Season's Giving Blog Hop {Hello & Thanks}


Happy New Year! I love that Latisha has organized  this wonderful blog hop again this year. It's the third time I am participating and I love that I have a chance to say thank-you to all my readers and followers. I am blessed to work for some amazing companies and I am soooo, happy to have the opportunity to pay it forward. So Thank-you!  All of you. I love to read your comments and I sure hope if you come by that you'll leave a word or two to say "hi"! 

I have a pile of thank-you's to write to my students and a few friends that dropped off gifts for the holidays. I needed to create some quick, one layer cards and my LID products sure made it easy. 


They are all  the same, I just changed up the colors. Stamps are from the All About Ampersand stamp set and the Stitched Mats-Rouned Rectangles makes the perfect little note card. I  simply went through my card stock scraps and cut a bunch of cards. 


Here's what you can win. 


  • Simply leave a comment telling me something you are looking forward to in 2015!
  • You have until Jan.5 to leave a comment.
  • Please play fair.....only 1 comment, please
  • I will announce the winner on Jan. 6, right here on my blog. 
  • Please leave an email in your comment so I can let you know if you are a winner
Here's to another fantastic year of blogging! I hope you'll stick around and see what I have in store. Stampy Hugs! 

Now off you go, to see all the other stampers joining the blog hop.
Sherri Holt is next.....but here is the rest of the list to follow, as well. 


 Each one has something to give away. Please go check it out!
