Welcome to the Creative Circle Design Team Blog Hop. This month the theme is "Thankful" and I am truly thankful to all my fellow stamper blog readers and supporters! Thank you!

I love giving gifts and Thanksgiving is a great time to express your gratitude. These two gifts are so easy to make:

 I purchased a burlap covered frame from my favorite local craft store and a set of votive candles (pumpkin spice, of course) from my local Dollar Store.  I stamped the leaves from "Vintage Leaves" stamp set with Versamark and embossed with Copper Embossing Powder. The effect was beautiful and I wish the pictures reflected the copper embossing better.

I fussy-cut the leaves, but you could use the Leaflet Framelits that coordinate with this stamp set. I added the 5/8" Burlap Ribbon and a few copper brads that I had in my stash.

Here's a close-up of the candle set - again, all the leaves and the sentiment are copper embossed. I cut my own tag out of a piece of burlap and used the Lots of Label Framelits to back the sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed my project. I would love to hear from you. Follow the links below to see what other awesome projects our team has for you!

I hope you and your family have the best Thanksgiving ever.
