So Grateful

I really am so grateful for my family.
Being away from them last week made me realize I don't like going anywhere without them :(
I've decided I won't do that again.
Don't get me wrong, Vegas was nice but it would have been nicer with my family there.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to our summer vacation TOGETHER ;)
This card below was made using Jen's April Sketch For You To Try and a Unity Kit of the Month from last summer. I can't recall the name...sorry!
I quite like how this one came out.
Stamps: Unity; Cardstock: White, Choc chip, Jillibean Soup DP; Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa; Accessories: Copics, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Sewing Machine, Silver Brads, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!

Dawn, I agree with you about taking family with you. Sometimes, I think, it takes going without them sometimes to remember what we are truly thankful for, right? You are a sweet person and a talented artist, love the card and sentiment. The colors speak to me...
Hugz to you,
Sharon
