IFTL: "Happy Thanksgiving"


In a couple weeks we will be celebrating Thanksgiving Day.
I especially love this holiday. It's the day where family & friends get together and eat all day and night. At least that's what I do but most of all its the day where we laugh, catch up with what we have missed from one another, we hug, kiss, and sometimes even cry.
We sometimes get overwhelmed to see each other that we cry but happy tears. That's a good thing. The best thing is when we sit at the dinner table, we begin with a prayer which my sister always leads and then we go one by one to say what we are Thankful and Grateful for. By the time it's my turn I am already teary just listening to everyone's words. You see I have a lot to be Grateful for and I have been blessed with such beautiful and loving family & friends (that includes all my bloggie friends as well). With that being said I would like to announce to all my bloggie friends that this month's recipient over at "I Feel The Love Project" is:

This is from the "IFTL" blog:
Chancellors Village  is a community within the Senior Lifestyle organization. By engaging a caring team of dedicated professionals, Senior Lifestyle is at the forefront of creating fulfilling lifestyles that enrich seniors' lives today and tomorrow. 
As a resident of Chancellors Village, a hospitality-centered community, individuals find socially engaging and comforting lifestyle options that experts say are so important to healthy aging
The I Feel the Love Project is happy to announce that we will be partnering with this amazing senior care facility by sending handcrafted Thanksgiving cards to their residents.  We are asking for those of you who would like to be a part of this wonderful opportunity to create a Thanksgiving card(s) to the address listed below by November 7th
All you need to do is:
Submit your hand crafted card/s by November 7th to:
Madison Womack
IFTL Project
P.O. Box 1203
Atascadero, CA 93423 
Here are my cards:
I started with the pumpkin image from CAC2 Cartridge and gave it some texture with a swirl embossing folder. I glittered the leaves on my pumpkin and I attached a burlap string on a button and adhered it on the top of the glittery leaves. I placed the pumpkins with 3-D pop dots on the cream cardstock and used Autumn paper for the bottom portion of the card. I added a gorgeous orange bow and stamped "Happy Thanksgiving".
I am not done yet with my part in making cards for the "IFTL" Project. There are 200 residents.
I hope that I have inspired you to come and join us for this month's "IFTL" recipient.

All of the cards I have made him are displayed in the hutch for all to enjoy and he can look at every day.
