Hey everyone. I’m so excited to be participating in the Seasons Giving Blog Hop again this year. This is the seventh year Latisha has so willingly put this blog hop together and I thank her for her generous time and effort. If you are new to the Seasons Givings blog hop, it’s all about thanking our readers for supporting us throughout the year. It also gives us a moment to reflect on the previous year and how we have grown in this paper crafting community and in our friendships. There are some amazing participants in this hop and a few of them I get to call my dear friends. Make sure to swing by each blog as there are companies and participants that are giving generous prizes away.
Reflecting on 2018 has been joyous as well as heartbreaking. I have shared some really get projects with you and had the phenomenal opportunities to work with some amazing companies. I have grown in my crafting and reached some very special goals that I can check off my list. I’ve also experienced some difficult times as I lost my Dad this year and my side kick Missy Girl (our beloved toy fox terrier). Throughout these difficult times, many of my crafting friends made the loss of my loved ones bearable and I can’t thank you enough. Your prayers for strength has helped me tremendously. As I look forward to 2019, I’m embracing change, new friendships and new adventures. I hope to take you along that journey with me here on my blog. Starting 2019 I am now at www.gotjoycreations.com instead of www.gotjoycreations.blogspot.com. You can still few older content on my blogspot but all new content will be here. I hope you will subscribe to my blog and continue to enjoy what I post. I made a card to ring in the new year. I used the Concord and 9th Notable Numbers stamp set and Ink On 3 gold rush embossing powder for my numbers and the Simon Says Stamp Mosaic star stencil for a pretty background for my card. I added a few white, gold and black sequin to finish off my card today.
For my giveaway today I have several stamps and dies I would love to share with one lucky winner. You can comment below for your chance to win from today through midnight (EST) January 5, 2019. One lucky winner will be contacted and an address will need to be provided. (Sorry only USA shipping for this giveaway).
Listed below are the participants and stores joining in this year. Grab yourself your favorite beverage and having fun along the hop. Thanks again for all your support and love in 2018. Can’t wait to see what 2019 brings for all of us.
Hugs to everyone and I’ll see you back here soon.
