Give Thanks at BBTB2!

Happy Monday everyone and I can honestly say I have to Give Thanks to the Bitten By The Bug 2 Team for allowing me to be on such a wonderful Design Team with the Best Design Team Sisters ever!  This week is Donna's turn to pick our challenge and she picked the Saying "Give Thanks" from the Thanksgiving Cartridge and since I don't have that one I chose to use Doodlecharms.  And as you can see I had to make another one of my fabulous Sweater Pumpkins! Can you tell I just LOVE these! I sure hope you all aren't sick of seeing these little beauties, I just can't get enough of them but I sure hope I don't scare you all away thinking that's all I know how to do, LOL! And remember I am not the original creator of these little gems Hummadeedledee Blog is the Genius and I have to say it again, Thank You for such a fun and unique Re-Cycled work of art you created and also the original place I seen these was at http://612riverside.blogspot.com/! And Yes I am doing a picture tutorial that I will be posting this week (before Thanksgiving, lol) I'm waiting on a e-mail from the original gal who thought of these, I want to give credit where credit is due!

Now back to the challenge....................................
I made a tag for my Pumpkin because like I said before, these are for Family and also McCades Teachers this year for a little Thanksgiving gift. Like I said before, I used the Doodlecharms cart for the Leaf and Acorn, I welded it together and made a card/tag, Thanks was from Gypsy Wandering and Give was from Winter Woodland (I was also working on Xmas cards so that's how WW got in there, lol) I did some embossing, inking and some faux stitching also and I kept thinking it looked kinda bare and needed something so that's how the Garden Twine bow and Teeny Tiny Acorns got added! The embellishments on the pumpkin are just some more Garden Twine, Silk Leaves, Tea Dyed Ball Fringe Ribbon, a Pine cone and some more Acorns found on my walks in the woods.
  
I just love Fall, I love to go for walks in the woods here in KY. I don't go to often in the summer because it's just to hot and humid and to be honest, the bugs here just Love me and I wind up getting eaten up even if I spray myself down with bug spray and wear long pants and long sleeve shirts and boots, I still get something, lol! Well I always bring a little bag with me because I ALWAYS find something! In the picture you can see alot of the goodies I find, Pine cones, Lots of Acorns (all different sizes) Buckeyes, Little Gourds, Odd shaped Rocks (the one on the left side of the pumpkin with the ruff surface is a perfect round rock! Not sure if it's a Geode or not, I don't want to break it open!) And last but not least, Birds Nests! I have quite a collection of these and these are only two of them. I only pick them up if they are on the ground and have fallen out of the trees. The one next to the round rock has Horse Hair on the inside of it perfectly swirled around in there. It's a pretty small nest and I think it's a Hummingbirds nest because it's so small and pretty tightly done!

 Well hope you like it and remember if you don't have the Thanksgiving cart use anything that has a Thanks on it, there is always a use for a Thank You Card, especially with the Holidays coming! And don't forget to drop by BBTB2 and check out what all the Gals have made to show how Thankful they all are. Hope to see you all at the challenge and remember you might just win that cute Winner's Blinkie if your entry wins the challenge and you can display it on your blog, along with bragging rights of course, lol! Have a great week and I'll be seeing you sometime this week with my Sweater Pumpkin Tutorial.  And I just want to say that I want to Give Thanks to all of you that stop by my blog each week and leave such wonderful comments, Thank You to each and everyone of You!

((Hugs)) and Take Care, Theresa
