Theme Thursday - Santa


First of all, I'd like to wish all of my American friends a very Happy Thanksgiving. I hope that it is filled with family and warmth. I'm truly blessed to have all of you in my life.
This is a microscope slide card that I made for my DH David. We had stumbled across an album that his Mom had made for him before she passed away and in it were the most delightful photos of Christmases with his brother and sister. David had and still has a passion for dressing whether it be a suit and tie or a cowboy hat and holster and this is very evident in the pictures. This is my entry for the Theme Thursday Challenge this week.

Heather, how very special! I love the pictures of your dh with Santa and the lower one with his siblings. Your beautiful work is always tops on my list to check out each day. Thank you for the Thanksgiving Day greetings. Of course, as my mother used to say, every day should be a thanksgiving day.
