Happy Thanksgiving! - and a giveaway!

I have 2 posts today, so be sure to scroll down to see today's card project!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of year.  I am thankful for so many things!  I am thankful for my loving family, God's blessings in my life, a comfortable home to live in, the beauty of this earth, the freedom that I enjoy, good health, and many more things. 

I thought you might enjoy this video filmed on the streets of New York:

I am also thankful for all of your sweet comments!  Sooooo . . . I thought I would do a giveaway to show my gratitude.  :-)  All you have to do to enter is leave a comment saying what you are thankful for, your 3 favorite colors of Crinkle Ribbon, and a way to contact you if you win.  How easy is that?!?! Of course, I don't mind if you become a follower if you aren't already!


Winners will be announced Monday (November 29th) after Thanksgiving weekend!

"A grateful heart . . . comes through expressing gratitude to our Heavenly Father for His blessings and to those around us for all that they bring into our lives. . . . Sincerely giving thanks not only helps us recognize our blessings, but it also unlocks the doors of heaven and helps us feel God’s love." - Thomas S. Monson

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!
