Thankful












Welcome to all followers and visitors, many thanks for visiting and continuing to leave comments I really appreciate the time you take to do this.

 Today at Make My Monday ,Sue has chosen the theme "Thankful" for our challenge.


  As our American friends celebrate Thanksgiving in November I chose an Autumnal theme, an image of a leaf fussy cut and embossed with clear embossing powder to bring out the beautiful colours teamed with a sentiment from TLC. Another CAS card. Sorry about the poor quality of the photo sadly the light was awful and the rich colours look washed out.

As we live in an area of relatively low restrictions we were able to meet our sons in Aberdeen for a meal out on Saturday, I hadn't seen them for several months so it was a really special day out.


 Pop over to the Challenge Blog for some inspiration and see the fabulous makes there.

I love your beautiful autumn CAS card, Meg! Wow, it's lovely - even with the poor lighting! I have that issue here in Michigan as well, so I have the same frustration of photographing cards. Happy to hear you got to see your sons! I'm missing mine so much. Stay safe and enjoy your week.

Hi Meg

Gorgeous rich colours on that leaf even if the sun didn't oblige! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!
My two sons went to Aberdeen university and I visited the city for my eldest's graduation in 2018 - the sun was very obliging on his graduation day and the granite sparkled! Unfortunately my middle sons' graduation this year was not so memorable - well not for good reasons anyway! But he loves Scotland and and has returned to do his masters "down the road" in Dundee!
