Welcome to the Things I'm Thankful for Blog Hop

Please click here for the Thankful Hearts Blog Hop
Welcome to the Things I'm Thankful For Blog Hop. This blog hop runs from November 18th through November 19th. For a lot of people, Thanksgiving has become a day to watch football, eat turkey, and watch the Macy's Day Parade. While these are not bad things, some believe the most important part of Thanksgiving is giving thanks to God for our many blessings. God was very much a part of that first Thanksgiving. Although some would say it was just a day of celebration. Historical records show it was a time to give thanks to God.The pilgrims looked at everything as a gift from God, even the sorrowful things they saw as God allowing them to perfect their character. So with that being said we have created this "Things I'm Thankful" blog hop to show you some things we are thankful for and some wonderful things we think of when we think of Thanksgiving. We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented creators. You will see some lovely projects having to do with Thanksgiving and things we are thankful for and have a chance to win some blog candy along the way. If you have come from (person before you blog info) you are right on track if not you can start at the beginning Honey Bearz Designs. I am so glad you joined us today! 
I have a card today that I made for a very special aunt and uncle back in Michigan. These two have stepped in watching out for me after my parents' deaths and I am close to them and their children who are only a few years younger than I. Let me remind you that I am in my 40's. It's people like this that make a family a family. Thank you Aunt Kathy and Uncle Pete.
The card is an A2 from a fall DSWV card box and then I used striped fall paper from the DCWV Amber Autumn stack. I embossed the design using Wet Look Embossing Markers and white embossing powder. I colored in the design with Bic markers and then I put gold Color Box pigment stamp over the whole thing. I wish I could have gotten a better picture because you end up with a very cool design. The "Thankful" is from Ashlen's Alphabet cut at 3/4 inches high.
I hope you have enjoyed this hop to show thanks during this wonderful time of year. Please add any comments or questions and if you're in a "click" mood, I would love to have you as a follower. Happy Thanksgiving.
