  8. Oh come on..I've written down every stamp used!! lol Loved the blog hop & the unique ways the dt used QF stamps! I hope you'll have another one soon.

  9. Well, heck! I kept track of every single stamp used. LOL.

    All of the artwork was wonderful, and even though I was late for some of them, I enjoyed seeing them.

    I wasn't able to leave a comment on Monica's blog today since I didn't fall into any of the categories she has set to leave a message. So I'll just say it here:

    Monica, I loved your card and the idea of using the ornament. Thank you for the advice about doing a little at a time when embossing over a line from a VersaMark pen. I tried that once and made a terrible mess doing it all at once.

    Thank you to everyone!

  16. Suzanne -

    I want to extend my thanks to you and the Design Team for the Blog Hop. It was so much fun, learned lots of things and dropped my mouth numerous times when looking at the beautiful art. This was just as much fun as the online classes you host for us. Well except for all of us not waiting for the word "GO" when we play the games - LOL!

    Wishing all of you a safe wonderful Holiday - no matter when you celebrate Thanksgiving. I know our Canadian friends have already celebrated Thanksgiving.

    Thanks

Thanks for the fun!!!

  55. Suzanne ~ This Blog Hop was so awesome, fun, inspirational and interesting! I've never been involved with anything like this before and hope that in the future, you'll consider hosting another; perhaps for 'spring' or 'summer' themes. I learned so much from each and every designer; new techniques, ideas, etc. Thanks so much for this opportunity to be a part of your wonderful, talented artists, and also for the opportunity to be the 'grand prize winner' of your awesome stamps. Hugs, Sandi
