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.
The blog hop designers have been busy creating a card or cards that we hope will inspire you to create your fall themed “thanks” cards whether it be Thanksgiving, Give Thanks, Happy Harvest or a simple Thank You.  


Becky Oehlers is a member of the Gina K. Designs Illustrator Team! Becky’s style is really fun, crisp and clean.  They are used to make wonderful cards with just the right message or can be used to add some fun to your scrapbooking pages.  In addition, Becky is one of the best card designers and artists in the craft world.  Go to Becky’s blog to look at the great things she has been up to AND view the card samples she has created with her newest stamp set “Mistletoe Memories” that was released yesterday during the Stamp TV October Release Party.  

For my card I used 3 of the leaves from Gina's Fall Foliage set.  These leaves are so gorgeous, detailed and so life like!!!  I used my Gelatos and am happy with the results!!  I just colored over the leaves, spritzed with water and stamped, fun and easy!!!

Now it is your turn to blog hop with all of our friends!   
The rules are simple:
  1. Visit each participating blog on the list below. 
  2. Leave a comment for the blog host designer.
If you follow rules 1 and 2, you will be eligible to win the grand prize of a Becky Oehlers stamp set for Gina K. Designs.
At the end of the hop, a random winner will be chosen for the Blog Hop Grand Prize using comments and followers from each blog. We have decided to keep the hop open from Friday – Monday.  We do this because some people that want to participate need more time to get through the entire hop.
 The deadline for leaving comments is Monday, October 22, 2012 at 8pm CST.  The winner will be chosen and announced on Tuesday, October 23, 2012.
