Giving Thanks....

Hello and happy Tuesday! Well, at least I hope it's happy for you. We had a water main break in our neighborhood early this morning, and we are without water. There is a crew working on it as I type. They've been there since about 9:30 am. I just took my dog for a walk a bit ago, and they are still there. There was a worker standing chest deep in the hole they dug in the street! Yikes! It's not looking like they are gonna be done anytime soon. I haz a sad. Again.

Well, on to my thankful card! ☺ I made this using sketch #86 from Retro Sketches.

Here is the inside of my card:

...and the sketch:

Thankful for pumpkin pie? Why not? ☺ And would you look at that. I actually used not one, but two buttons on my card. Don't fall off your chair. I used coordinating stickers that came with the DP I used. Easy peasy. More of the same DP and another sticker on the inside, stamped with a sentiment, and I was done!

What am I thankful for? Washing four loads of laundry and also running the dish washer yesterday! I'd also be thankful if I'm able to take a shower today. Yeah. I'd really be thankful for that.

Have a great day!
