A few things to share!

I have always been of the attitude that any time you attend a function at someone's house you should always take along a little hostess gift to say thank you! Well, our Thanksgiving hostess happens to be as big of a chocolate fiend as I am so it only makes sense to offer her the goods! ;) Now in my opinion, chocolate happens to be a wonderful gift (and not only because you can sneak a piece or two before putting everything all together!). The only thing better than chocolate is a cute container to hold all of that goodness! So, this is what our Thanksgiving hostess received yesterday:
I paper pieced the scarecrow's overalls on and sponged the sun, sky and grass on around him! I added the sun using a post it note, a circle punch and masking it! The light streak on the photo is not actually on the card! A fun hostess gift! : )

I have a couple of things to share today and I meant to post this all day long yesterday, but the day just kept getting away from me! I also made a second Christmas stocking (this one is for my mom) using Lauren's cute template! I love this color combo! It is so 'her'! I went back and fourth about whether to put 'mom' on it or her name and then her name won because I rummaged up this cute chipboard 'C'! I am pretty excited because I am on a mission to get her Christmas box sent out early this year! Now to figure out what to stuff it with...! : )

Stamps: Lily and Billy's Winter set
Paper: SU! Baja Breeze, Blue Bayou (retired), Whisper White and Pink Pirouette
Ink: SU! Rose Red and Ballet Blue
Extras: Gold Stickles, Round spiral punch, Sparkle gem, White Gel pen and white feather boa


We have a whole other Thanksgiving to go to this evening and I have a ton of things to try to get accomplished around the house today! I hope that you have a wonderful day! : ) Be back soon!

Glad your Thanksgiving was nice! I have a gigantic extended family but we rarely all get together. Hubby's family is a decent size too but again, rarely all together. This year, it was just the three (or four) of us. It was nice.

Love your projects too! Super cute!! Oh, I tagged you :)

OK, my mouth dropped open when I saw the overalls, and THEN I saw the Christmas stocking! I'm on CUTE overload! I will seriously take that stocking off your hands for you, because you already have it personalized for ME!! Oh my goodness, AnnMarie, this is all fantastic!! GREAT job! And, I agree, chocolate is the PERFECT gift . . . anytime!

Hey! I could have sworn I've been to this blog before but after checking through some of the post I realized it's new to me.
Anyways, I'm definitely delighted I found it and I'll be book-marking
