Thanksgiving Card

 
From the minute I saw the Comfort Cafe DSP I knew it would make great fall cards.  I love that it has traditional colors with a splash of "Pool Party" to give it a current feel.
 
For this card, I used Random Acts of Creativity Sketchbook Saturday #80 Challenge.  Here's the sketch:
 

 
I really like this sketch, so I'm betting you will see more cards with this design. 
 
Here's everything I used:

While we're on the topic of Thanksgiving, I'd like to share someone I'm very thankful to have in my life....our sweet son, Ben.  This is a picture of him from last week when he was at the park practicing for Special Olympics.  I can't imagine loving him more!
 
 



Who are YOU thankful for?  I bet it will brighten your Monday to think about that for a minute.
 
Have a wonderful week!
