 Here in the Netherlands we do not
celebrate Thanksgiving,
but my American stamping friends do
and I am Thankful to have all those
friends, so it is a good day to say:
Thanks for being my stamping friends!
I made this tag also for the challenge at
The idea is to be inspired by Ranger's challenge and 
Tim Holtz way of making his pumpkin.
You can see it HERE.
  made this tag with
distress stain
Stampers Anonymous TH Thankful Silhouet stamps
sizzix leave dies
clear embossing powder
alcohol ink
metal findings
metal wire
distress ink
 For the pumpkin I added alcohol ink on the metal,
ran it through the cuttlepug and punched out 3 oval shapes
and formed them into the pumpkin.
Theleaves I made like Tim described on his blog
I hope you all have a wonderful 
and happy
 and a creative day!
