Welcome to the DeNami Thoughtful Thank Yous Blog Hop




Welcome to the DeNami Thoughtful Thank Yous blog hop,  I am so excited to be participating!!  If you are coming here from Melisa's blog you are on the right path...if you stumbled into the hop along the way you'll want to start at the beginning and not miss any of the fantastic projects along the way; start HERE.

My project features the adorable Mimi with Dogs stamp.  She is just fabulous!  I colored her with my Copics and added chalk to add depth to the colored image.  I then used a few of my favorite Spellbinders dies to add some accent colors to the stamped piece.  I covered my card base with this wonderful pattern paper from Cosmo Cricket.


I have so much to be thankful for and on this Veteran's Day.  I am especially thankful for those that have and continue to serve our country in our military.  Being the spouse of a retired Military officer with twenty years of military service, I am so thankful to him for all that he did to keep this country safe and ensure the liberties we enjoy.  Thank you Lt. Cmdr Lindley you are such a wonderful example of duty, honor and commitment to our children.

I hope you have enjoyed the hop thus far...you'll next be traveling to Deb's blog to see what fantastic project she has created for you.

Oh...before you go...be sure you leave a comment on all the blogs along the way for your change to win a gift certificate for $20 to the DeNami website.  You have until November 12, 2012 11:59pm PST, to leave a comment on all the blogs to be eligible for a prize.

Happy crafting...Lynda
