Thanksgiving Blog Hop November 15, 2011

Welcome to the "Thanksgiving" Blog Hop!!

Thanksgiving Hop

We're so happy you could join us for this super-fun hop showcasing cards, layouts and projects that feature everything to be thankful for!! You'll find an array of ideas throughout the hop -- We hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!!

If you've hopped over from Tami, then you are in the right place!! If you've just popped in to visit my blog or are reading this via email and you'd like to join our Thanksgiving FUN, then please visit Lynda to start at the beginning of this hop!! This is a TWO-DAY hop, so be sure to catch both days for maximum ideas (you'll find the entire line-up below my post)!!

For the hop today, I've created a card for my granddaughter, Lily, her very first Thanksgiving!!


  • Loyal followers and new followers alike, do not fear as I have not lost A Child's Year Cricut cartridge. I know it was feeling left out with me cutting the cards with the papercutter and making projects that were not cards - but VIOLA it has been used cutting my card at 5-inches. ** Side note, I do love A Child's Year Cricut cartridge card as there is a wide range and makes life interesting and easy. And see, you thought I had lost it! HA!
  • I then embossed my card background using my Cuttlebug and "Stylized Flowers".
  • The turkey and gobble gobble were cut using Create a Critter Cricut cartridge with the turkey being cut at 3.75 inches and the "gobble gobble" cut at 1-inch and of course we all know "gobble gobble" means Happy First Thanksgiving Lily!
  • I then glued and glue dot my turkey together but using my Xyron with the smaller pieces. I still love keeping that by my side and just keep inserting any little piece that will fit in there not only do I not lose my piecing but it sure makes gluing easier!

Thank you again for checking out my project... Now hop on over to INSERT LINK TO NEXT BLOG ON THE LIST HERE (you will need to update this a day or two before the actual hop)
