I love the way you set off your designer papers with dark brown cardstock, chose traditional fall colors, & used basic geometric designs. It ties everything together so well. I also love the rich colors you used in coloring in the cornucopia.

Love it Chris, don't know that its any less embellished, just not a lot of flowery, girlie stuff. Love the EF on the paper behind the brown ribbon, colors are so soft and earthy, and the Word stands out beautifully. Happy Thanksgiving, I am feeling blessed and thankful for each day.

Hi Chris~

This is such a wonderful card. I love this Scripture and it is such a beautiful focal point! I love the dp on the top...it looks like threads being woven back and forth across the page. I'm not sure which brown section is the die and which is the lace. I love the piece stretching across the card, especially. This card does have a masculine look to them, but I know, that I would be thrilled to receive this autumn colored card...and I am a girl friend...Girl Friend!

I am thankful for our friendship, Chris. You are so kind.

Hi Chris,

Please delete this so I don't have an uneven chance of winning that very generous drawing. I forgot to sign the Anonymous right above me. The one that ends with, "I am thankful for our friendship."

Sory for any inconvenience. Thank you for your help.

He IS Able!
