Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop - September

Hi everyone, bit of a long time between blog posts for me, whoops! 

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop for September. This month our theme is the Thankfulness as it is our last hop for the Mediterranean Trip. Next month those that have earned the trip to Thailand in 2017 will be hopping each month. 

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog (Bec Ross) or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. 

I have a lot to be thankful for in my life - a happy and healthy family, a fun job that takes me on awesome holidays, loads of wonderful friends I've met through my time as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator... lots be grateful for.

I'm super grateful to have wonderful demonstrators in my team who are also enjoying their hobby and businesses.  This past week I sent out some extra little" thank you"s to them.  Without them I would not have achieved my goal of earning the 2017 Grand Vacation to Thailand!  

I sent them some of our super cute Metallic Enamel Shapes and a little thank you note. I used Petals & Paisleys DSP for the striped accent pieces and the stamp comes from the "Better Than Email" stamp set in the Annual Catalogue.

Another thing I am grateful for is how easy Stampin' Up! makes my life!  I love all of our kits for when I need cards in a hurry or don't feel like making up my own design.  
Designer Tin of Cards is pretty cool - I love how simple they are to make.  
I always need Thank You cards and often need them made in a hurry so I copied the Thank You card from the kit! Can you spot the difference??

The top one is my copy, the bottom one is from the kit.  I simplified by leaving off the embellishments but I think it still looks pretty good!  I've used the Moroccan designer series paper and the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set to complete the look.

Thank you for visiting my blog - I'm grateful for your visit!  I look forward to sharing more with you soon as I get back into the blogging habit :-)

What a sweet idea. Love it! Also the cards. The color coordination is awesome!

Can't tell the difference between your cards (except for the extra embellishment!) That's what makes this great - we can each do what we need/want/like and it's all good! Thanks for sharing!
