Happy Thanksgiving

Yes this is Thanksgiving Day, a day I count my blessings and remember how much I have to be thankful for. God has so blessed me with a wonderful family, two precious daughters, 7 wonderful grand kids and the opportunity to have travelled a bit in my lifetime. I still want to finish my wish of travelling around the USA but that will be sometime later in my life.I love this little mouse its a digi from SNS that I purchased last week along with the candle. I really like working with the digi's because you can make them any size you need and Sweet n Sassy have some really cute digi's. This one I colored with copic's making the mouse gray with W3 and W1, B21, R11. Some really old scrap pieces of designer paper and real red card stock from SU.
I love this stamp of St. Nick, Santa, aka the good guy. I just used real red, Night of Navy, Kraft and DSP from SU with gold cording. I used Copic's just for the face and snowflakes E50, E51, R11, B0000, Spica's and some white Copic paint. I'll find the stamp tomorrow and then update my blog.

This is a simple little stamp but so perfectly called 'Peace on Earth' with the deer, the rabbit and the cardinal. My DSP is from DCWV and some old SU paper. I love the stitching and the bright green gingham ribbon.
For those that spent the day with family I hope you all took the time to share your many blessings with them. We are celebrating Thanksgiving on Saturday this year because my precious daughter had to work a 12 hour shift today at the hospital. She works 7AM to 7PM and we enjoy spending pretty much the whole day together making everything together. I want the kids, Allen, Vicki and hopefully Mom to share the many blessings we have had this past year and through out of lives.
God has been good even though some days I thinks he's really pushed me to my limit, I always seems to make it and thank him for the experience.
May God bless you all.

Love your choice of images for these cards. They're just wonderful! The little mouse in the teacup is darling!
