Challenge #20: Giving Thanks

***Psst: You still have a time to apply for our Design Team!***
See this post for more information!

Applications are due by Nov. 30th!


Hello Users!

I can't believe it is already near the end of November! Where did fall go?

This week, in honor of our Thanksgiving holiday, please make a project that has to do with Giving Thanks.

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday 2 Dec. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE020 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here is a little inspiration to get you started:

Heather has a little addiction to card kits. Shhh...don't tell anyone. ;) We are so glad she dug into one to create this beauty! Such pretty fall colors!

Jane used this darling digi she downloaded over a year ago and 'lost' on the computer. And the paper? She bought 10 sheets and cut into her very LAST one just for us! Oh Jane, we are so thankful because this is so cute!

Nancy dusted off the heat gun and embossing powder for this one! She also 'almost' used up the ribbon, which was re-purposed from a cupcake box! {And she confessed the ribbon was yummier than the cupcake was. Spoken like a true hoarder! Tee Hee}

Sonya finally inked up this stamp, which was a gift from a friend! What a fabulous bike stamp and the colors she used are so soft and pretty...takes me back to spring!

Siobhan used her hoarded washi paper tape she bought in Japan last year. {I won't admit just how many rolls I have stashed away (42) and how many cards I have made thus far with it (2).} Confessions aside, it was fun to use and I am glad I tore into it! ;)

Dinah, our scrapbooker extraordinaire, has a hidden talent! Look at this darling card! And it is hand-stitched! We are 'grateful' she was taken out of her comfort zone for this one!

France used 100% hoarded papers for this amazing tag! The leaves are hand cut. Gorgeous! We are so 'thankful' she dug deep into her stash to create this beauty!

Haven heated up her oven for this one! That Girl Scout emblem is from an old candy mold! Once cooled, she colored it up with hardly used embossing powder and chalks. She finished it off with hoarded flowers and a brad. What an awesome thank you card!

And, our lovely guest designer, Carol, made this gorgeous creation! The flower decoupage has been sitting in her stash for ages and the backing paper...a magazine freebie! She was saving it for the perfect card and we are thankful she used it for us!

We can't wait to see what you create! Now go Use It!!
