FBW83 Giving Thanks

I really love this time of year because I try to focus on the things that I am thankful for around me. I am thankful for my family and friends, our good health, our freedom, and the many blessings we have had this year. I have been thankful this year for being able to make my Flutterby cards every week and the opportunity and privilege of serving on such a fantastic design team. These girls are top notch and fun and kind...it's been an honor, and I am thankful for them. Without butterflies, this wouldn't have been possible. So, in essence, I am thankful also for butterflies and the power that they had to bring all of us together!

Our theme this week is giving thanks...and it can have any interpretation that you can come up with. The only requirement is that the card includes a butterfly and/or fairy on it. We would love to see your creation...just link it up HERE. My other design team members would love for you to visit their creations also...a complete list is in my left sidebar. My card is also for this week's MOJO 112 sketch. Thank you for visiting my blog!

Nancy,

Your creation for last week's flutter By is so good!!!!

I am so sorry I have not been able to come out and leave my compliments very much lately but I hopey you know it is not because I have not wanted to it is just the 3 kiddo's schedules are keeping me insanely busy these days and I am still keeping up with your gorgeous creations through my google reader, but I know that does not mean as much as a comment would I just want to stress that I adore you work and your spirit and your creations so much!!!

I really enjoyed reading your Thankful post too!!!!
