It's Hop Time.....

Hey everyone....I don't know about you guys, but hop time seems to be coming around quicker and quicker each month....I can barely keep up!!...This month, the Pride from JustafewFriendz is celebrating Thanksgiving and/or Fall.  We have all been madly creating a feast of festive projects to inspire you all over the Thanksgiving Holiday.   Seeing as tho we Aussies don't celebrate Thanksgiving I went for a fall type project.  This month we set a challenge for the cubs.  We wanted them to create something for their home, for their hearth or for their thanksgiving table. It could be anything from a banner to a table decoration or they could alter, upcycle or re-purrrrrrrpose something as well.

I chose to go with a table decoration in fall colours.   Once again I have chosen Graphic 45 papers.  Yes, I am addicted to Graphic 45, but you have to agree the Botannique papers are purrrrrr-fect for and they made this cute little project **shine**.

 This little wishing well is an SVG file that I bought from Creative Cutz.  I dry embossed the wishing well panels the brick wall embossing folder from Darice.  I then lightly inked over the embossing with Tim Holtz Walnut stain.  I have a range or mixture of flowers and vines.  Some of the flowers are from some Autumn toned silk flowers and some are mulberry flowers that I have sprayed with a mix of glimmer mist and Tim Holtz Perfect Pearl Mist in Cappuccino.  I have added a couple of from Suzie and one from my collection of stickpins.  The little bucket actually does wind up and down.  I have added some "wishes" inside.  These are just some rolled up scrap papers that I have stamped with a script stamp and inked the edges, then tied with twine to keep them together.  I have a video of it working over on my youtube channel here

 So whilst I had a huge mess everywhere with my flowers and burlap I decide to use up some leftovers and decorated a wreath.  I have had this wreath stashed away in my craft supplies for what seems like forever! I thought it would go perfectly with our hop theme this month and it was high time it was shown a little love.

Well all that is my projects for this month.  I hope you all have a wonderful, safe and blessed Thanksgiving.  Remember to love your family and keep them close.....

Now if you could all prowl and pounce over to Suzie to see what purrrrr fect creations she has for you, I would be so pleased.  If you have randomly pounced by....then please start our festive hop at Elsa's and come prowl along with the Pride...we would sure love your company....Below is the den line up for you to jump to.

Me....You are here

Remember everyone stay safe, stay warm and roooooooaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrr with Pride.....
till next time.......
Love and blessings to you all
