Hello crafters! What are you thankful for? This time of year we count our blessings and the things we are grateful for. I'm so very grateful for so many things: Christ's sacrifice for me, my husband, kids, and extended family. I'm grateful for good friends who love me just the way I am. I'm also grateful for all of you who stop by and visit my blog. Thank you!
If you've been following along the Simon Says Stamp Gratitude Blog Hop you should be arriving from extremely talented and super sweet Jennifer McGuire's blog. If you're just joining us please start HERE.
Here are a couple of cards I made to say 'Thank You' for some recent acts of kindness shown to me. The first one is going to my dearest friend who knew how much I needed an extra little love on my birthday a couple weeks ago. The other is for our pastor and his wife for having a group of us homeschooling parents and our kids over for a hot dog roast, s'mores, and a treasure hunt through the woods by their house. It was so thoughtful of them and the kids had a blast! :)
For this first card I used one of the label dies from the Simon Says Stamp Apothecary Labels set to die cut different patterned papers to create my own patterned background. (It kind of reminds me of quilt.) I used a stamp from the coordinating stamp set for my sentiment. The great thing about these products is that they can be bought separately or at a discounted rate together as a bundle.
For this second card I used the same stamp and die set as above along with Simon Says Stamp's Curvy Snowflake die, Simon Says Stamp's Folded Banner die, and few other dies. Everything is linked below.
Thanks to Simon Says Stamp I will be giving away a $50 donation to the charity of one commenter's choice.
