Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #19....For All You Do...Thank You!

Good morning and welcome to the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #19.  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 doesn't have to be Thanksgiving themed!)  You have until Midnight PT on November 16 to enter this challenge, so get busy and show us some "Thank You"!  I can't wait to see what you create!

For my project I did a Thank You Tag.  This can be slipped down inside a gift bag along with a small gift or I've always felt this type of tag can be a stand alone gift!

The old shoe is from My Artistic Adventures and I handmade all the flowers and leaves but one.  I had it in my hoard and decided it was time to use it!  I made the centers of the flowers with half pearls dipped in chunky glitter and I love the way they turned out.  I colored some half beads with a marker to match the shoe and I also colored the beads on the pretty lace.  I just love this image and I will be using it on other projects in the near future!  I stamped the Thank You stamp from Flourishes and cut out using the Tag Die from Heartfelt Creations.  The flowers are also from Heartfelt Creations.  I hope you enjoy this tag as much as I have enjoyed making it!

The sponsor for this Challenge is My Artistic Adventures and the My Artistic Adventures Team is joining us for a blog hop!  What fun! Their names are listed below along with the Craft Hoarders team.  Go visit everyone and leave them some love.  In return you will definitely be inspired!

The lucky winner of this challenge will win a $25 choice of Vintage, Victorian and Shabby Chic inspired Digital Collage Sheets!  How cool is that! 

Heather lives in Michigan with her two teenage sons, hubby, and kitties.  She works full time as a RN with Ventilated young adults, and enjoys volunteering with her two son's Boy Scout Troop and Tennis Team.  She loves to create digital collage sheets in the Vintage, Victorian, and Shabby Chic Style.  She will show you blogging tips, paper crafting tutorials, and how to use her digital collage sheets on her Youtube channel.  Heather hosts her own challenge on her blog and designs for Really Reasonable Ribbon, Gecko Galz, and the Creative Cutting Challenge.
