Dueling Darlings Give Thanks

It is the 15th of the month and that means we get to show off a new Dueling Darlings challenge. For the November Challenge, Carol and Shelley decided on the theme.  Shelley is one of the Darlings and I am a part of the Diva team, which Carol is on!

This theme this month is: "Give Thanks".  Carol wrote the following:  We were thinking of going Thanksgiving, but thought "give thanks" would/could incorporate Thanksgiving or just be a thank you card.  Either way, we thought fall colors would be a nice touch.  With the Holiday Season upon us, we reflect upon all that we have to be thankful for;  so as an extra, we would like you to share what you are especially thankful for. 

I am thankful for all of my family and friends who are so special to me.  I am also very thankful for my health.  As I get older, I am so blessed to be healthy and I try hard every day to maintain!

Here is the inside of my card:

I hope all of the Darlings enjoy my card.

Image/Sentiment: Stampin' Up Grateful/Hobby Lobby Sentiment

Cardstock/Patterned Paper: White; Stampin' Up Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip; K & Company Patterned Paper

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories:  Copic Markers; Brown Baker's Twine over Brown Fiber; Brown Glitter Dots' Red Plastic Leaf

Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Divas as well the Dazzlers have created this month. All of the blogs are on the left sidebar of my blog. At this time, Suzy, who is a Diva, and Terry A, who is a Dazzler, do not have a blog.  You will be able to check our their creations in their SCS gallery, if you click on the link for their name.   I am sure you will enjoy all of the wonderful creations this month!

Wow Barb, your card is BEAUTIFUL...I love your layout the twine wrapped around the front and the leaf highlighting it. The inside is just as beautiful. I love how you used the leaves to accent they saying. Great job with this kit....♥♥♥

Sensational card, Barb! I am loving the scallop around your edges of your image! The colors palette is just so warm and rich and thanksgiving-y :) This is a signature Barb card and I love it!

So blessed and grateful to be in the DDD with you, all these years :)

The edges of the image are so fun. The panels you created are rich and lend to the image well. Great job!
