Welcome to my blog. I would like to create a place where I can share my love of crafts with you. I started paper crafting in August of 2011. I just had my one year anniversary. I love making cards, doing scrapbook pages, creating flowers, quilling and many other crafts. I found out about greeting cards when watching a Stamp TV video a few months later. I am hooked on card making now. Love everything about it. I hope that you will join me in my love of crafts.

WELCOME TO THE OCTOBER “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.
