I am screaming in at the last moment with my Thanksgiving place cards for CASology Week 20

Here is the most delicious bird that was eaten at our table.  I love this celebration of gratitude.  For those who celebrate Thanksgiving, my  favorite day of the year, I hope yours was warm, wonderful and delicious.  For those who do not, I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by today.

Snowflake Christmas

I created this card with the inspiration of CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #4 and the "Accentuate the Negative" challenge over at Catered Crop which is to create a project using negative spaces created from your die cuts, punches, electronic cutters (like a Silhouette or Cricut), etc..  Both the sketch and the technique were wonderful to work with. Thanks for stopping in today.

The aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and PDCC156 inspired this creation.  I have so much to be thankful for.  I have a warm house, plenty of food, family and friends who are close and safe even though many still do not have power after Sandy.  My heart is breaking over the devastation of the (my beloved) Jersey Shoreline. Heard news this morning that there is a large stretch on the barrier island where Seaside Heights is, from which people are being evacuated today because of a huge break in a sewer line.  The area is toxic and there are fires and all kinds of other devastation.  They are estimating that in some of those towns, people will not be able to go back to their homes for 8 months.  Many have no home to go back to at all. The stories and the pictures and the reports are almost too much to bear.  And these areas are relatively near to where I sit in my warm home crafting. Gratitude. There is so much to be done here. So many prayers needed. So much money needed to restore the shore and many otherea of the beautiful Garden State and and surrounding states to make their residents whole.  I am overwhelmed with gratitude and sadness today.  Please keep a good thought for New Jersey and the other places that were hit by this devastating storm.  Thanks for visiting and reading on.
