Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! Today, Glen and I are off to visit my folks for a few days and we are really looking forward to catching up, laughing, and eating too much!

But before I head off, I wanted to share these two tags that I made for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! This is the first time I've had a chance to participate (why the week of Thanksgiving felt like the right time to start is beyond me!!) and I can't wait to see all of the rest of the gorgeous projects out there!
This month's challenge was to design a "holiday tag or two" and I'm excited to share these two jumbo tags with you! This first tag is a more traditional/vintage feeling tag using the Tree Trimming Trio set, distress inks, and some yummy lace and scrunchy ribbon. The card is finished off with a gold embossed sentiment and a cute jingle bell.

This next card has a more modern feel again featuring the big tree from the set, a glitter border, silver embossed sentiment and star. The tag is finished with a fun, tinsel hanger for extra sparkle!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today! I wish you and yours a very special Thanksgiving and hope you all have an abundance of love and joy to be thankful for today!

Supplies: Stamps - Tree Trimming Trio (PTI), Card Stock - Vintage Cream (PTI), Tags (my stash), Ink - Garden Green, Chocolate Chip (SU!), Versamark, Silver/Gold Embossing Powder (SU!), Glue Pen (Martha Stewart), Glitter (PTI), DP - Jovial Collection (Basic Gray), Snowflakes (Anna Griffin), Lace/Twine/Jingle Bell (Crafta), Ribbon (Etsy), Tinsel (Kate's Paperie)
