Thanksgiving Blessings BLOG HOP

Welcome to Love4Stamps and the MY THANKSGIVING BLESSINGS Blog Hop! If you've come from Celeste's Blog at http://www.ccscards.blogspot.com/,
you're in the right place!

If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our hop, you can go to INKING IT UP CRAZY and start at the beginning.
The theme of this blog hop is MY THANKSGIVING BLESSINGS.  Each blog has created a project centered around the blessings they have had this past year.  Be sure to visit each blog for inspiration and fun BLOG CANDY.
 

I have to be honest, I am incredibly blessed. My life is such a gift and I am so thankful for it. I wanted to share with you all my favorite blessing...it is a continuous blessing and it gives more than I ever could have imagined!

MY FAMILY
2 other things I'm continuously blessed with are
a.) a full tank of gas (when so many don't even have a mod of transportation)
b. a refrigerator full of food (which brings good health and well being to my family and myself)
I tell ya it's the little things over here!!!!!!

 I was having trouble photographing it in the frame so I took it out but isn't it purty!
Its amazing what a $3.00 frame from Walli world can look like with some pretty paper!!!
 This is it outside of the frame.
 This crochet flower is one of my favorites. You can find these at http://www.etsy.com/shop/MirandagirlDesigns.
 Blessed was cut with Gypsy Font.

GIVEAWAY.

I'm going to be giving away a Cricut Dust Cover along with some surprise goodies to one lucky winner! If you win and you don't have a Cricut I'll send you some awesome stamps!

  6. Celeste told me to tell you hi! Funny girl... THank you for being part of this hop... The dollar store items like frames and votive holders look so much better jazzed up with fun paper and embellishments too! I have an expression... mine has a beautiful purple cover. I ordered it from someone off ebay a couple of years ago... it has a washed out purple felt with butterflies embossed in the felt... so pretty. I am the winner of the kricut pens a couple of weeks ago (Ravens Birthday) I got them in the mail... they look so fun! Cannot wait to try them. THanks again for having such a fun blog to follow. I was going to send a thank you... but I do not have your snail mail address... Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
