My Favorite Things October Blog Hop!



Welcome to the My Favorite Things October blog hop! If you arrived here from Cindy's blog, you're right on track. If you just happened to stop by, be sure to hop back to the beginning, with Kim.

What do you think so far about all the new stamp sets that will be released tomorrow night? If you're the "gotta have it all" type, the One-Click Collection is for you. By purchasing it, you'll receive all of the new stamp sets AND the October Triple Scoop freebie! What is Triple Scoop? It's a new program that rewards you with a designated free set anytime you purchase three or more full size sets ($15.95 or higher). Want to know what the October Triple Scoop set is?? It's Here's the Scoop! To take advantage of the Triple Scoop program, just be sure to click the Triple Scoop "Add to Cart" button so you can receive your free set.

Next up, a few words about tonight's card: I love the image and this particular sentiment from the new set called A Balanced Holiday. Gosh, is this ever my wish for all of us as the holidays rapidly approach! I colored the image with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. The ornaments are stamped separately, trimmed out, and adhered with a glue pen. The color scheme is pulled from the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses patterned paper that I used. Some machine-stitching, buttons, ribbon, and glitter serve as finishing touches.

The next stop on the hop is JESSIE, who I know will have something absolutely delicious for us to drool over!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
