Grateful Freaks!

Hi stampers!  How can it be time for a Control Freaks blog hop already?

Wasn't it just September????  Anyway, this month's theme is gratitude and I'm so grateful for all my stamping friends and my little hobby!  Speaking of great stamping friends, you may have just come from Cindy's blog where you saw her awesome projects!  Don't worry if you didn't, we make an endless loop so just keep clicking and you'll get all the way around!

My first project uses acorny thank you, which tends to get overlooked since it's in the main catalog.  I combined it with the sweater DSP because it's awesome and I love cozy sweaters in the fall!  The top of the acorn is also embossed in copper.  I pressed the whole thing into my versa mark pad and then heat set it.

I also made a Thanksgiving card.  I love Thanksgiving!  Who doesn't love family and food????  I recently bought some felt balls to make a garland for November and thought the colors were perfect for a card!  I used cherry cobbler, cajun craze, pumpkin pie, tangerine tango, and delightful dijon.

You may need to click and enlarge this one.  I used an embossed a strip of vanilla CS with the woodland folder so it's tone on tone and hard to see here but it looks cool!  I also totally forgot about Teeny Tiny Wishes still being current, ha!  So after using it for some Halloween cards I kept it out for the sentiment here!

And now it's time to keep hopping.  You're off to Amy's blog to see her fabulous projects!

Happy stamping!


  1. Fantastic projects Mindy! I love your little fox for Thanksgiving and the acorn image works perfectly with the designer paper. Sweet! :)

  2. Love the warm fuzzy feeling of the acorn and that little fox is darling!

  3. I like the way you used the label to spotlight the acorn; really makes it pop! And the color combo on the fox card is so rich, just beautiful!

  4. Fabulous cards, Mindy! I love the subtle embossed background and the colors on the fox card. The first card really just screams warm, cozy, and Fall.

  5. Love the fall warmth of your cards! Thanks for sharing!!!


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
