Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

For the past few months I've been dealing with some personal health issues.  Luckily, I'm well on the road to recovery....hopefully there won't be any more speed bumps on that road.  It's been difficult and emotional but I realize that it could always be worse.  One thing I've learned through this is that I have a lot to be Thankful for.  I have some absolutely AMAZING Friends and Family that have been supportive and loving.  I am not the best at letting people take care of me...but the reality is that sometimes in life you're going to need someone to take care of you.  In those times when things have been the most challenging I came to see how LUCKY I am. This card is just a simple and heartfelt THANK YOU.



Besides gratitude, this card was inspired by a couple challenges.  This week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge is to use Black & White and another color - I chose RED.  I'm also entering this card in the Moxie Fab World Repetition challenge using my stamped flower as my repeating image.  I stamped a row of 4 flowers followed by a row of 3 flowers to create a repetitive pattern.  Then I colored the centers of the flowers with a red marker.  The flower and sentiment are both from Hero Arts.  (I finally figured out what to do with those little stamps - LOL)

Last, but certainly not least, I'm THANKFUL for my Blog Followers/Friends.  It's nice to know people that really understand what I'm talking about when I describe how I made my card :)

THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!
