Give Thanks Blog Hop Nov. 19th & 18th




Good morning, Thank you so much for hopping along with us.  Thanksgiving already!!!  Where did the year go??? So I hop that you have been to all the stops and have enjoyed all the wonderful projects.  If you arrived here from 9. Paula Quick Driver - http://www.scrapyourworld1.blogspot.com/, then you are in the right place.  If not you will want to start at the beginning with Denise Purdy Lewis - http://vindeeloosthisnthat.blogspot.com/

Well, here we are Thanksgiving already!!  This year has just flown by.... So for this hop we were asked to create something with a Thanksgiving theme.  I decided I wanted to make something that I would be able to change around and leave up after the holiday.  So I came up with an idea to create a Thanksgiving Tree. 









 Now my Tree is more of an arrangement, but I really like how it turned out. I simply punched out some pumpkins and circles and then stamped some sentiments using the All Around Sentiments Stamp set from joyslife.com . If you are interested in see just what kind of stamps Joy has to offer click hewww.joyslife.comre. for the base of the arrangement I used a glass jar and filled it with some sand to weigh it down. Then I wrapped some straw ribbon around the rim and added a flower to it. Really simple and fast.  I figure after Thanksgiving I can just remove the sentiments and change out the ribbon and use it as a center piece for my kitchen table. So there you have it. I really hope you have enjoyed this hop and all the wonderful creations. I am your last stop, so Thank you so very much for stopping by, please leave me a comment, I love to read what others think about my work. Have a great weekend and be safe.


HUGS,
Martha ;)

  1. I love it! We always had the Christmas Tree and an Easter Tree. I love the idea of having a Thanksgiving Tree. You could also have family members hang "ornaments" that say what they are thankful for!
