*Attitude of Gratitude - Day Fifteen and a special day for FAVE THINGS!* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....

Today I am grateful for a little girl named Brookie that loves to dress herself and blow bubbles! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And today is a SPECIAL day for "These are a Few of My Favorite Things" :):):):):):):):):):):) Within in this past month, I have found out that Stephanie's (the owner of Bella Blvd.) Brother-in-Law was killed in an accident and Dolores's (a bloggy friend) best friend is fighting breast cancer on a very limited income being a teacher....and BOTH ladies (Dolores and Stephanie) have asked for Thank You cards to be sent to them to have on hand for the many, many, many people that are assisting them in their time of need.   Soooooooooo at FAVE THINGS, we came up with the idea to help them and make it a challenge to all of you to help out too.... OUR CHALLENGE is ... make a THANK YOU CARD using your FAVE FALL COLORS and send it to one or both of these women in need if you decide to make more than one card!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Here is the links to read more on how to send the cards:

Here is the card I made for Stephanie's Sister :):):):):):):):):):)

And here is the one I made for Dolores's friend :):):):):):):):):):):):)

And Brookie wanted to make something she made a card for her friend Erika! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And I also wanted to share a LO I made for the latest challenge at "The Studio"... its all about being
LUCKY this time...and here is my take on it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I used some YUMMY papers, Creative Imaginations REAL WOOD paper and EAD Designs vinyl rub-ons...and to top it off Jillibean alphas! All YUMMY...all AWESOME together! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

PS...thanks for all the love on my braids I did in my hair on Saturday...I have never done that with my hair I wasn't sure if I looked good or thanks for all the confidence boosters on my hair! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Thanks for stopping by... I really appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
