November SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Stamp Of The Month Blog hop!  You should be coming from Jill's blog, but if you are starting here that is ok, just keep hopping and you'll do a complete circle!

This month's stamp set it A Little Thanks - you could earn it free for the month on November (or you can purchase it out right, click here to go to my site to see the details.)


I thought this would be easy - everyone needs some thank you cards laying around and should send out whenever you can - but this wasn't as easy as I thought.  This stamp set has messy spots in some of the words - the stamps are made that way and I like it clean so it was hard for me.

Since I do a lot of workshops and have tons of unfinished cards from the displays, I decided to use some to put them to good use:

 The stamp in the right corner is from this set - the little lady is from a stamp set I LOVE and enjoy coloring with markers! Sometimes I use itty bitty sparkles for earrings!
 All these stamps are from this set! 
I put the same words around the square as a boarder.



 See the thank you above - the spots below the YOU is part of the stamp - I don't know how I feel about that messy stuff.  Maybe if the whole card was messy??

 Again, the words were messy above - if you click on the photo it'll get bigger - what are your thoughts?
I then decided to try something a little different and do some very plain thank you cards and bend the words around the THANKS.  These will go in my purse for a quick note.  I think more people should send out thank yous - even for the littlest things - don't you?

Now head over to Shannon's blog to see what great work she's created for you!

  1. I love your cards. And, I agree about the "messy" part. It was also difficult for me to incorporate into my thank you card for this hop b/c I, too, prefer "clean, crisp" images. Your cards are adorable! :)
