Wow, Thanksgiving is upon us and I'm ready. Our family has so much to be thankful for and it came home to us again yesterday . My granddaughters boyfriend had just dropped her off at home and was taking her car back to campus. He was on the interstate when an 18 wheeler lost a tire that came right through his windshield on the passengers side.  I'm so thankful he was not injured and that my granddaughter wasn't in the car with him.  He was shaken up pretty bad and the car is totalled. You see that on the news and never think it could happen to you or yours. So I thank God for being with him in the car.

This is the second card I shamelessly CASE'd and it was from Dawn Griffith
at https://dawnsstampingthoughts.net/. The image on the front is stamped in Versamark with a Stampin Up stamp called Night in Bethlehem and sponged over with soft suede ink by Stampin Up. The inside was done the same. So easy and it came out so pretty. There was no need to change anything about her card. Be kind to one another.
