Creative Inking Blog Hop — With Gratitude Saying Thanks Creatively

Hello stamper and crafter friends! Welcome to my crafty spot (Stampin' Dreams) on the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of October! This months theme is geared around Saying Thanks Creatively and with Gratitude!  I have been on a Halloween-crafting-craze for the last couple of days, and getting to play with new products from the Holiday catalog has been so much fun!  I'm like a little kid in a candy store..oh, wait!  Isn't that like Halloween?!!  haha! l can't wait to share my creation with you!  :)


You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Colleen Vassos' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop. If you get off track at any time, the full line up below will help you move along from blog to blog.


When I first saw the Country Home stamp set in the Holiday catalog, I knew that it was a 'must have' set because of this milk can image.  When I was a kid, I remember there were a ton of these things stacked in a separate room in my grandma's barn.  Over the years, the Opossum claimed them as their little homes, but this image brought back lots of great memories.


Because of the size of the image, I thought it worked well to create a Gate-fold card.  The Chicken Wire Element was another 'gotta have it' item, plus, it's another family memory of all the chickens we had raised over the years.  I watched many soft, fuzzy baby chicks grow up to be hens laying eggs and providing food for us.  The images render coloring, so I got some practice time in with my Stampin' Blends...it had been awhile.  GASP! 



I love to decorate the inside of my cards by bringing in elements from the front to the inside.  The Mint Macaron trim is a die cut from the Falling For Leaves Thinlits set.  I hope you'll give this fun Country Home Suite of products a whirl.  The Country Lane Designer Series Paper is amazing!



From the bottom of my heart, many, many "thanks" to you for you stopping by to visit me.  I love the visits and wonderful thoughts you share with your comments.  It is always my passion to inspire you with my papercrafting projects.  I hope I have peaked your excitement to get your dreams stamped out onto paper using some of the products that I have shared with you.  I truly live to inspire!! But, if you want to become a "Happy Shopper" and get all of your favorites on your wish list at a discount, you can purchase the Starter Kit and join my Stampin' Up! family...fill your Starter Kit with what YOU want (up to $125 worth of product)!  How exciting is that?!!   I am always very, very appreciative of your shopping excursion through my online store, too.


So with one click you can be on your way to soak in some more inspiration showcasing the assigned sketch.  Your next stop on the hop will be with Dena Rekow.  I know her projects will not disappoint...she'll have a beautiful creation to share with everyone. Click on the 'Next' button and you'll be at your next stop.  Have fun filling your inspiration bucket...don't forget to come back real soon.  :)
