Good evening and welcome to another CSS Alumni blog hop. For this hop the theme is "Thankful". You should have just come from Miesje's blog where she shared her beautiful thankful project. If not, you will want to start at the beginning of the hop over at StampTV.com. Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, November 26th.
This time of year in the US many people are preparing for the Thanksgiving holiday. This brings being thankful to the forefront for many. I for one am thankful every day for the blessings God constantly provides to me. I am especially thankful for my creative gifts and the pleasure I get from being able to stamp, sew, crochet to name a few. If it weren't for my mom taking time to do crafty stuff with me as a kid, I may not be doing all the fun creative things I do today. So my "Thankful" card is meant for my mom to tell her how much appreciate her teaching me to be crafty.
I used a fun set illustrated by Theresa Momber called Up and Away! I love how simple it is to just stamp the balloon images on pattern paper and cut them out for cute hot air balloons. The sentiment is from a set illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger called Holiday Basket.
Now head over to Lori's blog to see her thankful project.
