Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice
Wooo Hooo! It's the weekend! So what crafty plans do YOU have?
I want to show you a fun little Thanksgiving gift I plan to give to our pastor at church tomorrow. something quick and easy and sure to please because it's food! grins!
Last night I made several loaves of banana nut bread. it's a great recipe because there is no sugar added, but also none of the sugar substitutes either - just all natural ingredients. it's so yummy that it doesn't last long around my house. I thought it would make a special treat for our pastor and his wife as a way of saying thank you for all that they do for our church community throughout the year.
the white jute twine was the perfect thing to wrap around the loaf for a bit of decoration. easy peasy to make a fun bow with, too! as I've said before, if this twine ever goes out of stock in the Paper Temptress store, you can be sure I had something to do with it! tee hee! I added some sticks, feathers, and a leaf to the bow for a touch of autumn.
it was fun to create a little card to go along with the bread. I used the Desert Storm Kraft cs as a base for the leaf template by Shape EZ. it was lightly embossed, edges were inked, and then distress stickles were added for a touch of sparkle. a cute turkey digi image from QKR Stampede was added along with vintage button, sticks from the yard, little rose from Wild Orchid Crafts, and 1/8" wine satin ribbon with gold gold edges made into a fluffy bow. All set for gift giving! :)
thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous weekend! :)
