October Stampin' Friends Blog Hop Give Thanks!

Good Morning and welcome to the October 2017 Stampin' Friends Blog Hop! Each of us is featuring cards and 3-D projects with a Thanksgiving or Thank You theme. If you just started the Hop be sure to keep going. You will find some amazing talent in this group. If you came from Kathie's blog, thank you for continuing. If you have visited my blog with any regularity, you know I love Thanksgiving! It is one of my favorite holidays. I love the colors, the decor, and
time with the family. It also doesn't seem as stressful as some other holidays.
So I often stick to simpler ideas during this time. This card uses one of my favorite sketches. It's simple and can be changed to look very different using the same layers.
The little wrapped candies I have made for each place setting at our Thanksgiving table.  Here is the card up close.
I used the Painted Autumn DSP which is still on sale until the end of October. This is the same card project I recently shared at the ESL class I taught. Another habit I have is leaving extra stuff on my desk. The two Soft Suede leaves are from this month's Paper Pumpkin! The piece of Burlap was literally a scrap laying on my table. Love it!
Here is a closer look at the candy wrappers. There are two different styles. Again using scraps on my desk, the one on the far left is a 2 x 6" piece of DSP scored at 3/4" from one end. I laid a Ghirardelli chocolate at the score and wrapped it up and adhered it with Fast Fuse on the 3/4" flap. The leaf branch on it is also a left over from Paper Pumpkin this month. There is a piece of copper trim tied around the top and the saying from the Painted Harvest Stamp set. The other two were made with a 4 x 4 piece of DSP. I used the envelope punch board and scored it at 2" on all four sides. Folded it around the chocolate square and adhered with a glue dot. Added some ribbon and a tag (left over from another project) and there you go! These are for the adults. The kids are getting pumpkin cookies I think, not Ghirardelli chocolate! There you go-easy! I hope you liked these and they might inspire you to create a cute table favor for your next family dinner. We can never be too thankful and we always have something to be thankful for! I would really appreciate a comment to let me know you were here and tell me something you have to be thankful for this year. Another thanks for joining us on the hop. See you again soon. Be Blessed. Don't forget to comment for your chance to win the great giveaway.
            Love stamping in Dixie,
