It’s time for another fun challenge over at Retro Rubber. I hope you saw the beautiful cards submitted for our last challenge using the wonderful Autumn inspiration photo. The next challenge is to make a Thanksgiving or thank you card using the pretty colors in this photo. I love to send Thanksgiving cards, don’t you? It is truly one of my most favorite holidays since it’s all about family. I went through my holiday stamp collection and decided to use Mingle All the Way and Gratitude for Days. When I looked up when they came out, I was surprised that they both came out in the same 2014 Holiday Catalog.

There’s lots to “be thankful” for in my life right now. We have had some great news in our house lately so there will be some celebrating for all of our wonderful blessings. I have learned that even bad events in our life can bring something good. You just have to look for it!
