November Note-Card Party: With a Grateful Heart

Great and glorious are your works, O Lord!

With a heart of THANKSGIVING, my soul has been singing this of late, and my spirit is raised to praise as I’ve been driving about this month gasping at the beautiful technicolor show the Autumn trees have been exhibiting.  Oh yes – I’ve been busy with my camera – and my new online toy:  PicMonkey!

About a month ago I was introduced to this little online program and learned how to use the digital graphics tool – I’ve not looked back!  There seems no end to where I can go with all the special effects and text fonts and what-alls that turn my budget Sony Cyber-Shots into works of art!  I can’t stop!  Just one more picture before I run the vacuum . . . please??

So, here are my selections for our November Note-Card Party this month:

  3. Such beautiful pictures & greetings. What a wonderful idea to take a picture of your home & add the sentiment. Thank you for the inspiration!

  7. Hello Kathryn
    Your note cards theme of “with a grateful heart” is beautiful.
    The images and your tweaking are great – I love Pic Monkey too!
    Thanksgiving is such a meaningful celebration – sadly we don’t have it in our country.
    I think I might just do our own little Thanksgiving celebration on the 28th! It’s Spring over here so my decoration will be totally different!!
    Enjoy yours
