Welcome to day 2 of the Things I'm Thankful For Blog Hop.

This is a 2 day hop so make sure you visit both days (yesterday and today).  There are some talented ladies on this hop and you won't want to miss a thing.  This hop is all about the things we are thankful for.  To see the Things I'm Thankful For Blog Hop Day 1, please click here.

If you just came from Jearise at Lorby's World, you are right on track.  If you just came across my blog and would like to hop along, please start over with Lisa at HoneyBearz Designs as she is our lovely hostess.

Here is the lineup in case you get lost...


So today's project is a little different.  I went with a card to give to my mommom on Thanksgiving Day. I love the simplicity of it. 

This Thanksgiving is a little special to me.  Every year for the last 10 years I would watch the Macy's Day Parade with my mommom while we cook the turkey and make all the yummy trimmings.  This year because my fiance and I were relocated from Delaware to Michigan, we were unsure we would be visiting for the Thanksgiving holiday thus breaking mine and my mommom's tradition.  As fate would have it, we were able to move back to Delaware and I'm thankful that I can still continue my family tradition!


Recipe:
All paper come from my scraps
Create A Critter Cricut cartridge
Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade
Border punch is EK Success


Thank you so much for hopping by and a special thank you to Lisa at HoneyBearz Designs for allowing me to be a hop stop.



Your next stop is Janet at Create, Believe, Imagine at Dreamscrapbooks.

Ashley I love this card. I can't believe you made it all out of scraps. What a great way to use up your scraps. I am so happy that you can carry on the tradition with your mommom Ashley I know that means a lot to you and I am so glad you are so happy. I have enjoyed having you a part of this hop with me and I am looking forward to you joining me in some other hops. Again thank you so much for joining me on this hop I really appreciate it.

I love this card design. Simple but yet elegant. Definitely a good on the polka dots and plaids. Two combinations I would of never thought to put together. And the fact its made of scraps is just an added bonus. :)
