Thankful in Tajikistan. Yes, we're so very thankful for all the Lord has provided for us this past year: family, health, friends, most of all, Grace. It's quite different for my husband and I, being away from our family for the holidays...I can name the times that we have been apart on one hand (our entire lives...). We're celebrating Thanksgiving with some friends, hopefully pictures to come, and on Skype, of course!
Here's a little banner that I've put together for Thanksgiving. Kind of difficult to get a picture, but here it is. It's hanging on my mirrored back china cabinet in my dining room...you can see the reflection of the persimmons hanging in the trees, and the white ironwork that protects our home from any funny business.
I used a mix of papers from my stash, mostly Stampin' Up, along with Stampin' Up Chipboard letters. I cut triangles and layered the decorator paper over thin cardboard of the same size and shape for durability.
Other products used: May Art's Striped Ribbon and Burlap String (The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store); Spellbinder Nested Maple Leaf, Postage Stamp, and Labels 20 dies (The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store); Tim Holtz Typeset Die; Stampin' Up Scallop Border Punch; Gold Stickles; and vintage buttons and bling. Sharon's 3 Day Sale is running through today, Wednesday.
Thank you readers and friends, for all of the support you have provided to my blog and myself this past year. I truly appreciate it!
Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
