October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Thanks & Giving

Welcome to our blog hop featuring this month's stamp of the month, Thanks & Giving.
If you're following the bog hop path, you just came from Melinda's blog. To see the entire list of participants, visit Melinda Everitt's blog post.

I made a card by gold embossing  two of the sentiments and the floral bough on papers from the Grateful Heart pack. All of the edges of the papers were scissor distressed. The stitched scallop Pomegranate circle was cut using the Fancy Tags Thin Cuts.

Here's a close-up of the embossing. I embellished it with the gold flecked gems and white and gold skinny ribbon:

You can purchase this stamp set from your CTMH consultant or here on my website for $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase or for $18.95 only during the month of October. 

Thank you for visiting! Now you're ready to see the creation on Katy Taylor's blog.  

Give Thanks

October has always been one of my favorite months. The days are usually sunny but the temperatures are much more mild than they were in the summer. Perhaps the colors of autumn are another one of the attractions. It is also a time of reflection and giving thanks for the many blessings God has provided.

Here's a scripture card I made using a Verve scripture stamp that is no longer available. It fit perfectly with the papers and other stamps from the You Got This card kit.

I inked the sunflower with Saffron and lightly rolled the edges with Autumn Terracotta ink. The heart was stamped with Pomegranate and the sentiment with Sapphire.

Please visit again tomorrow to see links to our blog hop and the favorite card I've made with the Grateful Heart papers and the new stamp of the month, Thanks & Giving.
