Grateful for Friends

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog on Black Friday 2019.
Yes, it's already the day after Thanksgiving and another holiday in the books. We had a great family day yesterday and my food turned out perfectly. Lots of compliments from the Marsh family and that always makes me feel good. I spend two days spent in my kitchen preparing this meal so having the dishes turn out perfectly and the family raving over them is time well spent.
Today we are going over my son's to enjoy a leftover day with them. They spent yesterday with my daughter-in-laws family. This is a holiday that we share and I am okay with doing it that way.  
We didn't go out to do any shopping this morning because I am not sure what anyone wants as yet. But all the hustle and bustle getting ready for Christmas starts now. I am going to start decorating this weekend. My cards are under control for having enough already made. So it's just shopping and wrapping that needs to get started.
Anyway, let's move onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #767 on Splitcoaststampers.  Chris was the hostess and she chose pretty peacock, lovely lipstick and crushed curry for her color trio. Optional was a 4th color pumpkin pie.

Well, I thought I would give it a shot at making a Thanksgiving card with these colors. Fortunately, I didn't have to mail this card because it went to my next door neighbor. I will took it over yesterday with a box of chocolates. I have been seeing these Merci chocolates advertised on the Hallmark channel so I went in search of them. Needless to say she likes chocolates.

So back to my card. I had this older Stampin'-Up Paper Pumpkin kit "Layers of Gratitude" and I used elements from it. The accordion card base came in the kit and instead of stamping each panel I used designer paper.

The papers are from the Stampin Up "come to gather" and "perfectly artistic" collections. I also embossed crushed curry cardstock with the Stampin Up Boho Chic embossing folder on 2 of the panels.

The felt thanks letters came in the kit and they work for this week's optional. The first panel is stamped with a sentiment that came as part of the kit. The last panel is stamped with a sentiment from the August Paper pumpkin kit "the gift of fall".
Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time...….God bless.
