Giving Thanks To All Of You

Pinque Peacock
 
      Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving to you all ! I realize that my friends from other countries may not be familiar with this American holiday but those of us here in the U.S. sure do love this holiday. It is suppose to be a day of being thankful. You see when our ancestors settled here they had no idea of how many hardships they would face in this new land. If it hadn't been for the Native Americans they would never have survived the harsh winters we sometime have in the northeast. At the end of harvest season they gathered together to enjoy the fruits of their labor.
     Since my youngest son and his wonderful girl friend are hosting Turkey Day in their new home, I thought I would make a quick tag to include on a gift I have for them. Let's take a look:

      This is such a quick and easy tag and I love the stick pin from an earlier release as well as the wonderful gingham swirl flower from this months release. The PP products just make anything you create extra special!
     Be sure to add some of these great products to to your Christmas shopping list. You can shop HERE
     First I started with a plain manila shipping tag. I decided to use my distress it all to add a little distressing before I used some inks around the edge. Next I added a strip of scrap paper to the center (yup that's paper I love how it looks like fabric!). 




     I had some yellow fabric flowers leftover from another project and thought this would look great to use with the gingham swirl flower. Now I was on a roll!!! I pulled out some mulberry leaves I had and loved how they looked but it was still missing something. Hmmm what about a stick pin?



     Yup, that did the trick! I love when that happens. Now all I did was to use my label maker and added the Thank You. This is a great way to add dimension! There you have it, a quick and easy thank you tag!

  
     Fortunately for all of you the Pinque Peacock shop is online and ALWAYS open. So while you are waiting for your guests to arrive you can get your shopping all done, lol.
     I truly wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving. What am I thankful for? Well of course all of you. Thank you for stopping by and hope you will also follow my Blog where I will give you more details on "how she'd do that???"
