Time to give thanks...

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

Welcome to my blog for the 'Gobble Wobble Turkey Hobble' Thanksgiving mini blog hop by Imaginisce and happy Thanksgiving to all those who are celebrating the holiday today! Being from Australia we don't have a specific holiday to celebrate the abundance of our harvest and our seasons are a little different so we are just beginning to reap the benefits of our hard work. The farmer is out tonight on our header and is busy trying to harvest some crop before we have a heavy downpour of rain that is fast approaching! That same crop has graced the centrepiece of my harvest wreath and what fine looking heads of wheat - I'm very proud of the farmer's produce as he works extremely hard!

Doing a spot of recycling I purchased this stick wreath from a local opportunity shop in town and layered paper wheat heads cut by my Cricut using the gorgeous Imaginisce Apple Cider collection which had the perfect colour tonings. To jazz it up a little I applied a few metallic pearl glamrocks to the title with my i-rock and made a couple of hessian and terry-cloth brads using the i-top and finished it with a ribbon bow again from the Apple Cider range.


Imaginsice have been super generous and have decided to give one lucky blog hop participant the opportunity to take home their very own Provo Craft Gypsy... you've got to be thankful about that!
The Gypsy stores all your Cricut cartridges, making it easy to search and find just the right shapes. Gypsy works easily with any Cricut machine just connect and cut! Design anywhere with Gypsy from Provo Craft.
How do you win... well this is a blog hop, so you need to visit all three designers participating in the hop, leave a comment to say you've paid them a visit and on your journey you have to work out which designer did not use the Limited Edition Cricut Thanksgiving cartridge on their project. Then return to the Imaginisce blog with your answer... it's that easy!
Time to wobble and gobble your way over to:
Now the big question... have I used the Limited Edition Cricut Thanksgiving Cartridge on my wreath? Shhhh it's a secret!
