Thank You - World Gratitude Day

Fall is the time of year when we think about "Thanks".   Here in the states we've been celebrating Thanksgiving forever or so it seems but that holiday often gets boggled down with the food and the thanks part gets somewhat forgotten.  There's another thank you day to celebrate.  It's World Gratitude Day and no it wasn't created by Hallmark or some other card company to generate more business.  It was started in 1965 by the United Nations Meditation Group.  It's purpose is to express thanks for the great things individuals and groups do. WGD is September 21 but no one will mind if you send a belated thank you.
Here's the deets:
ink - hp printer
paper - Bazzill "Turquoise Mist" card stock; Wausau "Sand Textures" cs; Stampin' Up "Soft Suede" cs; Cosmo Cricket "Earth Love" dp
miscellaneous - copics; Spellbinder's "Picot Edge Circles" die; My Favorite Things "Open Scallop Edge" and "Circle" die-namics; sheer ribbon; baker's twine; button; pearls
Here's the challenges:
