Thankful Holiday

Happy Thanksgiving! It really does feel like Thanksgiving here in Florida as our temps dropped down into the 40s last night and is in the low 60s today.  It has been so unusually warm that I was beginning to wonder if it would ever feel like fall. My husband had to work today so we had our Thanksgiving celebration together yesterday evening.  We had all of our holiday favorites and enjoyed a wonderful time together.  My list of things to be thankful for would be too long to list but I am especially thankful for getting to know so many of you and being a part of  the paper crafting community. Oh….and for having four straight days off work. Smile

Before I start my post let me just say a big  Woo-Hoo about the specials sales going on at my two favorite stores- Impression Obsession and Ellen Hutson. I’m trying to control myself from going on over and pulling out my credit card and screaming “CHARGE”! Open-mouthed smile  Impression Obsession sale has already begun and you can get the details here.  Ellen’s sale will begin tonight at midnight and you can  click here for details.


I have a fun Christmas scene tag to share with you today using the Memory Box Village House and Impression Obsession Tree die, Fir Trees and a couple birds form the Leafy Wreath

I had made a tag a couple days ago using this sweet Snow Village designer paper and thought I would use it again since it was out on my work table. I thought it would be so cute with the tall house and bare snowy tree.

After assembling the house I painted the roof top and window panes using a tiny brush and straight undiluted  white watercolor paint to create snow. I purposefully made the house a darker brick red so the snow would show up well.  I painted the tree limbs and branches as well as the two crimped fir trees.  I wanted everything to have that cold winter feel.  I applied glossy accents and diamond glitter to the snowy areas but you can’t see the sparkle in the photos.

I couldn’t resist adding touches of evergreen and red decorations to the windows and doors.  I used the fir sprig set for the evergreen decorations by cutting individual little pieces and attaching them with glossy accents.  I used 1/8” punched circles for the red decoration, attached them glossy accents and covered them with red stickles.  I added the multi loop bow and the two birds for the final finishing touch.

Thank you for stopping by.  I wish each of you a wonderful Thanksgiving and a blessed holiday season.

  1. Sitting here waiting for the turkey to cook and your blog post just popped into my inbox! I got to shop at the IO sale right when it first started and have to admit going over my intended limit. I’ve also been looking at Ellen Hutson’s site since yesterday and would love to get some things there, but I know i shouldn’t spend any more. But, I keep looking and drooling anyway.
    Happy Thanksgiving!!!

The house, the bare tree with the snow, and of course my favourite the cardinal. The little details make this tag so dimensional and special. Great use of the village paper. This tag made me smile.
