A Gratitude Attitude

I have so much for which to be thankful.....family, home, health, friends, and security. Keeping a 'gratitude attitude' to me means focusing on what I have, not what I do not have. I have discovered in my retirement  that keeping up with the Joneses is not important. When I worked and was out in the world it was easy to get caught up in wanting the newest. Maybe my age is showing, but I am content. I am grateful.

I created a 'thank you' card today to sent to a friend. I want her to know how much she is appreciated. This card was made for the Crazy 4 Challengs blog. The challenge (C4C45) is to use red, white, and black. I used a Whimsie Doodles image, Copic markers, Glossy Accents, and Nestabilities. I embellished with ribbon and a button.


This is an easel card. The directions to make one can be found here.


Have a great day! Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. I appreciate you! Leave a comment if you have the time.
