Hopping Along with Unity & CPC {Blog Hop}

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a wonderfully blessed Friday the 13th! No superstition here, could it be a bad day when you are playing along with Unity and Christian Paper Crafts? This month Unity Stamps is our awesome sponsor over at Christian Paper Crafts and I am so delighted that you are joining us on our very first blog hop!
The sets I have to show off to you today are Simple Blessings and Build a Turkey. I hope you enjoy!
Please remember to check back here at my blog (as well as the rest of the design team), over at SCS on the Unity Board, and of course at Christian Paper Crafts throughout the month for many, many more ideas with these wonderful sets!

This card was made with various "scraps" of paper I had lying around, and of course the Simple Blessings stamp set! This is quickly becoming of my favorite stamps sets ever! I love the pumpkins and let me tell you, the size will NOT disappoint you! Well worth the price! I loved adding the little buttons in along with the pearls. I reminded my husband it is because Jesus Loves Me just the way I am - unique!
This project used the wonderful Build a Turkey Stamp set and it was so much fun to create! What is it? - You might be asking... Well, it is none other than a conversation starter box for Thanksgiving! On each of the little "Turkey feathers" inside, there is a conversation starter question on the back, such as "Do you read the Bible?" or "Name 5 songs you know the lyrics to?" This could easily be a project that you include the younger members of the family in making and everyone gets to enjoy it! Another idea would be to make a "Blessing Box" for everyone to write what they are thankful for down, place inside, and look at it the next year!

Now for the prizes - There are 6 of us participating in the blog hop, so that equals 6 chances to win! There is one catch - each blog must have a minimum of 10 posts before it is eligible to hand out a prize. Christian Paper Crafts and Unity DT members are not eligible to win and our posts do not count toward the original 10 needed to give a prize! And what might those prizes be, why of course, it is a stamp set from Unity! The comments will close at midnight on Sunday and the winners will be announced on Monday morning on the individual blogs!
A very special thank you to Unity Stamp Company and of course to you for stopping by! You have made my day! If you have come to me from Cindy's page, then it is time to hop on over to Natalie at Delightful Details. If not, please click over to Cindy's page and check out her wonderful creations!
Here is the official hop order:
