And the winner is...

Diane Purves! She is from the UK! Congratulations Diane. She has won the mystery prizes from the Stampin' Friends October Blog Hop. Next month it could be you! Stampin Friends Blog Hop is the 3rd Thursday of each month.  Each blogger sends a little crafty gift to one lucky winner. Each month you are ask to leave comments on all the blogs you hop to and use the #SF___Hop.  Using random number generators each blogger picks a winner and then out of those names 1 winner is picked again using a random number generator. So next month stop by and Hop with us. But don't forget to leave a comment!
Yesterday my little people were out of school. Good time to take Cadie for her allergy shots. Before leaving the house, we made really quick Halloween treat tags to take to the ladies in the Dr. office and nurses. We only used scraps of paper on my table. It was a fun exercise and I think they came out really cute. It never ceases to surprise me what  can be done with scraps!  We literally made these in about 15 minutes. 

Well, that's all for today. Thanks for stopping by for a look-see. If you like this project you can visit my online store here. This stamp set coordinates with the Cookie cutter punch which can be purchased separately or in a bundle with the Christmas Cookie Cutter stamp set.

Most important 2 words!

I truly believe Thank You are the two most important words in any relationship. I believe that is why Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. A day set aside to just be thankful for all the wonderful blessings in our lives is awesome.
Welcome to the October Stampin' Friends
Thanksgiving/ Thank you Blog Hop!!!!!!
If you are continuing from Kirsteen Gill's blog thank you for continuing. If you just started you can go back to here blog with the previous link. Also again this month each blogger will be giving away a mystery prize- so the more you visit and comment with the #SFOcthop, the more chances you have to win some really awesome free goodies.

Please welcome our guest bloggers this month and check out the inspiring projects they have created to share with you. 

Since the theme of this months Blog Hop is Thanksgiving / Thank you, I wanted to share some items I'm creating for our family Thanksgiving gathering. If everyone is off ( police officers and RN's don't get very many holidays off), there will be at least 12 of us and we always try to invite anyone we know is unable to be with their family, so I plan for 16. I love making place cards and the grand kids seem to really love finding their place at the tables. I have also created napkin rings and treats for each place setting. The gorgeous Petals and Palsies paper and matching stamp set are just perfect for this time of year. Night of Navy, Rich Razzleberry, Canjun Crazy and Delighful Dijon with a copper foil accent is perfect for our table.

The Swirly and Scribbles framelits large circle worked great for a napkin ring. I layered 3 different colors by cutting a slit in each and intertwining them. Love this one!

The grand kids will love the treat bags filled with their favorite treats and a blessing from Cece and Chief or Gigi and Happy. These were made with the kraft bags, scored at 1 inch on each side and folded into a flat bottom bag. I added scraps of DSP, the awesome gold clip with bow and the cutest turkey made with the owl punch and the same framelit design that is on the napkin rings and place cards.
My clubs are doing moving cards this month. I love this simple slider card. The Petals and Paisleys DSP is just perfect for this card. It is so beautiful. When pulled up it slides open to reveal another message. It's made from a 8.5 x 5.5 piece of cardstock. thank you for stopping by today. I hope you will continue on the hop. Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win some free goodies from each of the bloggers. I wish each of you a very blessed Thanksgiving season.  You can click on the next button to visit Twila Davis on this months Stampin' Friends
