{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,
