There's always something to be thankful for.....

There really is. Always. If you're alive and reading this, you have something to be thankful for. Sometimes it really is that simple! It's been a WEEK, but I'm still alive and kickin, so it's all good. :o)

So the freebie today is a card template. Something different. It started last week because both Kristine and Bunny had some VERY rude people contact them about their blogs. How many times does it need to be said that you (meaning people in general, not YOU specifically dear sweet reader :oP) get freebies because people are kind and generous. You aren't owed them. And you for damn sure have no right to dictate to someone what they put on their own blog. Let's get real here. There was a thread over in DST recently, that Australian was going to ban Santa's from saying "Ho, Ho, Ho". Seriously? PC terms are running rampant. Just because you take offense to something, doesn't give you the right to spout off on it, or demand that Santa no longer say Ho ho ho, get a life! If you don't like what someone says on a blog, LEAVE! Or go buy a sense of humor. Sheesh!

Ok, that was a hell of a ramble. But the audacity that people have sometimes really amazes me.

Now, back to being thankful :o) What are you thankful for? I'm going to whip up a LO today about some of the things that I'm thankful for, hopefully anyway. Might get pushed off til next week. So what am I thankful for? Here's a quick list (in no particular order):
To the troops over seas who give up so much to do their duty and protect all of us here at home in the good ole US of A :o) (you know I had to send to love to all my west point buddies!)
Amazing friends who stand by me through thick and thin
A wonderful loving family
My amazing and sweet fiancee
My ridiculously comical dog, who is also a top notch cuddler
KimB! For giving such an amazing opportunity
All the people I've met online,through blogs/digi-scrap forums who inspire me constantly

I could go on, I'd be here all day and don't want to bore you. So here is the card I whipped up for people out there like Kim and Bunny and Kristine, who take a lickin and keep on tickin :o)

And here's the template. Use it today to thank a designer who's freebies you just LOVE. :o)

Have a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Hi Col!
We all should definately take more time out to thank all of talented designers out there.... and just be 'grateful' for things in life period! Thanks for hosting such a great blog and taking the time to 'get to know us' as we 'get to know you' too! Have a great Turkey-Day!

OMG girl- you making me choke up here!!! You have such a way of puting things! For me- let me tell you - I am soo soo thankful to YOU and the whole CT team - I swear I couldn't have asked for a better team that have the hugest hearts as well as being people I regard as FRIENDS! I'm thankful for finding DSO- because without the AWESOME support I have had from Bunny and meeting my fellow designers like Kristine- I wouldn't be HALF the designer I am now nor have a 'group' that I would 'kill' for! Love you lots chick and I hope you stuff your face now with lots of turkey- LOL
Gobble. gobble, gobble- hee hee
MWAH for the card girl! It's beautiful!
