Morning Peeps,

I have been looking forward to this Friday for a while. I have some Son and me time tonight, a first in absolutely ages, and were off to see Harry Potter and leaving Dad at home. This makes a change!

It's Hubby's birthday on Sunday, so were out again Saturday night, so my crafting time is seriously at risk here of not happening. Mind you after the last two weeks that I have had I could do with a good drink! 5 new tyres, a clutch, a wheel bearing, coming out to two flat tyres on different days of the week this week and someone reversing into my Husband's car is just a small insight to say the least. Enough of me moaning!

I had to do a card for being in the Top 5 at Raise the Bar last week and as this time of year in the US is Thanksgiving, the challenge set is "Thank you". Fortunately this little stamp from Crafts and Me is called "Thankful Blessing" by Molly Harrison and is available HERE and it already has the words Thankful across it so fitted quite appropriately. I'm not particularly happy with this card, but I don't know why. My mojo has conked out, probably to do with my last post, the Pop up Easel Card, lol. Hopefully it will return as I have a few cards that need making over the weekend, but I may have to do a night shift as I have a busy one.

The papers are from Bearly Mine Designs and I have used the collection Summer Light. The frame is a Marianne Design Creatables and the flowers are from wild orchid crafts. I used the Martha Stewart Frond punch for the leaves to finish it off. Lace and bling is from my stash.

I have entered this card into the following challenges:-

All Sorts - Sketch
Little Paper Shop - Die Cuts
Stamp with fun - Square
The Shabby Tea Room - Square
Beary Sweet Challenge - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Lets Give Thanks
