Good Morning Friends,

Welcome to another.........
 DL.ART Thankful  Thursday challenge

THEME: INSPIRED BY PHOTO (this is what I am Thankful for)

I am thankful for so many things in my life and I have to share this with you because, this was the reason I started the Thankful Thursday challenge. On Tuesday of last week on my way home from work, I decided to stop and take this photo so you could see what I get to see all most everyday, if I chose to take this route.  Sometimes I take this amazing view for granted  and just drive by. 

Here are a few photos for some inspiration for you. Always remember to focus on what you have and not dwell on what you do not.

 Across the bay on the Horizon line is Monterey- about 45 miles-- That is where I go to get Michaels (ha ha)

This is the appetizer I shared with my husband on our Anniversary-- Yummmy-

Here is the card I made  for more inspiration.

 Kraft card stock

The challenge will begin on November 15th at 9:00 am and end on December 1ST at 11:59 pm.
The PRIZE will be: 
2 packages of creative charms 
shimmer flowers (brads)
