Mad Libs

Hellooooo.  Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in the US and we had a fun day at my place.  Just a small group, my family (hubby, daughter and I) and my dad and brother who came to visit.  It was a nice relaxed day filled with tasty delights.  The brussel sprouts au gratin was a big hit and so was the bourbon pumpkin caramel tart my brother made.  We all had many things we were thankful for of course. After dinner we played some Thanksgiving mad-libs that were super fun.  I originally saw them on Pinterest and found the link to this website- Howdoesshe?  The printables are free and there is tons of other stuff on the website as well, like DIY, crafts, recipes, you name it.  They were pretty funny to read after.  I think it would make a fun thing to keep for a scrapbook page or something too.

So...I wanted to share with you a little thank you gift I made for some of my neighbors.  I made a few loaves of persimmon bread and decorated them and handed them out.  These are an easy way to say I am thankful for you and would also make great neighbor holiday gifts.  Decorating them was super easy.  I used this awesome paper from MME that is great for fall.  I used my new SU! die cut for a large bow.  I simply added my SRM stickers to a tag and tied it on with some twine.  This bow is super impressive, so you don't have to do much else to make it work.

This is my creations for this week's Cut It Up Challenge- a thank you card or thank you gift.  There are tons of other cool projects made by the other gals on the DT.  All you have to do head on over the CIU blog and check it out.  While you are there you can think about what you want to create for the contest. :)

Need a reminder about the rules?  Just make a new project, use a die cut of any kind and link to the CIU blog.  If your entry is picked as the winner you will receive a $5 gift certificate to Digital Delights and an assortment of brads by the Eyelet Outlet.  Pretty cool eh?!

Hope you have a wonderful Friday!

Belated HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Your gathering sounds warm and special; your brother's dessert, amazing! Your persimmon bread (recipe, please and thank you?) sounds fabulous - and how thoughtful you are to share this gift with your neighbours. The bow - stunning!! Have a great Friday (any shopping on the schedule? I *may* have done a bit already...)
