WELCOME TO THE OCTOBER “GIVING THANKS” BLOG HOP!
Hi everyone! Thanks for playing along in our October blog hop! EXCITING NEWS! The Blog Hop with Sean & Regina will now be featuring Gina K Designs stamps only for our monthly blog hops starting this month! Most everyone we know are busy getting ready for the Halloween fun coming up on the 31st. We spooked it up for you in our last hop, so this month we want to celebrate November by “Giving Thanks” to all of our followers. To some “giving thanks” is the traditional Thanksgiving holiday, but to others to “give thanks” is to show appreciation to all those great family and friends in our lives. So, our hop this month is to show you how different we all give thanks.

I used the stamp set Fall Foliage for my card. And
I just love creating my own bg papers...and for this one, I used a brown paper sack, lunch sack. I smeared some distress stain metallics on it, then crumpled it all up, then light touch it with some vintage photo distress ink. I also stamped the leaf onto a paper bag after coloring it with distress markers. And there is some of the wonderful ribbon that I have used for the past three years! :D It's about gone now!
