Cat's Pajamas Blog Hop - Gobble It Up!


For those of you who are coming from Joanne's blog, hope you are enjoying all the FUN creations inspired by the newly released Gobble It Up thanksgiving set and Babydoll alpha set from The Cat's Pajamas .

For those who may not know, we are having a TCP Blog Hop, and you are just in time!  As part of this hop, both of these newly released stamp sets, Gobble It Up thanksgiving set and Babydoll alpha set, will be given away to a very lucky winner. To qualify, you must post a comment on the blog of each person in the blog hop.  This very lucky winner will be announced on Friday, October 23rd on Alma's blog (Cat's Pajamas owner).

These new stamps are truly swanky and so much FUN to use! Every year we are blessed with hosting a thanksgiving dinner for the family.  I make invitation cards for those who are joining us and thanksgiving cards for those who are far but in our thoughts.  I also do a little something for each family who joined us for dinner to thank them for joining us.  My husband outdoes himself in the kitchen, cooking the turkey and while I take care of the trimmings!  We have a lot of FUN doing it!

---GIVE THANKS INVITE CARD--

When I got this new Gobble It Up thanksgiving set, my eyes hone in on Poochie and that image of  a delicious cooked turkey on a serving tray - and immediately I knew I had to use these images for this year invites! 



This makes such an appropriate invite - the hubby looks as proud as Poochie does after he takes his turkey out of the oven :) !!!

Supplies:
All stamps are from The Cat's Pajamas newly released Gobble It Up set
Martha Stewart leaf punch

Martha Stewart edge punch
DCWV Mi Casa Stack, DCWV Indian Summer Fall Stack, DCWV texture paper
M's ribbon


---THANKS GIFT BAG--

When I saw this Babydoll alpha set, my first thought was what a useful size this 3/4'' font set made.  I really like the bold and whimsical look as well.  I combined this font with Sprinkle in her turkey outfit - now how FUN is that?

And what nicer way to give "THANKS" to our guest for joining us than with a thoughtful gift box-bag full of pumpkin spice cookies?

box-bag - cut file cut using my Cricut and Cricut Design Studio

Hope you enjoyed these gobble gobble creations!  Now head on over to Susan's blog for some more swanky FUN! :)

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your card and gift bag, Carol! I just love (there's that word again!) the colors and patterns on your card, how they pop against the black base, and a guest gift bag filled with pumpkin spice cookies is a great idea... love (LOL!) the button/ribbon/sprig arrangement at the top! Terrific job!
