Jellypark Challenge Number 10 - Give Thanks

It's time for challenge number 10 over at Jellypark friends challenge blog and the theme this time round is Give Thanks.
We would love to see all of your Thanksgiving projects and if you're this side of the pond Thank you projects.

I was so pleased when I saw  the theme as it gives me the perfect opportunity to make a card to say Thank You to some special people.

This post has a few more pictures than usual.

I have created this card to say a huge Thank You to everyone associated with Jellypark. First of all the extremely talented Claire her images got me back into card making after a significant lull and I adore working with them. I feel very honoured to be a part of the design team. 
Thank you to both Claire and Jennifer for giving me a chance to be on the DT, I had only just started out in blogland when I applied for Jellypark and wouldn't have been most peoples choice.
Next a big thank you to Jennifer for looking after us all so well and running the challenge blog so beautifully and teaching me that there are many more flavours of coffee than just a jar of Nescafe :o), Oh and giving me paper envy every time I see her cards.
Last but by no means least the design team, Jennifer,  Ruth, Suzie, Tracey, Lisa and Sara such a lovely, supportive group of talented and crafty ladies. We have some cracking group conversations and my life is enriched so much as a result.
Anyway this one's for you ladies xxxxxxxxxxxx
p.s meant to say thank you to promarker for bringing out the fine nibs, I couldn't have coloured the tiny images without them.
Happy Crafting.
