Offering Our Thanks and Gratitude ~ Control Freaks November Blog Hop


Welcome to the November Control Freaks Blog Hop!  This month we are full of thankfulness and gratitude and can't wait to share it all with you.  Whether you started here or arrived from the amazing Tami Hewlett's blog, be sure to hop your way all the way through!

The first card I am staring today was a special project for a dear friend at work.  She requested several Thank You cards for secretaries across our school district and I was more than happy to comply!

We are nearing the end of our beautiful fall season where I'm from, but a few leaves are still hanging on, providing a last bit of inspiration!  I started by stamping the Birch background stamp on a sheet of Basic White.  I die cut some Intricate Leaves Dies in shades of Cajun Craze, Mango Melody, Merry Merlot and Early Espresso.  A circle of Cork Specialty Paper was the perfect amount of texture to go along with these beautiful fall colors.
A simple Thanks sentiment from Artistically Inked heat embossed in white on Basic Black added a pop of boldness and a little bit of pulled-apart Crumb Cake Bakers Twine and a few Artistry Blooms sequins were all that were needed to finished this card off.  

Next up is a wintery thank you using the Peaceful Cabin Bundle.  If you haven't seen the Peaceful Place DSP in person, you MUST add it to your collection before its too late.  This paper is filled with beautiful wintery images with a surprise of some silver foil mixed throughout. 

The serene cabin and trees were stamped in Basic Gray, then die-cut with the coordinating Cabin dies.  Isn't that little fox the cutest?!?! These were layered together on top of a shimmery treelined piece of DSP to create a peaceful winter retreat. I need to find a place like this to visit soon!

Once again, I heat embossed the sentiment in white on Basic Gray and added just a bit of bling with the Subtle Shimmer Sequins. I just love the calming nature of this's gorgeous!  

We are so thankful for all of you hopping along with us!  We love to share our 
creations with you!

Next up on the hop is the wonderful Wendy Weixler!

Happy Stamping!
