Happy Thanksgiving!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

I hope you are having a relaxing day with family today. The Stampendous Design Team is reflecting on Family and Friends this week and I personally want to thank you for all the support you give me throughout the year. Your comments mean the world to me and I truly appreciate the time you take to read and comment on my blog. I LOVE sharing with you!

Today I have chosen the Fall Borders stencil (LJ874). It's a gorgeous stencil with two different corner images on one stencil.  You can use both of them, or one at a time. I just love the pumpkin corner, and paired with a great sentiment from the Friendship Assortment Set, it makes a wonderful Thanksgiving card.
