grateful..

Hey there! Short post today. We had a death in the family this past weekend and it's just been a long hard week. Actually, a long hard season but that's another story for another post. So, it's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown challenge!! This week, our hostess Wanda picked some great neutrals. Check them out:

We've had so many people praying for us this week and sending kind thoughts that I had thanksgiving on my mind and opted to use the colors in that way. As a blanket thank you to everyone who's been there for me lately! People who've made me smile and all. Here is my card:
I just love that patterned paper. I've had it for a few years and haven't ever used that particular pattern. Love the way it works with the thanks giving theme I was going for with this card.

Well, that's it for me. Be sure and check out what the other DT members have for this week and play along if you can. Next week is our last challenge for the year!
