It's the Season for Gratitude

If you've been reading my blog you know by now that I love the Fall! Everything about this time of year brings me joy. And this year, Thanksgiving happens to "fall" on my birthday (or does my birthday fall on Thanksgiving? I guess since the date of Thanksgiving changes and my birthday stays constant, the former is more accurate)... And since I have a brand-new kitchen to cook in this year, we are hosting a large group of beloved friends in our home on the big T-day B-day. I am having a great time planning the menu, table decorations, party favors, entertainment, etc. Can't wait! It's gonna be lots of fun.

I'd thought I'd share one of my newer season-appropriate clear stamp sets today. This one is (appropriately) called GRATITUDE, and you can get it here. When I create my text-based designs I really try to find quotes that are more unique and less-heard-of. I love this set, and it can be used year-round for thank-you cards, scrap-book pages, wall art, and other mixed-media projects. Lots of possibilities here! Enjoy.

Time to run. Go hug someone today!
