A Thankful Heart

Hello everyone!  I hope the weekend has been good to you!  After all the devastation that has visited the east coast..... everyone needs to treat themselves to some TLC!

This is a card I created for The Outlawz: Twisted Thursday Challenge.   The theme is always anything goes but if you choose to participate in the 'twist", your name goes in twice!   The twist for this week is "THANKSGIVING".  Stop by as see all the wonderful inspiration the design team has created for you.

I used a wonderful sketch by Marianne Walker for my image.  This was a free digital image that
she created and of course, I had to snatch it.    I love the Fall Harvest feel the image has!   It reminds me of family and the celebration of "thankfulness".  I am truly grateful so many things in my life....
