Gratitude with an Attitude Blog Hop

Welcome to the Gratitude with an Attitude Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop.  This month I am following  LaJeania Hicks.  Our blog hop is a circular hop.  You just click on the link to the next blog on the bottom of this post and go visit the next blog.  If you get lost, I have all of the participating blogs near the bottom of my post.  Hope you enjoy seeing what our team has made for you.

This month our Stampers With an Attitude is  featuring artwork showing gratitude.  When our team was deciding on a theme for this month's blog hop, I really thought that I would do something with a Thanksgiving theme or fall leaves.  I just love those colors.

However, I needed to design my Christmas card workshops.  I love unusual cards and I love to make them.  I found this adorable card and tutorial a few years ago and I wanted to make it.  It is a spinner card.  But I needed a gingerbread man stamp and Close to My Heart did not make one.  Instead I made a Halloween card with a bat that slid back and forth and was pretty happy with it.

But I was still hankering to make a gingerbread man spinner card.  Imagine my joy when I saw this new Close to My Heart Stamp Set!

Do you see the absolutely adorable little gingerbread man!  Woo Hoo!  I am in Heaven!  And here is my card:

Do you know what my gingerbread man does?  He rolls back and forth on my card as I move the card back and forth.  This gives me such great joy.  It really is fun to play with.  I am guessing it brings the child out in me.  Anyway, for that I am grateful!

I used the Sparkle and Shine paper pack for this card.  I played and played around with the top piece and was just not satisfied with the patterned paper so I decided to make my own.  The top piece is put together with our Sparkle and Shine Washi Tape and Silver Glitter Trim.  I just love how happy and cheery it is.

  1. You're wonderful for arranging this, Melinda. You're such a patient teacher and I am grateful for that! I'll be watching your tutorial today.

  2. He's so cute Melinda. I think your right, the gingerbread man reminds me of making the gingerbread houses with my kids. So many memories and such fun. Love what you did with the top of the card. Great project. Thanks for sharing.

  3. What a super cute card! I need to find out how to make those :)
