Paper Hoarders DT Offering - Being Thankful!

For what and/or whom am I thankful?  Well, it goes without saying that I’m thankful for my family, my community, and my country.  From a Paper Hoarders point of view, I’m thankful for being in the company of wonderful crafters who take time to smell the roses!

For the Paper Hoarder Design Team #1 assignment by our craft guru, Tanya, we were to think about what we were thankful for and design a project for this.  The amazing Tanya, our fearless leader, has all the DT projects posted on her blog, located at

Here’s what Mama LoveBug came up with:
"Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses." ....
Alphonse Karr

I used the following things:
* PK stamp of happy rose that I colored with watercolor pencils and glitzzed
* Spellbinders die cuts and 2" SU circles
* a googled sentiment, offset with twine and brad
* several layers of paper – autumn colors, plain and patterned
* some autumn embellishments such as leaves, bling, and rose
* threaded ribbon at the top and bottom of my base layer
* corner chomper
* and lots of thankful love

Thanks for stopping by and always be  “thankful for” someone – it makes our time on earth more meaningful!  Cyberhugs………….Mama LoveBug
