My Craft Spot Release Party Blog Hop

Today is the day we reveal the NEW My Craft Spot stamps!  Each day this week, My Craft Spot has been giving sneak peaks of the FOUR new stamp sets.  I gave sneak peeks from two of those sets - on Tuesday and Thursday.  Today, each design team member will share more projects made with the new stamp sets during this blog hop.  And each of the blogs will be giving away one of these new stamp sets - so be sure to hop along, starting with Kimberly at My Craft Spot.
I made two very different projects to share.  As many of you know, our house was flooded during a big storm earlier this month.  I made a set of thank you cards to show our appreciation to all those who helped us out (and continue to help us out!).  I used the new Friends and Neighbors - Inside and Out set for the sentiments.  The ark image is from the Inspired Hearts cartridge - and was just perfect considering our circumstances!  Paper is from My Mind's Eye and I added some Sky Blue crinkle ribbon (from My Craft Spot) for the water and to make a coordinating bow as well.
And here is the Friends and Neighbors - Inside and Out stamp set:

I used the new Happy Haunting stamp set for my second project - a fun Halloween gift bag! 
I used Wrap It Up for the bag, image and tag.  The other little sentiment tags were cut by hand.  I added some smokey black and deep purple crinkle ribbon from the Hocus Pocus ribbon collection at My Craft Spot.  I frayed the ribbon for a spookier look as well and ran the transparency used for the window through my Cuttlebug, using the Swiss Dots folder.  I also added a purple button (from a set given to me by my sweet friend Carri from DoubleClick Connections) and a bit of green embroidery floss as well.  Aren't the stamps so fun - and just perfect for Halloween crafting!
Do you see the fun MS Drippy Goo border?  I used Glossy Accents on the handle and border to add a bit more detail.
Here is the new Happy Haunting stamp set:

There are also two more stamp sets being released at My Craft Spot today - Candy Corn Kisses:

And Happy Fall:
These new stamps sets are all available today at My Craft Spot!  And don't forget that Kimberly offers free shipping to Canada and the US.  While you are at My Craft Spot, be sure to check out the delightful assortment of crinkle ribbon and baker's twine too!

***BLOG HOP PRIZE***

Kimberly has very generously donated her new Friends and Neighbors - Inside and Out stamp set for me to give away.  All you need to do is leave a comment on this post to be entered to win!  So easy - and so fun!  I will draw a winner at random on Tuesday.

I'm so sorry to hear about the house flood, but it really can be amazing of all those who come to help when times are tough. It was so thoughtful to make the thank you card for those who helped. I love the card, the ribbon for the water is so neat, and the way the card opens is so fun!!
Super cute gift bag, all the spooky details are so fun! :)

Wow your card will be love by your dear friends. How nice of your to send them out to all the people who helped you. God is so good to have blessed you a helping hand. The Friends and Neighbors stamp came at a perfect time.

I love your entire hunted house gift bag. You stated in your blog that you frayed the ribbon for a spookier look. Q: What did you mean by frayed.
