Happy Thanksgiving

Just wanted to wish everyone a Blessed Thanksgiving. Enjoy your day with family and friends and don't forget to think of those that are alone, residents in nursing homes, the homeless, our men and women who are fighting for our country. Let us be Thankful for everything and everyone. Have a wonderful day.

Fall Hanging Decoration

Hi Everyone,

Gee it seems like forever since I posted something, sorry about that, sometimes life gets so hectic. I've been busy with appointments and we are training Tyson (our puppy), which is going better and better each day, thank goodness.

So, I've been making this cute decoration for my mom and just finished it, so I thought I would post it tonight. The paper towel roll is flattened and I used this leave cardstock from DCWV to cover it. I stamped the leaves using the new Snow Cuties PK-500 on the leaves that I cut out on my Cricut, they are from the Create a Critter cartridge, so cute. I also layered some silk leaves and used some Dazzling Diamond glitter on them. I cut out a turkey, also from Create a Critter, he's so darling. I used some red Smooch on his hat, and did some doodling on him. I then used eyelets to tie the jute through to hang. Then I used ribbon and tied a bow, the ribbon is so cute, it has scarecrows and pumpkins on it. Thanks for stopping by. See you soon ;)
