'thanks' in many ways

Sorry, I had computer issues with my 'pictures'.

Today is the last day to enter my birthday candy! 
Yup, my birthday week is over!
To see the details, please click on my 'birthday candy' button to the right >>> 
or go to my December 9th post!

Now, put on your memory you remember how I made this complilation of words using the Wordle program...back in October?  

Well, I decided to do something similiar with my {ippity} stamps. However, I wanted to just play with words of 'thanks'.
So what do you think? Would this be something you would try? I had fun creating this and I know I will do it again (except I will use my 'thing-a-ma-jig' to make sure my sentiments are all straight)!  
All the sentiments were from various {ippity} stamp sets: 

'many thanks' is from {ippity} bitty pixie paisley
'Thanks.' is from {ippity} The Simple Things
'Thanks' is from {ippity} Regal Greetings
'thanks so much' is from {ippity} Just Wanted to Say

Isn't this a great variety of 'thanks' sentiments?  
If you NEED any of these sets, you can visit 

I used my Fiskars Upper Crest border punch again too, my Imaginisce i-rock tool and bling, and that yummy ribbon is from one of my local scrapbook stores.

My Friday addition to my blog candy is this 'ten things I love about you' scrapbook (5x5):

My Saturday addition to my blog candy is a brand new SU Old Olive Ink Pad and some elements (for some reason I have dup's and more of these items):

As my card for today says 'thanks, thanks so much, many thanks, and Thanks.
for visiting me my friends!

Don't forget to leave a comment for another chance at the total blog candy package!
You can also join in on the Chick Challenges {with ippity} sketch for two additional entries, but you must do so today, since it's the last day of my candy!

I will announce the winner on Wednesday!

(For my birthday candy info, click on the picture to the right>>>
or go to my post on December 9th! Only two more days left.)

Aren't we always in need of 'thank you' cards? Especially after the holidays!

I used my {ippity} Regal Greetings 'thanks' stamp and {ippity}Mark Your Mark 'honeycomb' stamp for the two corners. I've got these two sets in stock, if you NEED them! *wink*

 The paper is Basic Grey 'basic manila' paper pad, with sponged edges in Antique Linen Distress Ink. The edge punch is Fiskars Border Punch All-A-Fleur Lis.

Above is my addition to my birthday candy for Wednesday: 5 pre-scored cards and matching envelopes in a speckled kraft color.  
And for today: 10 black embellies (black textured cardstock) from the SU Designer Label Punch (now retired).

{ippity} 'THANKS(giving)' Blog Hop~

HELLO and WELCOME!!! the thanks(giving) blog hop with some {ippity} chicks!!  

Thanksgiving is a great time of year and it marks the beginning of the holiday season.  
It's also a time to think about all we are thankful for.  
What a great time to have a blog hop centered around giving thanks and Thanksgiving!
So pull up a chair, grab your favorite beverage, and hop through the blogs to be inspired!

Since our theme is 'thanks' (and I've bolded every 'thanks' in this post..heehee)
I'm sharing a little project of 'thank you' tags.
Here is the mini bag that I decorated (the tags are inside):  
The side strip is a piece of ribbon which I sewed pieces of pattern paper to and then stitched it to the cardstock.

 I used the current sketch at Chick Challenges CC07: 
Still time to play...go check it out!

Here are the mini tags that can be put on any 'thank you' gift, such as around a bottle of wine or tied to a present:
I stitched more the of the ribbon with pattern paper onto the ends of these tags.  

All the sentiments were from various {ippity} stamp sets: 
'many thanks' is from {ippity} bitty pixie paisley
'Thanks.' is from {ippity} The Simple Things
'Thanks' is from {ippity} Regal Greetings
'thanks so much' is from {ippity} Just Wanted to Say
Isn't this a great variety of 'thanks' sentiments?  
If you NEED any of these sets, you can visit my {ippity} shop HERE.

And it's fitting that I also entered this project into the 
Simon Says ,,,,,,,, THANKSGIVING/THANK YOU Challenge

Here is another picture of the mini bag and the mini tags:

To thank you so much for stopping by, 
I would like to send this mini bag and tags project to one random commenter. Just leave a comment and I will pick a winner and post it on Wednesday, November 23rd.  
I hope your Thanksgiving Day is filled with memorable moments and a marvelous meal!

Some of the other chicks are also giving away some blog candy, so don't forget to comment along the hop!!  Happy hopping!!!
