So Thankful -- for you!

I'm writing this on Thanksgiving Eve.  We had a wonderful Family celebration at the nursing home where I work today.  We have much to be thankful for.  I've made a few projects this week and am going to post a couple this evening because I have a little free time before I have to start preparing for Thanksgiving.  Plus, I need a bit of a rest from my 10 hour on-my-feet day.

I have a tag I made last weekend that is part of a tag exchange on the design team I serve on for  The theme is winter or Christmas.  I love this little stamp of the week from Unity, and wanted to showcase it.
I colored the various snowmen with Copic markers.  The banner is from the November SMAK kit from Unity.  Paper and tree sticker is Echo Park's Winter Wishes.  Ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon's monthly club kits.  Twine is from Ribbon Carousel.  Snowflake brads are from my stash.  I am entering this tag in Really Reasonable Ribbon's "Anything but a card with ribbon" challenge (RRR#60).
This card was a Make-and -Take project at a Crop Night at my LSS.  The wreath is from Hero Arts.  The wood is a thin veneer that can be run through a Cuttlebug or Cricut (or any diecutting machine).  I, of course, bought some of it. I am entering this in the Ribbon Carousel blog's Giving Thanks/Fall challenge and 3 Girl JAM's challenge #7 -- Thanksgiving/color challenge/w Ribbon.
I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving!
