I don't think I will ever be one of those bloggers who has their act together enough to post a card before the actual holiday it was made for. I'm lucky these cards even got mailed before Thanksgiving! So, it may be a day late, but I have a lot to be grateful for including a house full of loved ones on Thanksgiving and lunch with high school friends today! And here are the Thanksgiving cards I made this year. They all use the same basic design and an old Simon Says Stamp card kit. (I also incorporated a Hero Arts background stamp into the one design.)
Here is the first design:
And, a close-up:
Guess it's time to start making Christmas cards!

Have you seen Jennifer McGuire's Share Handmade Kindness Challenge? This week's challenge was to make a little something something for a family member or friend. Using Jennifer's card as inspiration, I created a small stamp background.
Here's Jennifer's cards that I used as inspiration:
And here's my card:
A new challenge is set to go up tomorrow, and I can't wait to play! Why don't you join in too!

Some 25 years ago, my husband gave me the most beautiful gift -- his last name. Many people often comment on how nice my name is and point out that my last name means "eternal." When I started making cards I began using a play on words for my signature and instead of signing "eternally yours" on the back, I used "Eterno-ly yours." That became my creative signature and there was no second guessing what I would name this blog!
