HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

    I hope that you had fun celebrating your birthday today! I love this card with the striking contrast of bright, bold red with the calm, cool blue. The flowers make me think ahead to Spring…I was one of those dedicated early morning Black Friday shoppers, who stood in line with hundreds of other fellow shoppers! 🙂

  5. This is a great card! Love the bold Real Red with Soft Sky!

  6. I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving, too!
