Hello Friends!!

Today the 
"My Artistic Adventures Challenge Design Team"
 is Blog Hopping with 
Gloria's Craft Hoarders Design Team!!

Challenge #19 For all that You do, Thank You!

Create a "thank you" gift for this challenge. It can be a Thanksgiving hostess gift or a simple thank you card. It can be a "thanks for helping me out of a jam" present, or a "thanks for being you" scrapbook layout. As long as your project says, "THANKS," enter the challenge! We want to see you de-hoard some of your stash and say thanks to someone! (Your project does not have to be Thanksgiving-themed!)

One Talented Participant that Links up their "Thanks" project to the
will receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the

My inspiration pieces below...

I made this card with a hidden tag
My hoarded pieces are the flowers 
and Tim Holtz seam binding, that has been in my stash for ever!
The background card stock is from my 
leftover paper bits stash.
Most of this card and tag was made using the digi images from two of the
My Artistic Adventures Etsy 
Thanksgiving collage collections
(pictured & linked below)

My next inspiration piece is this altered bottle
(Links to the banner, text boxes and pumpkins are pictured below)

 I colored the inside of the bottle with 
Terra Cotta Alcohol Ink (haven't used that in ages!).
I dripped it in and swirled around. 
I also used my heat gun to try to dry it 
(not easy but it worked eventually).

Here's a close up of the banner, text boxes and pumpkin images...
The other side of the bottle...
I used a tag and sentiment from the collections below.

The jute & crochet flower were made by me.

I added a link to each collage sheet below so you can simply click on the image and go straight to it's Etsy page.
