DDD ~ Give Thanks ♥

Hello friends!

It's the 15th of the month,
the day the Divas and Dazzlers from the DDD 'duel' :)
Our hostesses for this month's duel are Carol for the Divas
and Shelly for the Dazzlers ~
chosing a most wonderful theme of "Give Thanks".

My card today is using the image/papers and embellishments from
the rich, vivid and sparkly kit sent to us from Carol.
The only thing I used of my own was cardstock and glue!
Naturally, when thinking of a card design,
I just had to use some sparkle as Carol's kit just glitzed and glammed,
her signature touch!
She also sent us two images to chose from,
and I chose to use the praying little boy with his bear.
 The image reminded me so much of my son,
a faith-filled little man of God.
He makes my heart beam with pride when I hear him every day
telling me a story of how he prayed
or was able to be a witness to a friend in need.
He inspires me daily!
Without further adieu, my CAS card .......

and the inside of my card:

Be sure to stop in and see what the rest of the Divas have made
 with this same image/paper kit!
And what the Dazzler's have created with their "Give Thanks" kit ...
you can find them all in my sidebar ► 
Thank you, Carol and Shelly -
I am very grateful ♥

Thanks for stopping by today :)
Big hugs, bigger blessings!
