Giving Thanks at Thanksgiving Time

I could have made a nice card this week with my cuts, but in a moment of creativeness, I thought to decorate my outdoor pumpkin for Thanksgiving.   Using the Cricut Celebrate with Flourish, Autumn Celebrations, and the Lovely Floral cartridges, this project came together pretty easily.  Of course I like to add ink and Stickles on almost anything. The Love, Family, and Friends are cut outs from patterned paper. I pop dotted all the cuts so that in total it is about 1" off the page.  It is displayed on my out door entry table.  I hope you enjoy my project and my blog entries.

First - I was chosen as the weekly Guest Designer at My Sheri Crafts.  Yahoo, I am thrilled.  The theme is "#146 - It's Turkey Time" - Add a Turkey to your card/project (11/8/14 - 11/21/14).  I love all the fall colors and just came back from a trip to the east coast to see the fall foliage.  In the mountains there were trees full of color as far as I could see. There is always great participation in Sheri's challenges, so come and join.  Gobble, Gobble!

Second - Caroline from is our BBTB2 hostess this week (starting 11/10/14), and she wants us to use a Cricut pumpkin in our projects.   Join us at BBTB2 to link up your pumpkin card, layout, or project!  Happy Fall!
