Happy Thanksgiving: Feeling Blessed Today

Happy Thanksgiving! I woke up feeling blessed today. Blessed to have close family and friends that I know will not let me down and are appreciative that we are in their lives. 

Life has thrown my husband and I some curve balls these last few years. Some pretty bad stuff. A combination of a Jerry Springer show and a horror movie all rolled in to one. Young lives have been ruined and I have found that bad people can lie and get away with terrible things at times and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. I have found it hard to breathe some days. After a particularly harrowing situation about a year ago,  we decided to stop dwelling on the bad things and things we have no control over. Stopped letting those things rule the day. Instead, we let joy and thankfulness rule the day. I'm not saying we are never sad or unhappy about the things that have happened. We just realize that life is too short to be upset 24/7. 

On to the card for today: how do you turn holly leaves in to autumn leaves? When you stamp them with Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie! All products Stampin' Up!

I just love the texture of the holly leaves in the Good Tidings set. I have tried stamping them in many different colors for interesting backgrounds and they all look lovely. By keeping the leaves and the holly berries in autumn tones, it completely changes the look from Christmas to Autumn.
