Happy Thanksgiving!

Good Morning and a Happy Sunday to ya!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful day  and thanking the Lord for all their many blessings.  In today's economy so many of us are struggling and facing hardships.  It's important to stop and look around you for all the many blessings that we may overlook.  One blessing we are having is that our garden is still producing, belive it or not.  I canned over 10 cases of salsa, tomatoe juice, and tomatoe sauce this summer.  I thought I was done, but our vines are crawling with tomatoes AGAIN!  Our peppers are still going strong even with 35 degree weather last week.  We have made our own pepper mixes and smoked chipotle peppers.  We've been able to share tons of fruit and vegetables with coworkers and friends that needed it.  One small blessing for us meant blessings for others too.  Take a minute and leave me a comment for what your blessed with today!

I have a Karen's Doodles image today "Scarecrow Girl".  I've used her before but she's so fun to color and I wanted to try her out in blues this time.  I continued the pattern on the inside and added a tag that reads "Thanksgiving Wishes".  My papers are from DCWV and the flowers are miscellaneous Prima.  I distressed all the edges with blue to continue the flow.  I know it's not contemporary Thanksgiving colors but I really like it nonetheless.

May each of you be blessed in some small way today!
