A Thankful Gift

Can you believe it?  I made something...LOL....not that I don't make stuff all the time but this was actually done way ahead of time...We are invited to Jerri Ann's In-laws for Thanksgiving.  This will be the second time we've been invited and we are always grateful.  So, this year, I decided to take a hostess gift to thank them for their hospitality!  I bought the file from the Silhouette store, made my own matting out of cardstock and framed it in a dollar store frame.  The wording is just printed on to cardstock but then I cut the word Thanksgiving and one arrow out of cardstock and popped them up to give the saying a bit of dimension.  I've thought about adding some colorful leaves but haven't committed to that yet...maybe...just not sure.  I'm going to make a tag for the gift bag this afternoon and will post it later.

I will be glad when I've used up the ink in my old a good deal on a new one and can't wait to hook it up but I had some ink left for the old one and am too fugal to waste it.  If you look closely, my old printer doesn't always print the best...leaves some lines in some of the colors.  I'm sure, once the Christmas cards are done, my ink will be gone too...
