Day TWO - 3 Days of Thanksgiving!

Thanks for joining me today! I have a simple card to share, but I also have a quote that has kept me grounded during some difficult times.  I want to share it with you and I hope it does the same for you! I have found out that FEAR is False Evidence Against Reality & I hope this helps someone somewhere today. We are not given the spirit of Fear! But a strong mind! I totally needed this today!

 Here's my card share for today. {Project Life card & Christmas Pines}
And an inspirational thought that keeps me grounded:
A work in progress...

What are you Thankful for?  I'm so thankful for the love of Christ in my life today! It's raining, snow is on the way, there are a host of things that I could say are just bugging me too, but one thing is for sure. Jesus loves me. I'm so glad that I know that he's real in my life and my family.

We were talking about doomsday preppers at work and how we, now more then ever, need to get ready for the end of the world! I'm a Walking Dead fan - so....it's probably going to be a ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!! I am getting off track...but seriously, today, YES for today, I'm holding on to my faith and believing that my future is in His hands and HE has big plans for me! Amen! Jer 29:11

Thanks for visiting and joining me today, in day 2 of giving thanks!

Card Ingredients & Measurements:
Project Life Card
Pool Party Subtles Designer Series Paper
Pool Party Card Stock
Linen Thread
Pool Party stitched satin ribbon
3 Rhinestones
Base: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
1st Layer: 5 1/4  x 4

3 Days of Thanks-Giving! Day One!

Good Morning everyone! Thanks for joining me.  Today is day ONE of my giving thanks series.  So here's what to expect!  
1. Inspiration for your creative minds! Because I know you are all very creative and love to share!  So do I.  So, there will be projects and creations here to hopefully inspire you to continue to be creative and share, share, share! 
2. Quotes of Inspiration: Who doesn't need some inspiring quotes every now and again? I know I do.  I need them to remind me of my vision, to "keep swimming" as they say - and a little touch of hope. Especially, when things don't seem to be going the way I'd expected. 
3. To Give thanks.  That's where you come in!  Feel free to comment and share what you are grateful for on any of the days of Thanksgiving.  Everyone should be thankful for something in their lives.  From the smallest thing like I found a $10 bill to I've survived cancer 2 times!  So grateful!  
Here is my project for day one!  & a video! To see the goodies I"ve included take a peek at the video!
These adorable boxes can be found in our main catalog!  
Here are the measurements;
11x3 3/8" for the box covering
1 x 11" for the belly band
1 x 3 1/4" for the candy wrappers
8 x 3 3/8 for the inside 
score @ 1", 2", 3 3/8", 5 3/8" 6 3/8", 7 3/8"

Here's the video:
What are you thankful for this holiday season? Me? So glad you asked...my husband. He's a hardworking truck driver, gracious enough to help me reach for my dreams while working on his own.  I'm so thankful for him.  He really is the wind beneath my wings.
