Good morning and Happy Hump Day! The weeks fly by so quickly lately that I don’t think of Wednesday as hump day. This is how I would describe a week… I start out on Monday sitting on a sled at the top of a snowy mountain. I really don’t want to start down the hill, but eventually someone gives me a giant push from behind. And so my sled starts traveling down the mountain and gaining speed quickly. By the time Friday night arrives I’ve been going at the speed of light for four days and I can’t stop the sled! It takes me two days to slow it down and then on Monday morning I’m magically sitting atop the mountain again waiting for that big push! *grin*

I’m sure y’all can relate to that picture, huh!? Especially as the holidays draw near! And speaking of the holidays, today I’m super excited to join our customers on a Blast from the Past blog hop with a Thankful theme. As Thanksgiving is literally right around the corner (or right down that mountain I’m traveling!) I thought it’d be a great time to show our thankfulness! I can hardly wait to see what the rest of the hoppers have created using their ‘older’ TE stamps! And as always, the fabulous Sankari has designed a sketch to give us a creative jump start. We’d love to have you join us on our next Blast from the Past blog hop. We’ll be taking a ‘holiday break’ for the month of the December, but we’ll make sure you have all the details to sign up in January! And maybe Santa will bring you some new goodies to play with before our next hop! 😉

The sketch that Sankari provides is optional and I’ll be filing it away to play with a little later. I decided to share a set of baby thank you cards that I made using the Welcome Little One stamp set. Unfortunately, I didn’t make enough of these and I’ve since resorted to sending store bought thank you cards for gifts we’ve received. (*gasp*) I’ve been hoarding this pretty patterned paper from the Cosmo Cricket Little Girls collection and decided to finally use it for these cards. I stamped and trimmed each of the icons and popped them up on foam tape. The inks I used are Olive Pastel, Rose Coral, and Warm Red. The sentiment is from Labels of Love. I used up ribbons from my stash and of course my Bow Easy helped me finish it off with the perfect little bow!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don’t miss the rest of the projects along the hop. I’m always blown away with the creativity!
