Good Morning Friends,

Welcome to another.........
 DL.ART Thankful  Thursday challenge


I am thankful for so many things in my life and I have to say, and being reminded of it is heart rendering. The other day I was having lunch at a health food store/restaurant and  a women sitting next to me  at the counter, struck up a conversation about reflexology. We got on the subject of my shoulder and arm- (for those of you who have followed my blog for awhile, you know what I'm talking about). Long story short I was feeling a little sorry for myself because of my injury. After we were done talking I turned to my left and there sat next to me a man with a prosthesis for his right arm and hand. We talked for awhile, he was eating a salad, one of the most time consuming meals to eat, even when your hands are normal. He was heading back home to the northeast, where he hoped when he returned he would have electricity.
I quit feeling sorry for myself real quick

Here is my project for today for some inspiration for you. Remember to be thankful for what you have

 I used The Damask Decor cricut cartridge  for the  pumpkin and flourish image. All my card stock is PTI.
 I used brown sugar ink Jenni Bowlin for the stamped sentiment
and sunset orange skittles for the three accents on the right.
The beautiful crinkle ribbon is gingerbread cookies from My Craft Spot

The challenge will begin on November 8th at 9:00 am and end on November 24th at 11:59 pm.

I have a sponsor for this challenge, My good Friend Carri  a busy- bee from Double-Click-connect

The PRIZE will be:  Skittles--- 3 bags (25 to a bag) your choice of colors

  9. Diana, Count your blessings, oh my how different would things be if ONLY we remembered to do this. The little song we sang at Sunday school in the early 1950's is now ringing in my heart. I to had the opportuninty to slip into self pity today however I chose not to. Your card is a beautiful creation. It blessed me. Thank you so much.

  14. Isn't it amazing how people seem to walk into your life and tell you their story just when you need to hear it the most? I have something called Meniere's disease. I get really bad vertigo and sometimes have to stay in bed for days or even weeks. I have vomiting and really bad ringing in my ears. I can't watch TV, I have to lie very still in a dark, cool room....and then it goes away and I am well again. While all of this is going on, my family & friends are in and out of my room visiting me and making sure I am comfortable and waiting on me. Oh I can have a pity party for myself!

    The other day, I met a woman who has no one..NO ONE..her husband died years ago from a heart attack, her daughter & grandson died in a car accident, she never had any brothers or sisters, her parents are gone...

    Oh how blessed I am!

  15. Such a pretty card Diana, and thank you for sharing this story with us. We all have our own blessings and it sure is wonderful when HE shows them to us!
    Have a SUPER day and thanks for the FUN!
