Bountiful Blessings X 1,000 !!!!

Fall.... I LOVE it!!! The colors are so pretty and to me... it smells so fresh and crisp outside.  There was a time when I hated browns and oranges and golds but now... ohhhh I must say other than Spring, it's the prettiest time of the year!  Today my card was created for the Twisted Thursday Challenge over on The Outlawz Challenge site.  The twist was to make a Thanksgiving card.  How thankful can you be to have a bounty such as this to share on Thanksgiving???  

My card uses Melanie Muenchinger's, "Beyond Baskets", "Basket Additions" and "A Year of Borders".  And I must say... I think they work wonderfully together!!! 

My card begins with Pure Luxury Ivory card stock.  I added a layer of Kraft and then more Ivory on top.  I stamped my wheelbarrow and "bounty" on white and colored with Copic markers then cut out and added to the card using Pop Dots.  For the border I simply stamped it in Memento Rich Cocoa and then used my Copics to dot around it.  I really really like how this came out!  

I hope you join us over at the Outlawz for a challenge or two.  There's a new one every day!!

As a side note, I'd like to say that yesterday was my 1,000th blog post!!!!! OMGosh never EVER did I think I'd do this many posts when I first started my blog.  In fact... I had no clue WHERE to start with the blog.  Nor, was I even sure I knew HOW to write a post!!! LOL  But it certainly has been a lot of work  AND fun doing all the posts.  Mostly, I am thankful for the many friends I've met through my blog... YOU included!!!  It's been quite an adventure and I'm so glad and honored you chose to follow along and see where it goes!  But mostly, I'm thrilled you've stuck with me and that you leave me comments and let me know how I'm doing!  It's important, you know?  I'm the type who loves to learn and grow from everything I do so when you leave me a comment, I know you are enjoying what you see and that  all the work and preparation that goes into a post are appreciated.  

So I will close with a huge THANK YOU! for helping me to continue blogging and sharing my work with you!!! YOU are what makes it all worth while!!! *HUGS*
