Give thanks in everything!

In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 
1 Thessalonians 5:18. 

CHACB Challenge: #19

Gloria Designs ChallengeOur first November challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous is: For all that You do, Thank You!
The challenge is create a "thank you" gift for this challenge. It can be a Thanksgiving hostess gift or a simple thank you card. It can be a "thanks for helping me out of a jam" present, or a "thanks for being you" scrapbook layout. As long as your project says, "THANKS," enter the challenge! We want to see you de-hoard some of your stash and say thanks to someone! (Your project does not have to be Thanksgiving-themed!)

We will again be selecting favorites and one talented participant will receive a fantastic prize for their work from our fabulous sponsor for this challenge, Artistic Adventures, owned by Heather Hudson. We are also having a blog hop with the Artistic Adventures Design Team for this challenge, so please check them out!

 Heather lives in Michigan with her two teenage sons, hubby, and kitties.  She works full time as a RN with ventilated young adults, and enjoys volunteering with her two son's Boy Scout Troop and Tennis Team.  She loves to create digital collage sheets in the Vintage, Victorian, and Shabby Chic Style.

You have until Sunday, Nov. 16 at midnight PST to prepare, submit and link up your project to the CHAC Blog. Please visit the blog for complete rules and the prize package AND information on our wonderful sponsor!
