                            Petite Treats Bundle         Trimmings & Tags Bundle                                        

Here's a little something I made up in a hurry.   I don't have the felt ornaments yet but will soon.    I think it will increase the cute level 100%!

Tea poem

I printed up a little poem and then stamped the mug from Scentsational Season.  To make sure the poem was legible, I stamped the image first on a scrap piece of paper to remove some of the ink and then stamped over the poem.  Using the Holiday Collection framelits I cut out the mug, so quick!   I punched some holes and ran the Gumball Green satin stitched ribbon through the handle and tied a bow.   I took some poetic license and changed the poem just a little so it would fit on the mug.  The font is Tekton Pro 10.  You can see how the Petite Treats bundle can really help you make up some quick, easy and of course cute gifts.  So, go to my online store and order this sweet bundle of cuteness!

Just stopping by to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Wait, here's someone else who wants to send their best wishes.  

Turkey in a box

Who can it be?  Well,  have you heard of turkey in a bag?   Well. I think this is a turkey in a box or maybe a turkey on a box!

Turkey on a box

It just would not feel like Thanksgiving if we did not make this little turkey.   He has been a part of our Thanksgiving for many years.  He has changed over the years and this is probably the easiest version of the turkey we have made.   I made these little boxes to house Mr Turkey and I think he likes it!   

Thank you for stopping by and thank you for your continued friendship and support!
