Let Us Be Thankful.....

Hello everyone: The Holiday Season is well on it's way, Autumn is also in full swing with it's gorgeous colors and the days are clean and crisp inviting all of us to start thinking Turkeys, Pumpkin pies, warm family gatherings and delicious food but also, about being grateful for all of these Blessings, big and small and how fortunate we are about having family and friends to share them with.  This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, our theme is "Gobble Til' You Wobble" which means we want to see cards about giving thanks, whether is a Thanksgiving card or just a simple "Thank You" card, please join us in the gallery.  Here is my card, made with this super old and really beautiful stamp from my little stash of Thanksgiving images, I didn't realize it until now, I truly do not have a lot of stamps for this time of the year, I need to remedy that!!

This image is stamped onto Strathmore Multi Media water color paper with Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed then colored with SU markers and an aqua painter.
The pattern paper is from a stash of left overs and the size was just perfect for this card, I didn't even had to measure it. The gold corner die cut was a left over from another project, the little flower is from a pack I bought from the dollar bin and it's been just sitting on my desk for a while.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts and it's OLD!! The image on the corner is from a Power Poppy set called Sunny Harvest, both inked up with SU Hello Honey.

I would like to enter this card onto the following challenges.
