Give Thanks

Good morning everyone and a special welcome to all my lovely friends and  followers. My post today is to launch a new challenge along at Crafting by Designs and our challenge theme this week is Give Thanks. I know they celebrate this time of year a lot more in the USA but we have to admit it is a glorious time when we see all of the wonderful Autumn colours and they have been especially lovely this year in England after our good warm summer.
