I read a research report on the brain and creativity. The researcher found a higher percentage of creativity in people with bipolar and other mental disorders than in the general population. Huh?
I am not bipolar but I do know spending time on creative projects certainly helps keep my sanity. How about you?
Therefore, today for all the inspiring creative ideas on all the great blogs, I say
And especially for Tuesday Throwdown challenge of "grateful" and  Tuesday Morning Sketches

I think my card has that old Hollywood glam style. The cardstock, DP, and sentiment are from SU and the glitter paper from Michael's.
This week at Simon Says Stamp Blog is also a Thanks theme so I will link up there too.


  1. Oooooh, love that glitter paper! Perfect for a "starry" theme. I agree that crafting helps keep me somewhere in the vicinity of sanity. I've never been accused of being completely sane...and I take that as a good thing. LOL

  2. What a pretty and elegant card!! Love the sparkly paper!
    Thanks for joining us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

  3. What a beautiful work of art, Donna! Love the ol' Hollywood glam vibe. Thanks for entering our Gratitude challenge. It's been a pleasure to see your creation.

  8. I myself am bipolar, and the more crafty people I meet, I must say that it does seem there are a greater number of 'crazy' crafty people than 'crazy' non-crafty people ;) I always find those sorts of discussions interesting - is it the mental health issue that assists the creativity? Who knows! Fascinating stuff the human brain :)
    I am in love with all the gold sparkle on your card! So striking. Thanks so much for coming to play at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week :)

  9. Gorgeous card Donna, really striking and I love the glitter.
    Crafting is a must to keep me reasonably sane lol.
