Thank You!

Sweet fall inspiration photo at The Shabby Tea Room!
For this challenge we were to use the colors,
brown, yellow, blue, and neutrals. 
And, use a thanks or thankful theme.

Happy Saturday!

I certainly thought I'd be here posting much earlier.  It amazes me how time just flies by!  My vacation is nearly over.  Back to work on Monday...sigh!  But, I enjoyed my vacation getting together with some friends, lunch with son, and visiting my Mom.  And, I'm looking forward to another vacation next month!

Ok, onto my card, which went together fairly well.  I had the blue pom pom trim for a long time and finally used it.  I put the heart and bird on cardboard for a little dimension.  I came across a cross stitch panel and put that to use.  It was accented by backstitching with gold thread.  Little pearls were added to finish off the card!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend!  Thanks so much for stopping by here today, take care and hugs!!:-))
