When we are asked "What is one thing you are most thankful for?" , most of us would say our family. I am not only thankful for the family I grew up in, but I have been so blessed with 6 wonderful children. And now that family has grown to include 5 daughters and sons in law and ten grandchildren. Sometimes I am over-whelmed with gratitude for these blessings.
Today's card is a little quirky for me. Every once in awhile I try to break out of my symmetrical style and go for a little bit more artsy or shabby. Never very happy with the results but I think that is because it isn't normal or natural for me. But it is always fun trying.
The harvest image is Doodle Pantry from the October release. I will be posting another post soon with a set from the November release but I love this set. You can find it at the Doodle Pantry Store. It is called Let Us Be Thankful.

Back to the card - the image is precolored but I added a little color here and there. The main sentiment is also from this digital set. The two words are Stampin Up.
I have a package of chipboard buttons that I never seems to use because I don't do shabby or vintage very often. One seemed appropriate for this card. BG paper is from an old Autumn stack. Sorry, don't know the name; it is just a left over.
