Thanks Bottle Tag/Card

Good Morning!

I hope you are having a good week!  We have been invited to share Thanksgiving with our wonderful neighbors.  I was taught never to go to a party/dinner at someone's house without bringing a hostess gift.  We are bringing wine (and some pies too).

Here is my tag/card I got it from the Silhouette Store.

Isn't it cute?  Surprise!  It opens as a card!

Here is a close-up.

I hope that my neighbors will enjoy the wine that we choose and this tag/card.

I am entering this project into the following challenges:

Funny Cornucopia

Good Morning,

Have you ever had a day where nothing you did went right?  That is how my day was yesterday.  My embossing machine didn't want to emboss, I looked at a pop box card that I made last week and decided it was crap...sigh...

Here is a digital stamp from The Paper Shelter that I purchased in 2013 and just now got around to coloring!  The stamp is called Funny Cornucopia.  We are going to our neighbors house for Thanksgiving, I think I will give this to my 10 yr. old neighbor Megan.

I was searching through my embellishments for something to put on this card and I found this cute knife and fork from Tim Holtz, I think they go very well!

Here is the inside of the card:

International Art & Soul Challenge #21

Good Morning Friends and Welcome Visitors,

Today's challenge over at International Art & Soul is Challenge #21 Autumn Colors.

As most of you know, I love this time of year, time to "gather in". and count our blessings.  Do you ever think about how blessed we are?  I think about it a lot.  Sometimes I get overwhelmed by how much I have and how little others have.  I wonder how it was decided that I would be born here where there is so many opportunities.  When I broke my ankles I thought a lot about how lucky I was to have top notch hospital care and top notch aftercare.  Even though I have Meniere's disease, I get to have it in a nice cozy bed surrounded by comfort.  So I made this card for the challenge, it is called Bountiful Blessings.

Here is the inside.

Here is the recipe for this card:

Digital Stamp - DZ Doodles Digital Stamps
Sentiments - from favorite stamp set

Veteran's Day

Good Morning,

Tomorrow is Veteran's day.  This is a special day of remembrance for me.  I honor the memory of my Uncle Martin who died in the Korean War.  He was killed on the March 1, 1951.  I was born in 1957 so I never knew him except for the stories that were told to me that has kept him alive in my heart.

I made a card.  I know it is nothing compared to the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Country but it is all I can do.

I hope that you will take a few minutes out of your day tomorrow to remember those that fought and died to keep us free.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
