Card Makin Mama's are Giving Thanks

This week at the Card Makin Mama's we would like to see your Thank you, Thanksgiving, Give thanks cards.  I kept mine very simple this week... A few reasons... Im way behind on my crafting and I liked the idea of white space.   Often I forget how nice it is to have a simple card.   What do you think of this one?   I used my gelly roller metalic in the Cougar to create the vellum butterfly, it cut perfectly.  I tell you I love this machine more and more every time I use it.  It just appears to know the right thing to do!   

Oh what else... I have finally started using Picassa Albums.  If I had known it was that easy to store your photos online and then upload to blogs, I would of done it sooner.  Ive even just purchased an ipad app that will allow me to use the ipad camera and upload straight to picassa.   I did fail to check if the app allowed editing though... hmmm.  stay tuned for that one.

So this week we are sponsored by Some Odd Girl, have you checked out their blog!!

So.. how are you going to be inspired to give thanks with this challenge?  Be sure to head on over to the Card Makin Mama's challenge blog and link up your creations so we can all see.

I am going to contribute this card to the Card Drive being held over at the If the Shoe fits challenge blog.  Please go over and read, and participate if at all possible.   You have all month to participate in that drive.
Im also playing in the Aud Sentiments challenge of Give Thanks
