You are on the CardSwaps Autumn Blessings Crop.   At the end of the hop, you are also invited to continue the fun over on the forum with more games, challenges, and prizes!  The crop is from November 16-19, 2011 and you have until November 22, 2011 to get your projects posted to the challenge threads and in the drawings for prizes.

The theme of this blog hop is I have been blessed.  Everyone has things they are blessed about and we have hostesses that are going to show and tell you what they are blessed about.

You should have arrived here from the talented Susan.  I have been blessed with getting to see Susan's wonder creations she has made whether it be a card, tag, or a lovely stick pin.  She has inspired me to try techniques that I probably would have never tried.  If  you didn't arrive here from Susan's blog, then you are going to want to start from the beginning at Lora's Blog.  You do not want to miss any of what these ladies have to show you.

I personally have been blessed in many ways.  My wonderful mom and dad that has always been supportive and encourages me to reach for my dreams.  Without them I don't know where I'd be today.  I have an awesome older brother who has always looked out for me even when we lived thousand miles apart.....even though he always give me the occasional nuggie.  :)  I have been blessed with a good job with the Federal Government helping our veterans that have served our country.  I have been blessed with many crafted friends as well!!  Thanks to them, I have stepped out of my normal craft comfort zone and they have shown me all different types of techniques and ideas for crafts and cards.  To them...Thank you but I'm still learning.  :)  I have also been blessed with may close friends that I don't know what I would do without them.  Whether we live in the same town or states away, we always know we care for each other and can always count on one another.  There are many other ways I'm blessed but we don't have the time on here....there is hopping to do.  :)

My card below is going to one of my friends that I'm blessed to have.  The flowers represent the time we need to take to "stop and smell the roses" or in this case flowers and maybe reflect on the things we are blessed to have in our lives.  Of course I had to add a stick pin from one of my crafty friends that I received from a swap.  :)

Next you are going to hop on over to Teresa will inspire you with her creations and how she is blessed.  Don't forget to leave a comment to show how much you enjoyed her blog.  I can't wait to see what Teresa comes up with.

If you get lost on the hop, here is the list where you can find yourself again. 

Thank you for taking the time to blog hop and hope you have enjoyed it.
