Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all that celebrates it! Big thanks to you all that has been visiting me tirelessly. I am so grateful to have you to cheer me on. =)

This is a project that I made for the Thankful challenge over at Inspiration Journal. This month's challenge theme is to express your gratitude by making thank you gifts/gift holders, place cards, treat holders, tags or any way that can express your love to friends, family or this beautiful season.

I wrapped the 6" embroidery hoop with strips of torn kraft glassine paper. The flowers are cut using the Tattered Flower Garland die and the sentiment is covered with Rock Candy and Antique Linen Distress Stickles.

Why embroidery hoop? Well, I was into embroidery and cross stitching for a little while and have a couple of them sitting around. I don't like making big things and I liked its size for a wreath, so I gave it a go. Hope you likey! =)

That's all for now. Don't forget to link up your projects here for a chance to win 50 Emporium Dollars to use at the Inspiration Emporium Store! Or you can use discount code wonderland for 10% off your entire purchase at check out. =)

Hope you have a warm and cozy Thanksgiving holiday, my friends. =)
