"Thankful" at The Shabby Tea Room

Here we are already at November 2nd.
I have always loved November,
not sure really why.
Maybe it is because it is a time for family
to get together, a time to be thankful
for all we have, freedom, food on our tables,
clothes on our backs, to be able to live as we do.

Which brings us to our new challenge at
The Shabby Tea Room with the theme "thankful"
and using the inspiration photo below.

Our sponsor is Great Impressions Stamps.
Have you seen their stamps?
Oh my, they are the cutest....I am placing an order this month!

Now I have to admit I ordered a die purposely for this challenge.
Crazy huh...oh well, I love it....
it is Memory Box Pillar Candle Trio.
The pine greens are Impression Obsession.
I used a Snow Marker on them.
The little acorns are from a Spellbinders set Fall Foliage,
I added gold glitter to the tops.
I added a bow with some newly purchased $1 ribbon from Walmart...
I wish I had purchased two rolls is so pretty!

The background paper is 
The Paper Studio The Shoppe on the Square....
the entire pad is gorgeous!
To finish, I added a meaningful sentiment,
one I think all us could learn from!

Now run, don't walk, over to The Shabby Tea Room
and see what the other "shabby girls" have created....
beautiful projects!!!

Entering the following challenges:
Craft-Dee Bowz ... ATG With a Handmade Bow
Eureka Stamps .... Give Thanks
Path of Positivity (m)... Gratefulness

Hmmm... I have a similar candle die and you're giving me ideas. Really love this with the Pine Greens and the SO fabulous ribbon and pretty paper. I have a few Great Impressions stamps and do love them. Okay, I'm having a serious crush on that ribbon. I think you'll need another roll.
