Thankful for Fall!

 Yeah - my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving is coming up soon!  Every year I enjoy making small gifts for my family and friends for the holiday.  This week I was playing around with the stamp set, Thankful Forest Friends and made some cards and fridge magnets.  I just love the little fox & bear images in the set! They have such a cute, whimsical look to them.  I might even use them for some of my Christmas crafting, too.

I found the idea for this card on Pinterest by Darlene Froese. 

Once I started to make the magnets, I just couldn't stop!  They are the perfect size for just saying a little something.  They measure 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" and are the same size as Artist Trading Cards that were popular a few years ago.  I got the plastic frames from the Christmas Tree Shop.

Here is another card and magnet that I made.  My stamping friends all loved the fall wreath on the door card.  Nice thing is, you can make it to match any season.  I got the idea from Annette Bogue.

This is the view of a tree in my front yard.  Isn't it so beautiful?  I could just go on and on making fall projects.  If only fall lasted longer...

  1. Beautiful tree- fall is my favorite time of year- wish it would last about 6 months. Framing the magnets is a great idea - it makes them durable.
