DS27: I am THANKFUL...

Hey, everyone :)

TGIF!  Well, sorta :)  It' TGIT today since the kids don't have school tomorrow and I'm here today with a Deconstructed Sketch card that I am really excited to show you.

I have to admit, I was a little crazed as my week has been so busy and I was faced with the Wednesday night "what to do?" question for today's sketch...check it out:

I'm telling you- this is a FUN one!   I was so tired today I wasn't sure if my mojo was going to return but in talking to my good friend Jen last night on the phone, she reminded me that when I stop thinking about it, it just kinda happens!  Yeah, she's right.  Here is my card using the sentiment from Unity Stamp Co's "The Time is Now" set:

What do you think?  I really like the way the patchwork-y stuff came out using papers from My Mind's Eye (Stella/Rose collection) and the sentiment is not only pretty but so poignant for my life right now, and for the month of November.

I. am. thankful.

Be sure to visit the rest of the Deconstructed Sketch girls today to see their version of this FUN sketch:

Oooh love the Patchwork look Jess and those colors are Awesome together! I def agree with the whole being thankful sentiment. Sometimes it is so hard to just be thankful for what we have and then something happens to make us remember that what we have is pretty darn good! Love ya Chickie!
