H2H Challenges (From Your Heart to Ours): Gratitude

This week's Heart 2 Heart challenge is "from your heart to ours," where we ask you to share something special with us. This week's theme is gratitude, and you have all month to play. I created a collection of goodies, and I'll share each of them with you, below. All of my projects use the Sonoma Workshop on the Go kit (paper pack and stamp set). (If you'd like to see the rest of the H2H Design Team's creations, head right on over to H2H. Thanks!)

My first project is a bottle tag (which I am also linking up to CAS-ual Friday's "Tag, You're It" challenge.) Don't you think this would make a lovely hostess gift to show your thanks? It was really simple to create, and I had a scrap of Sonoma paper that was the perfect size! I just used the scalloped circle punch to cut out a whole in the top center to make this piece hang onto the bottle. The back includes a piece of Colonial White cardstock on which to write a personal message. Then I decorated the front similar to my card, below.

This card's decorations were inspired by the Sonoma Workshop on the Go instructions, but I didn't want to make a 6"x6" card. Instead, I used the "Sentiment Secured" pattern from the Wishes how-to book.
Here's a peek at the inside, stamped with the "ribbon" from the Sonoma Workshop on the Go stamp set and punched with a Martha Stewart lovely.

Finally, my last three cards are actually what started this whole project! Since the H2H theme was to create something for someone to whom or for which you're grateful, and of course my family came to mind. I created these three little 2.5"x3.5" cards (also from Wishes patterns) for the loves of my life (from left to right in card order). my husband, my younger daughter, and my older daughter. (I think they were pleasantly surprised to find them last night!)

Thanks for stopping by! I'd love for you to leave a comment, especially sharing what you're grateful for, before heading on. Thank you, dear readers and visitors! I am grateful for YOU.


  1. All your projects are lovely! I especially love the tag for cider. That's our family's favorite holiday drink also. I'm so grateful for every member of my family - family love is so wonderful.

  2. Beautiful. Love the bottle tag idea especially!

  3. Your collection of items are fabulous and I love that you left little love notes for your family to find. =) What a great & simple idea!

  4. Haley,
    Everything is beautiful! I'm sure your family loved the cards. There are so many things I am grateful for - health, family, friends - those I know personally, and those I've met through the internet and blogging (you!). I could go on and on!
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  5. Each piece is just beautiful. You have inspired me to cut into my pack of Sonoma! Thank you.
