My Creative Time November Release Fontabulous Blog Hop

Good morning!  Today is MCT's November Release Blog Hop!  There will be 2 days of this hop with beautiful creations to inspire you!  You should have arrived here from Cassandra's Blog.  If not you can start at the beginning here!
 


As Emma stated in her video on Wednesday, she is offering a free CUTE stamp set "Thank You Hugs" to everyone who places their order by Sunday @ midnite! That will be the deadline to recieve this FREE stamp set!  This is a little token of her appreciation for ALL of you who made this ALL possible for her to continue to do what she LOVES! Also to celebrate our 2 year anniversary! Yep, she came out w/her first set of stamps 2 years ago......WOW!
 
 
ONE per customer please! You do NOT have to add it to your cart or use a special code, we will just include it w/your order!

 I made a hostess gift bag for Thanksgiving.  It was inspired by these cute Acorn Bells I found at JoAnn.

 
 
I took a 12" piece of burlap and folded it over and stitched up the sides.  Ta da, a cute bag to put some treats in!
