Hi everyone! This time of year we count our blessings and the things we are grateful for. I am full of gratitude to Simon Says Stamp for asking me to be a part of this wonderful Gratitude Blog Hop...how honored I am to be a part of a hop that celebrates this season and holiday of gratitude and with so many incredible artists!! What are you grateful/thankful for? I am so very grateful for LOVE...the love for and of my Lord, husband, children, family, friends and followers...a girl couldn't ask for any more than that!!! This blog hop is a great way to share creative ways to celebrate our gratitude!!...In keeping with love and gratitude, here's what I have made:
I took some Thanksgiving/Fall colored strips(YOU could use any color palette:)!) of Tim Holtz Kraft Core paper, adhered them to a piece of copy paper and die cut with the Simon Says Stamp Thinking of You die on top of the strips. I then die cut another sentiment with white cardstock and adhered the two together. I used the same colors of paper and die cut all sizes of hearts with the Simon Says Stamp Hearts Stars Die (LOVE the sizes of these hearts!!!). I stamped with versamark on white cardstock with the Hero Arts Large Fabric Design stamp and clear embossed for a background with some "added interest". Layered on dark brown and then on some Tim Holtz Distress paper(LOVE the colors and textures of this paper....it's beautiful!!)...here's a closer look ...
I just couldn't stop the love...
All the products I used are listed at the bottom of the post:)!!
