Give Thanks

Hi there crafty peeps!  This week at Craft Hoarders Anonymous, we are joining forces with My Artistic Adventures Challenge Blog for a blog hop.  So without further ado here we go!

Challenge #19 For all that You do, Thank You!
Create a "thank you" gift for this challenge. It can be a Thanksgiving hostess gift or a simple thank you card. It can be a "thanks for helping me out of a jam" present, or a "thanks for being you" scrapbook layout. As long as your project says, "THANKS," enter the challenge! We want to see you de-hoard some of your stash and say thanks to someone! (Your project does not have to be Thanksgiving-themed!)

Our prize sponsor for this challenge is none other than the wonderfully talented Heather Hudson:


Heather lives in Michigan with her two teenage sons, hubby, and kitties. She works full time as a RN with Ventilated young adults, and enjoys volunteering with her two son's Boy Scout Troop and Tennis Team. She loves to create digital collage sheets in the Vintage, Victorian, and Shabby Chic Style. She will show you blogging tips, paper crafting tutorials, and how to use her digital collage sheets on her Youtube channel. Heather hosts her own challenge on her blog and designs for Really Reasonable Ribbon, Gecko Galz, and the Creative Cutting Challenge.

I created this warm fall themed thank you card for the current challenge.  The papers, wood veneer
coffee cup, stamps, and sequins are all from the October card kit from Simon Says Stamp.  The leaves in the background are cut and embossed with the Tattered Leaves die and embossing folder by Tim Holtz.  The Ribbon is from Pretty Pink Posh.  The tag is from Heather Hudson's Vintage Thanksgiving Digital sheet. 

Now head over to the other DT members blogs and see their wonderful creations!

My favorite parts are the text background and the way you did the steam! Good job!

I love the mix of pattern papers here. Of course though the steaming cup just makes me smile. Can't ever resist one of those!
