Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Must be Tuesday!!! Thankful Wishes

The wonderfully talented Jeni  is our hostess this week for the Sassy Cheryl;'s Challenge and she has chosen, Thankful as the theme.  Here is my card:

I absolutely fell in love with this, Christmas Candy Cane Girl, last week when I saw it and knew that no matter what the theme this week I was going to use it.  Thanks for not choosing a snowman theme Jeni LOL!!!  I tried to keep the vintage feel of this with the colors and tone.

I got myself an early Birthday and Christmas present.  I have been wanting a Cricut Expression for a long time but when I went down to craft with Peggy a couple of weeks ago, has it been that long already?,  I made her show me what it could do with one, and I was sold.  What I love is that I bought the software so I don't have to buy all the cartridges, which would have put it out of my budget.  I have tried to find the Tim Holtz bird cage die  here in Omaha but it was never available when I went so I searched and found a SVG file with this bird cage and the cool thing is that I could re-size it to fit my card.   I also cut the I Love You sentiment with the expression.   I added handmade roses instead of a bird.

The reason I chose an I Love You sentiment is because I am sooo very thankful for my familiy, friends, DT family, and all of my blog followers who make me feel special,  and wanted to say Thank you and I Love you all. 

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT projects on the Challenge blog and you have to check out Sassy Cheryl's new images, she has some super adorable new images.
