I needed to make a few Thanksgiving cards and wanted to do simple ones. I always seem to like how the clean and simple ones turn out best.
The stamp sentiment is from a Stampendous stamp which I purchased at Hobby Lobby. Used Spellbinders Labels 9 on the front of the card and the paper is K&Company which I layered on Kraft cardstock. Found a package of small rolls of fall ribbon at Marshalls and I love this stripe ribbon from the pack.
I do have a lot of blessings to be thankful for.

Hello Creative Friends,
I saw these cute little boxes over on the Chick’nScratch Blog and had to try some of them. The blog post there showed snack size candy bars in them, but I thought they’d be cute for lip balms and I know many of you use those for favors at your Ladies Meetings.
These were really easy. Of course, Angie, over at the Chic’nScratch Blog has a video tutorial for it with easy instructions that I followed. I did have a little trouble with the back sides of the lid sticking out a little, but I just tied my ribbon around that end to keep them from spreading like wings. I’m not sure what the paper is called that I used. I know it was Stampin’ Up! DSP. Just some partial pieces I had in my stash.
I thought since I was putting lip balms in them, “Smile!” was the perfect sentiment. Of course I looked high and low through all my stamps to find one that said “smile” and finally found one in a strawberry set of all places. That Strawberries set is from Flourishes.
Be sure to head over to the Chick’nScratch Blog to get the instructions!
By the way, Avon usually has lip balms for around $1.00. You can check out my daughter’s online Avon Store if you don’t have an Avon Consultant. Right now they have the “Holly Jolly” lip balms for 99 cents. One thing I like about ordering Avon online is that their shipping is so reasonable. Plus I love my Avon lady

Have a creative day,
A few years back I wrote a devotional on The Pioneering Spirit and shared it with my Bible Study. It was about all the different ways that the pioneer women struggled but led the way in settling America and how we can learn some important lessons from them. You can find the devotional here.
I had given out a handout to my ladies with some questions to go along with this lesson. This week I came across those questions so I whipped it up into a pdf to share with you since the devotional is already on the website. The questions go along with the points of the devotional.

Have a great day,
As I said in yesterday’s post, I would be having another variation of the 7-Up tag. This one is to give out to someone who’s going through a hard time or situation (a “rocky road”). There’s always someone we know that could use some encouragement. I’m sure many of you have heard that saying that most people “just went through a trial, are in a trial, or getting ready to go through a trial” (something like that).
The tag is to go along with a 7Up bottle and a Rocky Road candy bar. Of course if you wanted to take a friend some Rocky Road ice cream instead, I’m sure that would be okay too!
I ended up taping my candy bar on the bottle (at the top and bottom). I was going to tie it on with a ribbon but the candy bar is made with marshmallow and I didn’t want to squash it.
