Thanksgiving Gifts Part One

Happy Happy Friday My Blogger Friends!
Count-Down to Wisconsin in 7 Days!
Today I have Part ONE of a three part series on the cards and gifts I received from several of my SaddleBrooke Friends for Thanksgiving.  Let me share two of the 3-D Gifts that I received......
 First up is this ADORABLE Oreo Turkey that my good friend Carol made for me.......
OH MY GOSH.....have you EVER seen anything SO ADORABLE in your life? 
She used two oreo cookies and added five candy corn candies between the cookie...... 
 And she added a whooper for his head.....and a peanut butter cup for his belly.....
The acorn was made with a hersey kiss and a nutty buddy cookie (OH MY GOSH!).....
 I love the turkey face....and knew for a fact that by the time Carol was done with making SEVERAL of these - her hands were shaking BIG TIME when she needed to add the eyeballs!  FABULOUS PROJECT Carol.....and without a doubt....You BLEW ME AWAY this year with your Thanksgiving Project.  THANK YOU for making me one of these cute cute turkeys!
And my last share today is this GORGEOUS BOX that my good good friend Liz made me! 
She told me that when she saw this pattern.....she thought of me (guess it's because I make lots of box projects and Liz is ALWAYS on my gift giving route).
 I was not able to get a good picture of this leaf.....but let me tell you something.....It is LOADED with shimmer and sparkle.   It is sitting on a rosette that is adhered to the top of the box that Liz created.
And speaking of LOADED.....OH MY GOSH!  Liz not only STUFFED this box with LOTS of LOVE.....but she also stuffed it with LOTS of CHOCOLATE! 
I have put this box in my studio and Jack has made SEVERAL TRIPS into my studio to see what I'm working on and before he leave my studio.....he stops by to pick a piece of candy out of this box that Liz made me.  (SMART MAN!)
Liz also added a BEAUTIFUL elastic gold ribbon around the box and it works perfectly to keep the lid to this box on super tight. 
LOVE LOVE LOVE the DSP that Liz used to create her base box and lid.....and adding a scallop edge to the lid edge is such a pretty pretty touch.  
Such a pretty box and one that will proudly display in my studio.....THANK YOU LIZ!
 
I'll be back tomorrow to share Part Two of the cards and gifts I received from a few more of my SaddleBrooke Friends ...... Hope you can stop back tomorrow to check out those projects.  Keep Living Your Dream!
