Control Freaks Gratitude Tour
Welcome to the Tour de Freaks, where the theme this month is GRATITUDE, and we all have much for which we are grateful! You may have just landed here from Debbie's blog, Debbie's Designs, or you might be starting here. There are nine stops on the tour, so be sure to click on the link at the bottom of each blog post so you can see all nine!
Gratitude is a subject near and dear to my heart; there is SO MUCH to be thankful for, if we just look around! It may be something as simple as having access to clean water (and indoor plumbing!), or a pet's love, or the ability to see and appreciate the beauty around us. I try to live each day with an attitude of gratitude....which leads me to my first card.
I am grateful for that copper foil; it is just so lovely and I can't get enough of it!!! It adds such a shiny, rich touch to everything.
For the next card, I thought the Basket of Wishes stamp set was just so appropriate. My mom is visiting and loves succulents, so when I showed her this card it made her smile! (I am grateful for my mom's smile!)
I was aware that succulents came in a variety of shapes and colors, but when I searched for images as color inspiration, I was in complete awe of all the variations! (Another thing to be thankful for!)
