Thankful for Fall Blog Hop....

Welcome to the Thankful for Fall Blog Hop!


This hop is all about the beauty of Fall and being thankful for what we do have. Enjoy the creativity, get inspired, share some crafty love, and then randomly thank some one. 

There are nine stops and you won't want to miss any of them! If you are here from Migdalia's blog then you are in the right place. If you just happened onto my blog today and would like to join us, then start at Carson's CreationsGeorgiana's blog. There is also a complete line-up at the end of this post just in case you need it. 


What would a hop be without Blog Candy?!?! Since each of use are thankful for our crafty friends, each blog has a bit of candy that needs to be won. Thank goodness for candy!


And Here's How:
Be sure to be a FOLLOWER and COMMENT on each blog.
If you are a follower, your comment could be randomly drawn to win some fantastic prizes! Read each blog post carefully to see what is being offered at each stop along the way! 

Here are my projects:




Clearly... I could NOT just make 1 Fall project! LOL
So I started with this adorable Wooden Sign I made -
Got the plain wooden sign from Walmart for $1.97
Then painted it - added the pretty Fall papers from Echo park -
Then added the assorted Vinyl sayings and spruced it up with some 
sweet Fall embellishments! :) It turned out AWESOME I think! :)



Okay.... it would not be a hop without me making at least 1 card! Right?
So... I made this sweet Fall card, using the same Fall Echo Park paper
and a FANTASTIC (Thankful) Word die by Gina Marie - I cut the word out 3 x's for added Dimension and popped up the small flower along with
adding some clear wink of Stella glitter


This is the prize being offered on my page:

I'm giving away this Fantastic (THANKFUL) Die


I just so happen to have an extra one for some lucky follower! YAY
Along with the card I made for the hop - :)



Remember to win, you need to be a follower of my blog and leave a comment!
You have until Sunday night, November 20th at 8:00 pm EST to hop along with us! All winners will be announced on Monday, November 21st on each individual blog. The winners will also be posted on Carson's Creation Facebook page after all the winner's posts go live on each blog.
