Bountiful Blessings, Fall Card (THT072)

It's Treehouse Challenge THURSDAY!  This week's theme is - What Are You Thankful For.  Here is my sample:

I used they layout from Clean & Simple Stamping (FTL112).  You might have noticed I also used this layout for my anniversary card (posted on 10/16/2010).  It's been a busy week and having this sketch to use really came in handy! 

What am I thankful for?  This week I'm very thankful for my gluten free life.  Being gluten free isn't always easy but the alternative is even worse.  I was reminded of that this past week when I had two encounters with gluten.  I'm back to my pain free self now and so thankful that my gluten free lifestyle has improved my health in ways I never really thought possible.

I'd love for you to join us on this week's challenge!  Just load your "What Are You Thankful For?" card to your blog or online gallery and link to it at Treehouse Stamps Challenge.

Julie, I love your card! What a great mix of awesome colors. Pretty flower, too. And, I do like your staging. I made a card for the October Contest Challenge but I don't like it so I'll try to make another. So glad you're pain free.
