Thank You for being the reason I smile - FFFC #152 'Thankful'

Hello.  Happy Friday!

We're kicking off a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  The lovely Lozzy is our hostess for this challenge and the theme is 'Thankful.'  We have two sponsors and they are Sweet Lilac Flowers and Fresh Brewed Designs.  To get complete details on the challenge, the prize being offered and how you can join in the fun, visit the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog.  Check out also the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.

Here's my own DT card for the challenge.

And yes, this really is a thank you card.  It's an easel card and I've placed the thank you sentiment on the bottom portion of the card.

Having a closer look at the image being featured.

This is called Tiny Townie Sally and Her Snail, a Stamping Bella image.  Isn't she just oh-so-adorable?  I think she's my favorite Stamping Bella far.
