With Thanksgiving just around the corner we want to see a "Giving Thanks" creation at Tuesday Throwdown. Our Sponsor this week is Sweet & Sassy. Don't you love this cute little digital pumpkin image! Be sure to stop by and see all of the great stamps and digis they have. I made my image in a several sizes, water colored them and cut some of them out.I used the great Waltzingmouse Sketch for my card. I cut one of the pumpkin images apart and put it on the tag and added a larger one to the pocket. I did some decorative stitching around the orange print and the faux stitching on the tag and pocket.

Some more stitching and another pocket on the inside. Since Holidays are a special time of getting together for our family we have lots of traditions. On Thanksgiving we all write down what we are thankful for and share that when we get together. I filled my pocket with little tags for everyone to write on. I will send one to each family. Does your family have any traditions for Thanksgiving??

Gorgeous. I love how you have turned your shape into a pocket, not thought to do that myself before, thanks for the idea *g* The stitching makes the pocket look even more real.
