So Thankful for You

For today's card I played along with 2 Power Poppy challenges....the monthly Power and Spark Challenge is all about giving thanks, and the weekly Creative Confetti Challenge wants us to use our monogram to create our project.

For the giving thanks part I used a wonderful new clear set called Fortunes of Fall. The maize image is also a digital stamp and now it's a clear stamp, so I had to have this set when it was released recently! For the sentiment I used one of the ones from the new set "So thankful for you". Right now our 22 yr old daughter is home visiting us....her and her boyfriend moved to Oklahoma City a year and a half ago and we haven't seen her since they moved so it's wonderful to have her home for a week. We had an early Thanksgiving with her and her older brother yesterday and then we all got to watch the Northern Lights as a family after dinner, which was a wonderful treat. Usually I'm the only one awake when the aurora comes out to dazzle Alaska!

For the Creative Confetti Challenge my monogram is LMJ. Therefore I chose:

L= Layers
M= Maize (the corn image)
J=Jewel (there is a blue rhinestone placed on the ribbon in the image).

The J was really tough and I went back and forth between the jewel and jute twine but ultimately ended up using the jewel.

Thanks for stopping by!
