Three Amigos October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos' October CTMH Mini-Blog Hop.  We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you.  On the 3rd day of each month, we will feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout or other project.  There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.
For this month's "Hop," we chose the "Always Grateful" Stamp set (C1559) which you can purchase for $13.95 on my website.  The images and sentiments in this stamp set make it the perfect stamp set for autumn and winter projects.  I decided to try something less seasonal with my card.

I used three strips of Sarita Textiles for the background, rounding the bottom of each strip and fraying the edges.  The burlap ribbon, color-ready seam binding ribbon, and rosewood mini-medley accents "hold" the background in place. 

The sentiment in the stamp set reads, "Today I am thankful."  I inked only part of the sentiment for my card using Saddle ink.

I used the new Vogue Alphabet (E1026) to create the sentiment inside the card and used a square of the Sarita Textiles to mat it.

Now hop over to Lisa's Blog and see what she has created to share with you!
