MLS Thanksgiving Tag & WINNER!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

This is the time of year to which I list all the things I am thankful for... it's a looooooooong list!!! One of those things is the gift of creating, I love it! I have been so very blessed through this craft and recognize that!!!

Another thing I am thankful for are the teachers at my girls' school! They are amazing and their ability to pour God's love into those little children is a gift. To say thank you for all that they do I picked up a few loaves of bread {Great Harvest Bread Company} and made these little tags to go with a yummy french toast recipe! The tags were SO stinking easy {I made 16 in less than an hour} and they turned out pretty cute!
I used the B sides from My Little Shoebox's PLAYTIME and PRETTY LITTLE THINGS collections along with a few punches, random paper clips, and random pieces of green ribbon. With the help of a little Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Thermoweb Zots... VIOLIA!!!

And now for the WINNER from Monday's blog hop... drum roll please:

Happy Thanksgiving to all and Creative Cheers!!!

Greetings! Today a few of us are featuring the new super cute line from My Little Shoebox called WINTER WONDERLAND!!! You should be joining me from the ever-so-talented KEELY YOWLER's blog, isn't her card SNOW fantastic?!?!?! If I am your first stop I suggest you start HERE to make sure you don't miss our on all the scrappy holiday cheer!

It was so very hard to choose which paper to start with since they are all full of bright fun winter colors. I ultimately had to do the eenie-meanie-mynee-mip-catch-the-Winter-Wonderland-by-the-paper-tip!!!

So I started with the Winter Folly paper and then turned to my stash of minis. I am a big fan of the minis, they provide such inspiration when thinking out of the box and the APPLES minis were just meant to be a Christmas tree for the center of this card. With the help of a little Flower Soft and Glossy Accents the rest of the card just came together!
