I’m Thankful For

house shaped card in beige, red and turquoise with front door and two windows die cut, a row of flowers at the bottom of the house and a rolled up newspaper at the front door
while i have many things i’m thankful for, i’m focusing on just one for this week’s impression obsession challenge. as i’ve mentioned before, i have severe RA, which makes daily living activities difficult, not to mention how the fatigue slows me down; however, DH is a tremendous help around the house and he always supports my need to create and encourages me along my card making journey. so, even though he has a stash of my cards, i made this shaped card for him. i used two impression obsession dies from my recent IO blog hop win: DIE009-Z the house and hydrangea for the flowers, which i sponged. i also used the door and window die, added a gold pearl for the doorknob and a rolled up piece of text paper for the newspaper. thanks for popping by.
