TE Blog Hop: Thankful for You


Hi there and welcome to this month’s TE customer blog hop!  Our theme this month {since Thanksgiving is fast approaching} is Autumn or Thankfulness. 
This month I am thankful for family.  Two weeks ago my oldest sister and her family came to visit us and we had such a wonderful time!  I miss them so much and am so blessed to have them in my lives.  My niece and nephew are so adorable – and I am thinking of sending this to my niece some day, I bet it will put a big smile on her face and she will say in such a high-pitched voice, "oh how cute" - I can just hear her now!  Here is a picture of them showing off their pretty Fall wreaths they made us - they BOTH love to do crafts (they are surely related to me, huh?) in fact we had craft night on Sat night where I showed them how to make hand turkeys - that was fun!  I will share those pictures soon (perhaps on Turkey Day next week, that would be fitting!)

I wanted to use one of my favorite TE sets, Beary Special/Accessories and paired 2 of the bears (head & arms of one and legs/feet of another and took the pumpkin from the Celebrate Life set for the bear’s pumpkin body – I just adore how this turned out!!  The papers and buttons I used are Basic Grey Pyrus – perfect for an Autumn card, and the ribbon is my all-time favorite brown w/cream dot!  I used the beautiful & talented Sankari's sketch for my card, I just adore her & her style! she creates magic with her creations all the time!


We'll be drawing one random winner to receive a FREE Taylored Expressions stamp set of their choice from all the participants in the blog hop below and we'll also be choosing another creation to be featured in an upcoming TE newsletter.  So, if you're not participating this time, you can next month, when we hop again so take out your TE stamps (or buy some now so you can play next month!)  Pin It
