What a great holiday!!!! Stampin' Friends Blog Hop!





Welcome to the Stampin' Friends Thanksgiving Blog HOP!  What a great holiday! A day set aside just to be thankful! If you arrived from Kristeen Gill's Blog, thank you for continuing on to mine.

Each month we are excited to have three talented Guest Hoppers that you should definitely check out.
This month they are: Kim Smith , Wynne Grob  and                           Steph Jandro
I have an awesome project to share with y'all! I created this "book box" for  Momma! She will be turning 81 on the 25th of this month. Her birthday falls on  Thanksgiving every few years, she is definitely my role model! We usually have Thanksgiving at her house, but this year Momma and Happy, her husband, are traveling all the way to NEW YORK CITY! They will be gone for Thanksgiving and her birthday. My plan is for all the family to write messages to her while we are gathered together for Thanksgiving and place them in the box. We will give this to her when she gets home. After, of course, we hear all about the Sandy Patti Concert, Wicked and Lion King. What a birthday!
Isn't this the bomb! The box actually opens like a book, it will fit  regular A2 cards and envelopes. The small cards are 3 x 3, and decorated with extra pieces of Woodland Designer Series paper. You can find a list of materials at the end of this post.


And here is my  card I made for Momma's birthday. It's a gate-fold card with a belly band and half a shutter! I know half! I just haven't worked out the kinks to get the shutter to open up enough to see all the picture. So I just added one instead of two shutters. You can see the pumpkins peeking out the window.Open it all the way and the shutter reveals the rest of the picture.



Loved making this one and plan on continuing to work on the measurements so that it really works as a shutter card. Momma's going to flip! She is a avid card maker and I know she'll love this one. well, ladies, that's the whole pumpkin pie!Hope you enjoyed these projects.
