Sunday after church we went to the Heathman Lodge (Hudson Grill) for lunch. While seated and waiting for our food, I admired the mural, painted high above on the wall. We eat there often, so I've looked at the mural many times, but with Thanksgiving just days away (11 to be exact), I decided to take a picture to introduce the theme of today's post...
On the far left, and out of the view of my cell phone camera, Indians cook a meal over an open fire while the family on the right shares a feast together. At a glance, both the painting above and my card below, reminds me how much I have to be thankful for, especially this time of the year.
I punched the "dots" out of Soft Suede Cardstock with the Cupcake Builder Punch, and put a dab of Crystal Effects on each dot so they would look shiny and dimensional... I thought of making dots with the Cupcake Builder Punch, and my friend Jean Fitch thought to add the Crystal Effects.
