Gratitude Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the November edition of Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop!  This month we are showing our gratitude...whether it be for our family and friends, or our childrens teachers, our neighbors or even our local law enforcement officers and fire fighter/paramedics...they all deserve our thanks!
As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number THREE on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop -  Diana at Stampin' Fun with Diana If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

Between the Marines celebrating their birthday on Monday and Veterans Day on Tuesday, there was lots of talk in my family about the sacrifices all of the service men and women make for all of us. It was heartwarming to hear my 9 year old boys talk about it and know that they really understood what Veterans Day is really about.  With those feelings fresh in my mind, I decided to show my gratitude for these amazing men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and for those who continue to do so today!

Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Night of Navy, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Whisper White
Ink ~ Night of Navy, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry
Stamp Sets ~ Words of Courage (MDS), Be the Star, Truly Grateful
Other Supplies ~ Star Framelits

Another group of individuals I am always thankful are our local firefighters and paramedics.  Not only because my husband is part of this group of people, but because they too put their life on the line each and every day to make sure others are safe.
On September 11th this year, the department stood guard in front of a statue that was put up to honor those firefighter and paramedics who lost their life on 9/11.  This is something they do every year and it touches my heart every single time!
This page was created in MDS and will be added to our Family favorite way to preserve our memories!

Thanks for hopping along with all of us today!  Be sure to hop along to all of the stops so you don't miss any of our INKspiring creations!
