Now, onto our challenge this week….

Have I taken the time lately to tell you, my dear readers, how much I appreciate your comments, suggestions and general presence here on my blog? Well, I do!

Which brings me to the theme of this week’s Use It Tuesday challenge.We want you to “Show Us Your Thankful” side.

For some of you, located in the United States, this theme will probably bring out your Thanksgiving side. For others, like me, who may have celebrated Thanksgiving earlier in the fall (or perhaps don’t celebrate it at all), you may interpret our challenge in other ways. We can’t wait to see what you do!

For me, I did think of Thanksgiving, but our holiday had already passed. So, I chose to make a Thanksgiving themed card, without the appropriate sentiment. Hopefully that works for you.

What’s hoarded in this beauty? Well, now that’s a story. I actually started this card a few weeks ago for another Use It Tuesday challenge, All About Fall. But, we took a Fall family trip and preparations meant I didn’t get my card done in time. So, I pulled it out of my stash when I returned and finished it up for this challenge. Besides that, all the materials (image, paper, bow, rhinestones) came from a card kit, which I tend to hoard in large quantities (truthfully, you should see them all).

Well, THANKS for reading. Now it’s your turn.

Link up your project on the Use It Tuesday website using Inlinkz before November 23, 2012. No blog? No problem! Just use the keyword USE043 when uploading your project to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so that we can find your creation.

**Once again, please remember that we ask you to mention you’re playing along with us and tell us what part of your project comes from your hoarded stash.**

Come on back November 26th while we give thanks to three lucky entries. One will be randomly chosen as our winner and asked to be a guest designer on a future challenge. Two others will be shown our appreciation with the honor of Top 2 Design Team picks!

Have fun, Users!!
