November Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop! This month we will be featuring the stamp set "A Little Thanks" that is available only during the month of November. If you have come here from Sheila's blog then you are on the right track in this big circle of a hop.

I chose to use this set to make some place cards for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. We usually sit together and each take a turn to talk about the things we have been thankful for during the past year. This year I thought it would be fun for everyone to write down their thoughts for a keepsake.

Supplies: Juniper cardstock, Veranda Creative Basics, A Little Thanks stamp set, Juniper ink, pearls.

Your next stop on this Blog Hop is to Beth's Blog. I hope you enjoy all the spectacular projects featured in this Blog Hop!

I hear wedding bells!

I am so excited! My cousin Brittney is getting married and I had the privilege of doing her wedding invites. She has awesome taste and chose a black and white design and a gorgeous sea green color.

I think they turned out really nice. She had shown me a photo of this design (sorry to the originator, I do not know your information) with the pockets for the reply card and a registry information on the side. It was very easy to put together. It is a tri-fold design and just tied together with a bow. I added these cute little flowers to give it a little something extra.

Well, I am a big Oprah fan and I have been taking a very close observation of the driving cars around me ever since she started the "NO PHONE ZONE". It is amazing how many people text and talk on the phone while driving. It is also pretty amazing how many of those people that you see that are talking or texting are the ones that are veering into the next lane, are sitting at the light not realizing that it has turned green, missing that stop sign, etc. I will admit I was once one of the guilty ones. I am a busy mom who needs every extra minute to get all the things done I am responsible for as many of us are. BUT that is not an excuse.

Please check out Oprah's website and do a little reading up. April 30th is National No Phone Zone Day and wouldn't it be awesome if we could add to the numbers that have already taken the No Phone Zone Pledge?

Please leave a comment and share your opinion. :)
