Cozy Family Time

Happy Thanksgiving week friends!
A big shout out to all of you in the US who are having a holiday this week, for the gratitude to the community of my crafty friends and most of all my family, thank you for making my life her on Rain Puddles and out there in life so much richer for being in it. Have a wonderful week and I hope a safe and encouraging one.

Now on to more inspiring crafty matters. Stampendous has an appropriate theme this focusing on our time with family and friends. Enjoying the times we have during the holidays and the season are always fun so of course there are some sweet stamps that will help us share our appreciation and memories with those we love.

Today's card is a mix of catalog and non catalog supplies. I started this image for the catalog and wasn't able to put it together for the catty so over the weekend I added the sprayed background and embossed snowflakes. Here's just how I made this sweet friends card.
