Today is the 15th of November! YAY! That means it's the day when the Dueling Darlings are posting this month's creations.

This month the hostess of the Dazzlers is Michelle. She sent us the most awesome kits of paper-crafting fun! And a bit of a twist to the challenge, too. As we created our cards, we were asked to think about someone you are thankful for. In this season of Thanksgiving (we're just a little over a week away from the holiday) it is easy - and enjoyable - to think of those individuals for whom we are thankful. I'm not sure I can name just one!

1. My husband - He's my rock! He's the love of my life! He's my friend!

2. My children - They bring such joy to my life as well as laughter (and a few tears over the years, too). They are the icing on the cake! Life just wouldn't be the same without them!

3. My parents and my sister - They have helped me so often in my life and have always loved me (unconditionally)!

4. My friends - There are so many of them! Some in real life, some online friends! They bring so much joy to my life!

I could go on and on, but will stop there, before I get all teary-eyed and can't complete this post.

Now, on to the card I created:

Isn't Michelle's kit awesome!?!?!

Here are a couple of pictures to show some of the dimensional aspects of my card:
