Live in Thanksgiving Daily!

Hello!  Do you love this sentiment?  This is a new stamp I got when my friend and I went to Salado.  I love cards that have black and white and then a color and white together on the same card.  It is so striking to me.  When I first started picking out papers that I thought would be good to make my Thanksgiving cards, I came across this sheet by Teresa Collins with one whole side being sentiments in black and white about be thankful and on the opposite side there is a beautiful pattern with the colors of orange and white. I decided my new stamp would be a perfect sentiment.  The challenge came when I was deciding how I could make the card interesting but still leave as much of the thankful sentiment paper showing.  I think I did good ... here is my card ... enjoy!


Really this paper with all the quotes and sentiments would make a great background for a scrapbook page instead of using such a small portion for a card.  But I still love it.  I tried to position my elements so you could see some words like "thankful" and "gratitude".  I picked just a few of the quotes on this one sheet to share with you ...
Appreciate the little things.
Thankfulness live. learn. hope. repeat.
Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you will look back and realize these are the BIG things.
Purpose and meaning; friends and family; caring and community; love and work; appreciation and gratitude.
It is not what we have have in our life, it is who we have in our life that counts.
We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
Whatever our individual troubles and challenges may be, it's important to pause every now and then and appreciate all that we have, on every level.
These quotes go perfectly with my stamped sentiment!
