There is a sweet friend of mine, who came close to losing her life due to the treatment of cancer eleven years ago. She was on life support for four months. It was such a terrible time, that it is hard to even think about it today. Well, she did survive which is nothing but a miracle. And now every November she and her husband have an evening of Thanksgiving at their home for some of their closest friends. We do not look back and talk of her illness. We reflect on all that we have to be thankful for and talk of plans we have, to make life better for others. My friend and her husband both are gourmet cooks so not only is the company at the dinner special, the food is amazing!!! This past Saturday evening, we all gathered at their home for our annual evening of Thanksgiving. This is the card i am sending to her tomorrow, thanking her and her dear husband for their friendship and graciousness.
I used the Holiday Cakes cartridge to cut the branch with the acorns. I drew the lines on the acorns with a colored pencil. The vintage Thanksgiving image is a free image from Melin at Cooking With Cricut. The paper I used for the card is from K&Co. I added some lace from my sewing stash and a pretty sheer green ribbon and bow to compliment the branch. A few Recollection gems were added to give the card just the right bling.
The beautiful sentiment is created with the K Andrew Design stamp sets Fall-o-ween and Winged Things.
Both of these sets of stamps are so wonderful and versatile as all of Kristal's stamp sets are. You can check out all the wonderful stamp sets Kristal has created by clicking HERE.

And, while you are there take a look at all the inspiration the Design Team has created for you. Don't forget to visit their blogs and leave them some love.
