Happy Thanksgiving

I had a few minutes to myself this afternoon and I decided to make a quick Thanksgiving card to send off to my mom and sister (they are spending the holiday together in California at my sister's house).

The Gently Falling stamp set is in the Holiday mini. I used More Mustard, Pool Party, Soft Suede, and Early Expresso for the ink colors and with the Very Vanilla paper it gives it a nice warm touch. The scallop trim is from the Tastful Trim Die and the embossed portion is the Stripes Embossing Folder.

Hope you all enjoy the card that popped into my head today. I sure enjoyed making it. to the mail box it goes!

Happy Stamping!

Christmas Time is Coming Fast!

I really have to show you guys this awesome Advent Calendar that I made up. The idea to do an advent on a muffin tin is nothing new, but I guarantee you will NOT find anything like this out there.
It is a labor of love...takes tons of time and effort...but so worth it! I am so proud of it. I made the first one and took it to my upline, Max, to show it off and she loved it so much I ended up making her one too. Then, this great idea came (thank you mom!) to make one for my sister for Christmas too. So, this is the 3rd one that I have done in the last week or so.

If uses lots of punches, The Big Shot, lots of various dies, Holly Berry Bouquet DSP from the mini catalog right now, and some very fun the new 25 & Counting from the mini catalog that just screams "make and advent out of me!" So I did. :)

Hope you guys like it. If you need Christmas cards, Holiday cards, birthday, thank yous, or any other type of greeting or specialty item...shoot me an email and I will see what we can work out.

Happy Stamping!


Where did Fall go?

The title of this post is my every day thoughts now. Where on Earth did Fall go? I feel like we just started back to school and now we are half way through November. Where did October and November go to? Please come back. You are one of the best times of the year!

I guess I just have to suck it up and realize that time is done on my watch....wait, I don't even wear one. Sorry about the blog lapse. I will try harder. I have some really cute Holiday stuff to show you guys....if you are still out there in blog land reading.

Happy Stamping!
