Thankful for you!

Hello, my friends!

I hope you've all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends! 
We have a few days now to catch our breath before we ring in the New Year. 

I've been wanting to play along with Paper Smooches for a while now but things have been a little busy.
I finally managed to snatch enough time to create a card for their December Challenge.
The challenge is "Flowers", 
and I'm linking it up in the nick of time! ;o)

I used a couple of the Paper Smooches freebies offered on their blog.
I combined the flower image, and two of the sentiments.
Then I printed out more of the flowers, fussy cut them out, 
and layered them up with dimensionals. 
I pierced the design and stitched it with embroidery floss.
Finally, I layered everything up, with the top layer adhered with foam tape.

Here's an angle that shows the dimension:

As always, at this time of year, we spend time reflecting on the happenings of the past year.
I know that for many of us it's been a year of both joys and sorrows.

One of my greatest joys is that you continue to visit my blog, 
and leave me your sweet words of encouragement!
So, this card is for each one of you...because I am thankful for you! :o)

I look forward to the New Year with hopeful anticipation!
God is good, and ever faithful, and He has much goodness in store for all of us!
EnJOY the rest of your holidays!

Absolutely love the stitching and the way you stamped the flowers twice before popping them up off the page. I really enjoy stitching on cards and layouts too.

Sorry to have been such a slacker about popping by lately Nancy. I have been so disorganized and just can't seem to get it together... darn, should have made a New Year's resolution!
I love the dimension you've given these little blossoms. Great idea and it's such a cute card.
