Thinking about Thanks!

Some of my favorite themes to create with are "THANKS" and "FALL". I love the colors of fall and there are so many reasons to tell someone thank you, not just at Thanksgiving.

This saying would work for really anytime of year, but it works especially well for Thanksgiving time.
I love the extreme contrast between the gold/oranges and the strong black of the image and the words.
This card represents a very simple design and a great little way to thank a friend for any reason.
These circles are part of a piece of patterned paper and a circle punch helped make them a fun accent to my card.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Gorgeous cards Linda! I love the color combo. You really ought to come to Hip Hop with Unity and win some stamps. You'd love them, and I'd love to see what you would do with them. I LOVE your creations.
