With a Thankful Heart

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

This past week we were drenched with heavy rains -  11.5 inches of rain in my community. I live in a low lying area beside a canal which overflows during heavy rains. After two rain events of water going in my house many years ago, a levee was built surrounding our property. A pump was installed to pump water out and quite often we have to use a tractor/pump system to help out. Thankfully I was blessed that no water got in my house. Unfortunately, nearby towns and cities received 20.5 inches of rain. Homes and businesses are flooded, roads and the interstate have been impassable. I am so thankful to see the sunshine today!! My prayers are with all the families that have suffered loss.

I am sharing a thank you card today using the pretty sketch at Paper Play Sketches. The card is 5" x 6 1/2" white cardstock. Patterned papers are Momenta Textured and Double-Sided papers. Solid papers are from scrap stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
Spring Fling - Flower Branch is cut 2.50" high. Cricut Midnight pen is used for the drawing. I like the look of this flower branch.
Bits and Pieces - Banner is cut 4.35" wide x 1.60" high.

I hand cut the two sentiment mats. With a Thankful Heart is from CardzTV Heartfelt Wishes. Thank you Mary for my recent win! Love these stamps!

Martha Stewart Embossed ZigZag is used on the lower piece of paper.

Finishing touch is a crinkle ribbon bow from Little Scrap Pieces. Karen, I love the ribbons that I recently won!

  1. What a beautiful card!! I love how you used the different patterned papers. I have difficulty matching them unless they come from the same kit.
    I will have to try this sketch, it's just my style!!

  2. A very pretty card, Glenda. I'm so glad the flooding is not affecting you directly. Not far from where I am is so much flooding and it will get worse in a couple of days with the dam opening the spillways. I'm praying for all those affected.

  3. Very beautiful. So glad you linked up! Thanks for linking up your project at Paper Play Sketches.
