I'm thankful - for another TCP Tuesday Blog Hop!

Hi all! I'm the Hostess with the Mostess this week for TCP Tuesday - and we're having another Blog Hop to show off the two new stamp sets that Alma is releasing on October 20th!! The hop starts right here with me, and I have a new inspiration piece for you on the left from the Pottery Barn catalog. I just love the mix of the fall colors with the tin!

For my card I used the brand new "Gobble It Up" set along with buttons from the "Hocus Pocus" set. The patterned paper is by Basic Grey, and I paper-pieced the tablecloth and the penguin's napkin :) As always, you can play along with the challenge and post your creations directly to Alma's blog. This week, since we're doing a blog hop, we have a PRIZE! All you have to do is leave a comment on each blog throughout the hop, and Alma will draw a random winner this coming Friday! Your next stop will be Leigh's blog - ENJOY!!
