Thankful with the Creation Station Blog Hop

Today kicks off my participation in The Creation Station Design and Blog Hop Team! I was beyond thrilled to be asked to join this group of talented women for a monthly blog hop to inspire you with creative top of the line projects with a theme from all around the globe! We hope that you hop thru each blog and leave comments as we all love to hear praise about our creations!
This first month we were to cover "thankful". I have much to be thankful, grateful, and blessed about!  I started out with a color combo that had been in my head. Very Vanilla, Basic Gray and the new mustard Delightful Dijon. From there, I just started pulling a few fall and "thankful" products to come up with two projects to show you today.

Few of my favorite things on the first project:
The Basic Gray splatter from Gorgeous Grunge stamp set on the Woodland embossed Very Vanilla Square Pillow Box. The mini acorn from the Into the Woods Elements. The Silver Glimmer Paper cut into the "grateful" from the Seasonal Frame Thinlits Dies.
Few of the my favorite things on the second project:
Again, the splatter in Whisper White Craft Ink on the Basic Gray Woodland Emboss. I then took the same splatter stamp with Basic Gray ink and smeared the stamp across some Very Vanilla cardstock. It makes it look like bark from the birch tree. I punched with the Acorn Punch. I mixed some winter touches even more in with the fall theme by adding the Snowflake Elements too. What do you think? Does it work? 

Thanks for stopping by my post for the Creation Station blog hop!
Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.
