Dallas Mavericks Wreath

My friend Linda loves the Dallas Mavericks, especially Dirk, so I decided to make her a Mavericks Christmas Wreath to put at her desk. I used misc holiday picks and made rosettes with Mavericks Logo, picture of Dirk, and his number. I learned to make a bow on Youtube and attached it to the top. I am going to give it to her Monday and can't wait to see her response.
Thanks Marie for all your help with this one!
Happy Crafting!

Thanksgiving Treat Bags

Today my friends Rona and Marie came over to help me make some Thanksgiving Treat bags. I plan to fill them with special treats and put one at each place setting on my Thanksgiving table. We bought the kraft bags at Hobby Lobby (party section) and used Cricut Thanksgiving cartridge to cut the turkey. The tags were cut with fabulous finds cartridge. The stamp was Stampin up Grateful Greetings set. I hope my guests enjoy them.
Happy Thanksgiving!
