Creation Station Blog Hop - Giving Thanks


With Thanksgiving just around the corner, this month's blog hop is appropriately themed, "Giving Thanks". There are so many things in this life I could write down and share with you that I am truly grateful for, but I will save that for another day. Instead I will share with you what I call my "Thankful Tree".


I love trees! I am enthralled by them in home decor items, jewelry, etc. They symbolize so many wonderful things. I especially love them in the fall. Fall is MY season! The colors (yes, my favorite color truly is Chocolate Chip Brown); the weather (oh how I love the slight crispness in the air); the smells (I can't get enough of wood burning furnaces).  This time of year is so ME!

I had an idea in my head about how to turn the tree from the Halloween Scene Thinlets into more than just a spooky tree. I knew it had great potential to show off it's more lively, colorful, fall self! I die cut it using Chocolate Chip card stock and Olive Green card stock. I then took the Tree Builder Punch and punched to my little heart's content of leaves out of Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Crumb Cake and Olive card stock. One by one I adhered them onto the branches of the tree and on the ground. I added a splatter from the Gorgeous Grunge set in the background to give it more life and interest. The saying from the Basket of Wishes set was perfect for this month's theme! How could I not use it, right? I was having too much fun creating this idea in my head onto card stock. I hope you will continue on to see what creativity the rest of the gang has to share with you. Thanks for stopping by! Happy Stamping!
