Give Thanks

Each year on the fourth Thursday in November, Americans gather for a day of feasting, football and family. While today’s celebrations would probably be unrecognizable to those attending the original 1621 harvest meal, Thanksgiving continues to be a day for Americans to come together

In honor of that "coming together" at Thanksgiving, I created this cute tag using the "Children's Hour" collection  by Graphic 45.
This tag is available in FotoBella's
"2 Cards, 2 Tags" Monthly Membership Kit.

It is one of four projects in the Graphic 45 "Children's Hour" November "2 Tags/2 Cards" Membership Kit available at!

Here are the projects individually:
Wishing you a bountiful harvest

A cute Ohhhh...Autumn card

And a very special interactive card
Sweet November

It's a swivel card!

 Perfect for that special person!

You can pick up your kit at HERE:
And Membership with Starter Bundle HERE:

Giving a personal handmade greeting card 
made by YOU is a great way to say 
"I am so thankful for you!"
Show them you care and get your kit today!

And from all of us to all of you,
a very Happy Thanksgiving!

National Button Day

     Did you know that today is National Button Day? It was founded by the National Button Society in 1938, as a celebration of all who enjoyed collecting and crafting with buttons. I've been collecting buttons longer than I've been scrapping, as I used to be a seamstress, and have a huge collection that also includes jars and boxes of buttons that I've inherited over the years. But that doesn't stop me from buying and collecting new ones, and Bo Bunny Buttons are my favorite! So I created this page using Bo Bunny's Christmas Collage Papers to showcase these festive Buttons, along with some included in the Ephemera.

     I always stitch my buttons, and hand-stitched along the sides, and around the photos of my son when he was just three years old. The doilies were masked with Bo Bunny White Gesso, and the yellow one was done using Prima's Lace Doily #3 Stencil. 

      I popped up the "Holly Jolly" piece from the Noteworthy, after inking the edges with Picket Fence Distress Ink, with the Chipboard flourish peeking out beneath it.

     The edges of the title tag were inked with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink, along with the sides of my page, and finished with a Brad.

     Thanks for looking, and click here for some more buttons from FotoBella!  Happy National Button Day!
