Reverse Confetti World Gratitude Day Blog Hop


Well, FALL is finally upon us and REVERSE CONFETTI is celebrating the change of seasons along with a little known holiday.  Did you know that today is World Gratitude DayWorld Gratitude Day is your opportunity to show your gratitude and appreciation for anything or anyone in your life with meaningful actions.  To get you in the spirit of gratitude, the CONFETTI CREW has put together some fabulous creations with a “fall-ish flair” and a special “Gratitude Blog Hop”.


The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Val Stangle’s blog.  We hope you take a few minutes to enjoy what we’ve put together.  We want the gratitude to be contagious enough to inspire you to get creative and make something for someone you appreciate!


For my card, I used the new FOREVER FALL stamp set.  I just can't get enough of it.  Every time I stamp with it, I come up with new ideas and ways to use it.  I'd really love to sew twine around the edge of that heart!  In case I haven't told ya'll lately, I'm grateful for YOU!!  Thanks for reading my blog and joining me in Lilesland for all our crazy trials and tribulations.  It means a lot to me!!


We truly appreciate you hopping along with us.  In fact, to show our appreciation, we are giving away a $15 gift certificate to REVERSE CONFETTI to one lucky hopper!  Just leave a comment at each stop along the way to be entered to win!  You have until Monday, September 23rd at noon CST.  Jen will announce the winner on the Time for a Card Tuesday post on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 24th.  We want to thank you for welcoming REVERSE CONFETTI as your new favorite stamp company!

We hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of EVERY MONTH for more REVERSE CONFETTI inspiration! With me, you've reached the end of the hop.  Wasn't it FANTASTIC!?!? If you get lost along the way, you can always find the hop order and list of all the participating designers over on the Reverse Confetti blog.

SUSIE Q-TIP:  It used to totally not be "my thing", but I'm loving the addition of little tags on my cards here lately.  The last Reverse Confetti card I made had a tag on it, too.  This one is a little less conspicuous, but I love the look of it coming off the side of the card.  Neither of these are cut from a die or machine.  I've just cut them according to what size I need for the card, then snip the corners off and punch a hole.  Try it.
