Thankful on Thursday


If you popped by last Thursday, you know that I did a Thankful on Thursday post.  I'm still not sure that I'm going to do this every week, but typing this up on Wednesday night and I'm feeling thankful!  So here goes...today I'm thankful for:
  • The honesty of children.  
  • A hobby that man oh man can take my mind off just about anything.  90 minutes in my craft room was exactly what I needed to relax.
  • Funny questions from little boys.  Marcel asked me yesterday if I was going on a field trip anytime soon. I love his perspective...what he wanted to know was if I was going out of town for work this week.  Wouldn't it be fun if we called business trips field trips?
  • Exercise (yes...this is strange, but when I exercise regularly, I do feel better).  Hopefully I'll remember this when the alarm goes off tomorrow morning.
And...I have a card for you for the current Runway Inspired.  It used two new PaperSmooches sets:  Salutations and Bold Blooms and I have to say that I've in love with this card.

So...this is question week on the blog...what are you thankful for today?  

PS thanks for the tips on the new SU ink.  Inking up softly seemed to help tonight.

Such a pretty sympathy card...love how you did the branch.

Thankful Thursday...lovin' this feature. I think it's always good to be reminded about the things we are thankful for!

I'm thankful for my lovely kids...they make me laugh and as graduation draws near for my girl, I realize how quickly time flies by.

Beautiful sympathy card, Lynn! Wonderful stamping and love the branch!

I'm glad you decided to do another Thankful on Thursday post - so important to remind ourselves about the good things in our lives!

I'm thankful for so many things, but I'll give ya a goofy one this time: I'm thankful for the fact that the winter storm that's heading this way is going to miss us and go more north! YAY! :)

Really beautiful Lynn, your sympathy card captures the essence of the inspiration photo.

I love the color combination of this card - the blue and brown. Beautiful.

I am very thankful for family and friends - don't know where I would be without them.

Tasnim said...

Wow this is awesome!!

Maureen said...

what a perfect interpretation of the inspiration photo! I'm thankful I live close to work so I don't have to drive far when it snows! We've had a big dump over the last few days. I'm also thankful for tomorrow being Friday! LOL Yes, more field trips should be on the list for us! LOL

This is a great card for this challenge. The colours of the stamps and the design is perfect x

Marisa said...

Wonderful take on the insp. picture :) Had to giggle at the field trip question - love how kids think. Top of my list was when I told my son that we would have to send some dear neighbours that moved some of our strawberry runners for their new house as our patch came from their runners a few years back. He looked at me with a puzzled face and asked how one goes about e-mailing strawberries :)

LOVE that color palette, girl! Yummy!

*Swoon* This is officially my new favourite card of yours! Love your gorgeous layered stamping and the dimension of the brach. Gorgeous!

I am thankful for Luis and how he shows me how much he loves me in so many little ways.

Deb said...

This is so pretty, Lynn! Gorgeous! I am thankful for my children. I have heard some pretty negative comments from people that do not have children and it has hurt my heart deeply.


I love Marcels comment! Just tonight when I put my daughter to bed, she said, "Mommy, I think it would be best if Josh started picking up after himself." She is 5 and Josh is almost 18 months. Kids say the darndest things!

Love your stamping and the added wood chip provides the right element for this design! I am thankful that I can make card/blog whenever I want...it's the BEST :) So glad that you join the fun with us at Runway Inspired Challenge!

Arlene said...

WOW, this is perfect for the photo inspiration. Love it a lot.

Cristina said...

Beautiful card, and such yummy colors. I'm thankful for a little bean who is finally sleeping through the night! :) (And I love the prompt generally-speaking. One of my resolutions for this year is to be less annoyed and more grateful. Working on it...)

Katie Gehring said...

This is such a sweet card. This week, I am thankful for my little family and good health (it's an easy thing to take for granted until someone is not feeling well.)

This is a stunning card with beautiful balance. Thanks for joining us on the Runway!
