A week of Thanks and Giving Challenge...

Dont' you just LOVE it when things come together for a greater good??!!!



...Last night while listening to one of my favorite radio stations, they had a call in called "Thanks and Giving" and I thought How cute is that???
...so this morning over my cup-O-joe, I was looking over this card I made from Crafty Secrets products "Grateful"...and it all fell into place!


I would like to start off this challenge with a Thanks and a Giving for the next 7 days...and extend it to all my blog friends to do the same...then post a link here to your blog...

Doesn't that sound like a great way to begin the Thanksgiving countdown week???
International bloggers, please feel welcome to participate also :0)

...I'll go first...
My Thanks is: ...that God is the center of my life, I will be married for 20 yrs. in Dec. to a loving husband...I have the most talented and beautiful 3 kids any Mom could ask for...and that my Melanoma was discovered early and removed completely!!!
and my Giving will be: these free images for you to use from my collection!

To the best of my knowledge these images are free from copyright and can be downloaded and used in your art :0

Now, it's your turn! What are you thankful for and what to you want to give/share with us??? The giving can be anything...if you have been inspired by this challenge and made something for a friend or family member or you can also share a recipe...anything! Kind of like a Pay-It-Forward :0)
To participate, just post a link below :0) Looking forward to seeing all your links!

Hi, Amber. I'm thankful for my husband of almost 40 years, my three children and their spouses and my eleven grandchildren. I'm going to share the best pumpkin dessert recipe ever if you visit my blog for the recipe. Sally

Your gratitude card is beautiful!! We've already had our Thanksgiving in Canada but I give thanks every day for my health, my family, my friends and the fact that I've woken up to one more day..each one is a special gift. Thank you for giving us these graphics. You are extremely generous!

Canadian Thanksgiving is in October, but would like to celebrate with my American friends. Please stop by my blog and to pick up a couple of graphics and to read what I am thankful for.

This is a wonderful way to celebrate.

Blessings,
Mary

I am thankful be able to see others walking and having the ability to make their dreams come true. Just knowing that they can do that puts a smile on my face.
