A is for Abundance

Think back to when the book Simple Abundance first hit the shelves.  I remember it well.  It is always good to revisit the "what's good about this" idea daily to keep your focus from a book that became one of my all-time favorites.  Today's card celebrates Abundance and meets several challenges.  But, best of all, it's a reminder to myself that no matter who or what in life might disappoint you temporarily, each day brings a multitude of blessings to celebrate.  Today, celebrate your blessings as  well!  Make a card that reminds you of your blessings and prop it up in a place where you will see it often.
Challenges:  MFP/Speedy TV Tutorial --Scrap Attack;  MFP/Speedy TV Inspirational -- Rainbows;   Speedy Fox and Friends --the Letter A;   MFP/FOSTV--favorite book, movie, or song;  Speedy TV Simple Salutations 38;  Make It Monday--Anything Goes;   Word Art Wednesday.

What a great idea - I have just made a card for my niece for when things get tough - perhaps I should make one for myself too! Thank you for joining our FOSTV66 challenge and for sharing your lovely card.
