PIO #46 - Thankful

This week's Pile It On challenge is "Thankful".  If you're reading this post you have many things for which you can be thankful. First of all there's the power that's running your computer.  Over the last couple weeks many of my friends and relatives in New Jersey have been without electricity and it is not easy for them to go about their daily activities without it.  You can read and write so there's a teacher or two that deserve your gratitude.  I could go on with this list for a long time but you get the idea so make a card and play along with us at Pile It On.

The idea of Pile It On is to make a card for our challenge and at least one other but the more challenges you can enter the better.  If you need some help finding challenges you can check my sidebar for some but if you stop off at the Pile It On blog you'll find many more in the sidebar there and all the design team list the challenges they are entering their cards into so you'll find current challenges listed there. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Thankful Leaves" stamp and die set; Stampin' Up "Form and Function
ink - Stampin' Up "Pumpkin Pie" and "Soft Suede"; Memento "Rich Cocoa"
paper - Recollections card base and Neutrals card stock; Stampin' Up "Dusty Durango", "Crushed Curry" and "Soft Suede" card stock, "Patterns Pack - Neutrals" dsp; My Favorite Things "Kraft" card stock; Authentique "Thankful" dp
miscellaneous - My Favorite Things "Fall Leaves", "Circle Stax" and "Fishtail Flags Stax" die-namics; candy dots; brads; gold pearls; cotton cord; charm; Viva fold glitter pen; machine stitching
