CCCB 82 - Thanks*giving


It seems like there is always something that keeps me from playing my most favorite challenges.  Right now it is those dust bunnies haunting me, they are hanging about beneath the dining room table, and they will NOT go away.  So I worry and fret over them, and put out traps that never seem to catch them ....

At City Crafter this week we have a Thanks*Giving challenge - a thank you card or a homemade gift.  I chose the thank you card, as my brain is just a little addled lately, and I would be likely to create something perfectly awful for someone I truly love, probably made from dust bunnies.  *sigh*

Here is my Thanksgiving tree this year !

And my Thank You card ......

Cardstock – Bazzill (Sage)
Design Paper – K & Co (flora & fauna ledger),
