Christian Paper Crafts "Giving Thanks" Blog Hop and the Pumpkin Patch

Hello Delightful friends and family!
Today is the Christian Paper Crafts "Giving Thanks" blog hop and you are invited!  Just head over to the Creative Blog and either visit the participants or link up and join the fun - but hopefully you will do both!  There are some prizes to win so be sure and check it out.

Here is my contribution to the hop.  I've embellished a kraft colored gift bag and made a matching 3x3 note card.
Ingredients:  Designer Paper: BoBunny, Card Stock: Bazzill;  Dimensional Pearls (Terra Cotta) Ranger; Die Cut: (Tim Holtz Alterations Movers and Shapers) Mini Tattered Leaves, Sizzix; Ink: Versamark; Embossing Powder (Gold) Ranger.  Stamp: Gina K Designs, Thanks a Million set.

We spent a little time today with the grandkids at the Pumpkin Patch (sponsored by Mad River Community Hospital).  They have a garden behind the hospital and it was free for the employees (our daughter, Kelly) and their families, they even had a pony & buggy.  I'm sure there will be more pics to come!! ;-)

Jakob and his pick!

Addy deciding... although there was a spider giving her fits and she was not liking the dirt on the pumpkins!  Oh, our little princess!

Thanks for visiting!
