Sept 2017 Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals September 2017 Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month our theme is “My Favorite Holiday”.  Sit back and enjoy the view while the Pals treat you with projects for the upcoming Autumn and Winter holidays.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Without a doubt, my favorite Holiday is THANKSGIVING!! I just love it:  I love all things about the beauty of the fall season, and I love a holiday whose focus is on giving Thanks to our Creator for all the blessings He has bestowed on us, and that focuses on family and food!  No frantic shopping and gift giving, just a day to enjoy family, food and reflect on all our blessings!

Because of that, I think the sentiment “Gather Together & Give Thanks” perfectly embodies the spirit of Thanksgiving.  The beautiful sunflower in the Painted Harvest stamp set exemplifies the beauty of the season as well.  No wonder that I chose to use this new bundle (Painted Harvest stamp set and the coordinating Leaf Punch) for my project.

Here’s a close-up of that sunflower:

Don’t you just love it?  I propped it up on a few stampin’ dimensionals.  You can see how that little bit of dimensions adds so much to this project.

A little flagged end banner is perfect for the sentiment and a piece of 5/8″  burlap ribbon adds a rustic texture.  The wreath was so simple to make.  I used the little berry stamp from the August Paper Pumpkin kit!
