Giving Thanks

At Paper Lovin' Gals this week, we are giving thanks, while this is not a celebrated holiday in Australia, I think the concept is something we should all do each and every day.  

By taking time out to think about what we are grateful for, perhaps it puts our petty issues correctly in their place so we don't let them get out of hand.

So for me I am giving thanks that I have a place to live, apart from a few petty aches and pains I'm relatively healthy!, I have family and friends around me and I have this unstoppable urge to be creative.

The inspiration photo really had me wondering what to do, then as usual inspiration struck and I went with the lines in the bottom half of the picture to create this,  It was the quickest and simplest card I've made in ages.  

I used all the same colours and just swiped the inkpad from the centre of the card front to the outside edges.  Love the effect.  I've used the following colours to create this  Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango

Thanks for stopping by to gather your own inspiration, head on over to the Paper Lovin' Gals challenge site and see what other inspiration you can find.
