Thankful Thursday - Simple and Easy Vanilla Card

Hello Dear Friends

Sorry that I got busy and neglected you.  Things sure have been crazy around here - they probably have been where you are too, huh?

But even with life being crazy, we still should all take the time to be Thankful.  And I am.  I absolutely am.  You see, today begins one of the holiest times of the year.  And I have a *lot* to be thankful for.

We all have a lot to be thankful for.

Today is Holy Thursday.  The first day of the single saddest event in the history of mankind.  And the beginning of the most glorious!  

Yes my friends.  We have a *lot* to be thankful for!  It's as simple as that.  So my card is simple too.  Just strips of Vanilla cardstock that have been embossed with various patterns.  No two the same length.  No two the same pattern.  

Kinda like us, huh?     :)

You might notice though, that all of them are facing the same direction - the 'thanks'.

So whether you are getting ready to drive somewhere to visit relatives for this long Easter weekend, or staying put at home, whether you will be spending much of your weekend in a church giving praise, or spending your time on the couch watching tv, no matter how you plan to spend your time this weekend -- I hope at some point, you are thankful.  Because we have been blessed beyond compare.  Truly and remarkably blessed.

I hope for you and yours, that these last few days leading up to Easter Sunday are a time of great happiness for you.  Peace.  Joy.  And Fulfillment.  I hope you are filled with Thankfulness.  And a recognition for all the things you have to be thankful for.  
And for today itself, I wish you a peaceful and peace-filled Holy Thursday.
May God Bless you all,     ~Cynthia     <><

  1. This card is absolutely beautiful!

    1. Thanks so much Laurie! Sometimes we worry too much about trying to match colours and adding layers and embellishments -- when tone-on-tone simplicity will do just as well! I was really pleased with how this card turned out. I am glad you like it too! Hope you are having a spectacular weekend! God Bless, ~Cynthia <><

  2. Hi! Love the card above! Looks like you just used embossing folders and glued them on the card! Very nice!! Pat

    1. You got that one right Pat - that's exactly what I did! Isn't it amazing how elegant the card looks when in reality, it was easy-peasy! Sometimes simplicity really is the way to go.
      Glad you liked it and thanks for leaving your comment! Have a great day and God Bless, ~Cynthia <><
