A Grateful Heart


Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Birthday Blog Hop!  




I'm honored to be joining an amazing group of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps design team members past and present, along with some special friends in this fabulous Birthday Blog Hop to kick off a whole month of fun. We have 36 stops so the hop will take place over three days - feel free to take your time visiting each blog!  You have until 11:59pm EST November 9th to leave comments on as many blogs as you can.  On Saturday, November 12th Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps will announce FOUR winners(chosen at random from comments on random stops along the hop); each lucky winner will receive a prize pack including stamps, dies, paper & twine valued at $40! 


If you have been following along already you should have come from Stephanie's blog.  If you are only starting here, please head back to the SNSS blog and go from there.  You won't want to miss any stops along the way!  Also, don't forget to comment on as many stops as you can....the more comments the better your chance of winning one of the fabulous prize packs! :)


I decided to use one of my favorite Sweet 'n Sassy stamp sets, Autumn Bounty for my card.  I love this vase of autumn flowers, with that pumpkin tucked in with it...
