SHOPPING OUR STASH #277 Gobble 'til you Wobble

Hello crafty friends! We have a new challenge starting today at SHOPPING OUR STASH! With the American Thanksgiving Day holiday fast approaching, the SOS gals challenge you to make either a Thanksgiving Day or a Thank You card or project! Yep, choices! You'd think with that subtitle, I'd have made a Turkey Day card. Nope. A Thank You card it was:

 and the inside:

I won this paper pad and the accompanying tags 3 years ago? 4 years ago? And of course, I'm a hoarder, so I've barely cut into the paper. I used one piece of paper and one tag from the collection. It was rough. After I cut the patterned paper, I thought the card base needed something, so I used an Autumn themed background stamp with Antique Linen Distress Ink on it. I used some ancient string and some star sequins from 'I have no idea', that were screaming at me to be used, so I did. ☺

So now it's your turn. Have some fun and make a Turkey Day or Thank you card or project! Be sure to link up at Shopping Our Stash so we can admire it! For more inspiration, do check out what my teammies, and our Guest Designer, Cornelia, have made for your viewing pleasure. It would be great if you left them some crafty lovin on their blogs! 

Just a reminder: We are looking for Guest Designers! If you wish to be considered for our GD in December, simply leave a "DT" after your name when you link up! It's so easy even a caveman could do it! LOL!
