Kylie's Top Ten International Highlights Winners Blog Hop October 2021

 Hello and thanks for visiting!  Today is an exciting day for me!  I've just learned that my thank you card entry into Kylie's  October International Highlights Gallery received 104 votes - wow thank you all so very much for voting for my card!  It is a great privilege to join the Winners Blog Hop!  Enjoy the inspiration!  Click on the blog hop list at the end of this post.

The theme for Kylie's blog hop is Thanks and Encouragement, and what's more encouraging than a hug of support for those going through tough times.  And a card is really a hug with a fold in the middle, right :)    Eden's Garden  is a beautiful new collection of products coming in 2022.  Stampin' Up!® often spoils us with a sneak peek and early release of fun new stamps and papers.  As demonstrators we were able to order the products and begin creating with them this month.  And starting in November customers can order them too!

In November, I'll be offering a 'Card Kit To Go' using his awesome suite of products, so stay tuned.  Please click on my newsletter tab at the top to receive information about this card kit at the start of November.  I think it's a versatile suite of products that can be used for Christmas cards as well!
