Today, I have a quick project to share... as well as a few Thankful Thursday thoughts.
A Quick Housewarming Gift
So, we had a family move in to a house on our cul-de-sac on Tuesday. This is MEGA news in our neighborhood -- seriously MEGA!
Why, you ask? Well, there are four houses, and the families in three of those houses have lived in their respective houses for 30+ years each. Seriously! And, yep, we're one of those families, living in our place for almost 31 years.
An event of this magnitude calls for seriously good treats. So, I went to Gigi's and did a quick wrapping project, which included making a gift tag for the box.
- Tying some SU crumb cake tulle ribbon around the box.
- Made a quick tag: cut an oval form SU crumb cake, punched a hole in the top with an EK punch, pulled a piece of SU linen thread through the hole; inked the tag's edges with some Distress Ink picked raspberry, stamped a sentiment from the Winnie & Walter big bold Christmas set on two strips in DI black soot, attached a vellum house (from some a big vellum home-sayings sheet, gifted from a friend) and a few stash sequins with Ranger multi medium matte.
I'm going to link this up for the Simon Says Gift It Challenge.
Fall begins today! Sooo many wonderful things come with the fall season, including the start of a new television season. A new TV season brings the anticipated return of favorite shows and the promise of new ones -- two things for which I am thankful. But, why are there so many good things on at the same time on Thursday and Sunday evenings. LOL Thank goodness for DVRs!
Words 2 Craft By. In addition to a Guest Designer opportunity for the winning entry, there are MFT gift certificates up for grabs to a randomly chosen participant and a randomly chosen follower. We'd love for you to stop by and play along.
Have a nice Friday and a wonderful weekend!
