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

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!

  18. absolutely LOVE this card… right now I am most thankful God is playing such a huge role in my life and that of my family… my sis has been so ill for 6 another very bad thing happening, but….God is good! We will get thru it…and I am VERY thankful to have my husband (my ROCK!) to support me as he has gotten so little attention these last few months! He is WONDERFUL! of course we are blessed in many ways, so we are very thankful this season. Will get back to my scrap room once renovation is done and my sis is stable again. ty for a chance!

  19. I LOVE THAT DIE! I’m going to have to order one now! LOL thanks for enabling me! Haha love the card!

  20. I am most thankful for the patience & resolve my husband has shown this last year. Earlier in the year he experienced a work related injury, injuring his back. Surgery was unsuccessful and he has suffered daily ever since. Still, he doesn’t let it get to him. He takes it all in stride, hoping & praying for pain free days. Not sure I could be as strong as him with all that he’s been through. I’m thankful for my strong man.

  21. A few weeks ago there were big floods in our country and many people lost everything they had, so in that moments you learn to cherish every little thing you have, because you know there are so many in need out there. So I’m thankful for everyone that helped those who were affected by the disasters, it gave me hope that we can still find unity in these hard times.

  22. Unable to comment on the last link but they were gorgeous cards, as are yours loving seeing all the wonderful inspiration and greatful comments, I am blessed to have a wonderfully supportive husband and so many great supportive blogging friends
    hugs Kate xx
