Simon Says Stamp Gratitude Blog Hop… Video + Discount Code + Giveaways!

Hello! Today I am part of the Simon Says Stamp Gratitude Blog Hop. Simon Says Stamp is made up of such good people. And today demonstrates that – they are giving readers a discount code for 35% off and are also making a donation to the charity of a lucky winner’s choice! Oh, and I threw in a crafty giveaway, too. Awesome, huh? Keep reading…

It is an honor to join several of my friends and fellow crafters in creating cards of gratitude for this blog hop. After all – I am so very thankful for the people I have met through cardmaking. And a big thanks to Simon Says Stamp for hosting and supporting it!

Here is video of my card creation. I love making holiday thank you cards…

It features an stamped acetate window that shows through to the inside…

And a message could be added to the snow bank inside…

All of the supplies are listed in the thumbnails below. My favorites? The fluff background stamp, the diagonal lines embossing folder and the thank you greeting stamp set

I have TWO giveaways. The first is one that I think is the best kind ever. Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 donation to the charity of a commentator’s choice. Just leave a comment with what you are most grateful for and you will be entered in the drawing. After the winner is chosen, Simon Says Stamp will be in touch with you to find out the charity you have chosen. A winner will be picked at 11:59pmEST on 11/28. Good luck!

Also, I have some extra goodies that need a good home. So another lucky winner will receive these presents…

There’s more! The next stop in the Simon Says Stamp Gratitude Blog Hop is my sweet friend Sarah Moerman. (You can always head to the Simon Says Stamp blog to start the hop again.) Be sure to stop everywhere along the hop. Each person will be giving the $50 for a charity!
