The Dazzlers are DUELING the Divas....again!

I need to give a shout out to Michelle for sending us (the Dazzlers) a wonderful kit this month!!

Our theme this month is so appropriate - "Thanksgiving/Gratitude".
The challenge is to tell you about the person who inspired you to make the card; someone we are grateful for!

The card kit included:
Image: DRS Designs on Neenah Solar Crest white
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
DP: The pumpkin and Graphic 45, Polka dot...Making Memories
Ribbon and Hemp: Michaels
Buttons: Creatology
Leaves: Recollections (Boutique Fleur Mulberry paper)

Now, do you want me to show you the card first, or tell you the story?

Since I feel like teasing you today....

I made this card with my forest friends in mind.  I am grateful for all the love and support they send my way, despite not ever meeting me in real life!  What more can a girl ask for?  Now, I need to tell you that I am not going to send this to any of these great friends...I am going to hang on to it and cherish it and the memories that inspired me to make it.

Thanks for stopping by today and letting me tease you before showing off my creation!
Stop by the other Darlings today and see what that have made to go with this month's theme!
