The Christmas Cardmaking begins...

Hello, dear friends. This will be a short posting. Due to the fact that Thanksgiving is upon us, I selected this quote. I know we really should give thanks daily for our blessings, and despite the issues I have been dealing with lately- that have been very stressful to me; I know my blessings are bountiful. I am thankful for so many things, not the least of which are the love and support of my family and friends. Even friends I have met through my blogging, that I may never lay eyes on face to face. I am thankful for those of you that have loved or cared about me, supported me and especially Miles. Thank you- Thank you- Thank you!

I recently did start making some Christmas cards, and I will try to post them every couple of days. I hope you like them!
