It's the beginning of a new month, and that means I get so share some fun projects and beautiful ribbons from the fantastic new November Ribbon Club Assortment. Oooooo....shiny!
The month of November means Thanksgiving Day here in the US, and I do love me some Thanksgiving! Everything about this holiday makes me happy: the weather, the food, the time with family, the colors and fantastic memories of past Thanksgivings. With all these things in mind, I dug into these glamorous Silver and Gold ribbons and worked up a couple of Thanksgiving cards. Now, I know this collection is great for Christmas, but I found that the gold ribbons are fabulous for your Thanksgiving crafts, too. Take a peeky:
I created a pocket on the inside, wrote a little poem for the top half of the card and then stuffed that pocket full as a Thanksgiving turkey with a bunch of holiday goodies.
The second card uses a great digital image from a 1943 magazine cover. (I found this one online, too.)
Of course there is a pocket on the inside of this card as well.
These would be such great hostess gifts, or wonderful surprise packets to send to friends and family who are far away. The cards will be pretty on someone's mantel, and the gifts inside just add to the fun.
This is such a great season, a time to give thanks, express gratitude and enjoy time with the people we love!
Thanks for stopping by!
