WT194 - Thankful

Here is my card for today's Ways to use it Challenge WT194- Thankful. I know that this card doesn't strike you as your usual thank you card, but I made it today because of why I am thankful :)

I am thankful for the opportunity to be on 3 amazing design teams (Our Daily Bread Designs, Clear Dollar Stamps, Whipper Snapper Designs) and to have made many friends amongst the owners and designers that I work with. I am also thankful that I actually get to work with these amazing designers with so much talent and who are always overflowing with wonderful creations!

I am thankful to have a hobby where not only do I get to make fun things, but have bonded with a community of women all over the world who share the same passion of paper crafting :) I am thankful for forums and galleries such as Splitcoast Stampers and Papercraft Planet and for their moderators who spend endless hours working so that we can share our techniques, creations and most of all ourselves with others. - Without whom, I would still be making cards like this!

I am thankful for all of the amazing things that I have learned from all the women that spend time creating blogs to teach and share their tips and a bit of themselves. I am thankful to have stumbled upon a very cool tip to share with you today ;) hehehe - Here it is...Magic Erasers (Mr. Clean) take off all the gunk from versa mark, stazon and whatever else you may have stuck to your clear acrylic stamping blocks!!! Mine were so cruddy I could hardly see through them not to mention trying to get my unmounted stamps to stick to them! Magic erasers work like a charm. Oh yeah, I am also very thankful for Mr. Clean Magic Erasers *grin*

Just a reminder that Our Daily Bread is offering Free Shipping!!! Oh and if you would like something else to be thankful for, how about a chance to win some ODBD stamp blog candy?
