So are you ready for some eye candy?
The image i used for my Project is from the Pumpkins set. The moment i saw these pumpkins i thought gift set. Add a couple of Pumpkin Spice Candles in it and give it to your hostess at Thanksgiving Dinner, even if it happens to be you. Why not give yourself a little something right?

My basket was made using Lauren Meader's Timeless Template, Basket basics. I wanted a longer basket so i just put two baskets together and adhered with scor-tape. of coarse no gift set is complete without a card, so i made a real simple one so as not to overpow
er my image. I can see a variety of projects being made with this set. There is also an imag
e in this set with just the pumpkins, ready for you to add any sentiment you would like.









Well, i hope my gift set has given you some inspiration. It's time to head on over to Angie's blog, i know she has something spectacular to show you there. Now don't forget that starting today Friday Oct. 2nd until Friday Oct. 9th you will get 30% off your order so be sure to stock up on your favorites now!! (use code OctBlogHop) also be sure to grab your free digi and the end of the blog hop on The Character Cafe Blog. HAPPY HOPPING!! :0)
Hugs,
Rachel
