Thankful Hearts Blog Hop

It's new release time at Verve and we're topping off our Thankful Hearts Blog Party with a blog hop featuring three new sets that just released, all focused on thankfulness. If you've been hopping and arrived from Charmaine's blog (link to the person above you on the list), then you're right where you should be. If you've just happened by, then you'll want to hop on over to Poetic Artistry to start from the beginning!

And to make this hop even sweeter, we've got a special treat hidden along the way for one lucky commenter. So if you see something that makes you smile, be sure to give a little shout-out in the comments for a chance to win our entire release!

My project today features my favorite set from this release, Thankful Accents. I altered a small clear paint pail to create a simple little hostess gift to have on hand for all those upcoming Holiday Parties we'll be attending soon!

I used the soothing color combo of Kraft (Surprise!! LOL), So Saffron, Very Vanilla and PTI's Ocean Tides.
I filled the paint pail with some See's chocolates and it's ready to be given a small token of appreciation to the hostess of the next Holiday Party we attend!
My favorite part of this project? That fantastic stamped circle thing!! I already have a long mental list of future uses for that thing!! :-)

Thanks for hopping by! Next up on the hop is AMBER!!
