Under the wire for challenges!

I’m squeaking in under the wire for posting up this weeks challenges!  I’ll do more in depth posts on the cards later.  The first card is inspired from StampInkPaper and their color challenge along with MojoMonday’s 425th sketch:MM425 SIP24 wm

Challenges:

SIP-Color-Challenge-24-800Mojo425Then I just loved the Freshly Made Sketches 214 and made this card:

FMS 214  card (1)

Sketch:

FMS Final 214-001I check out Simon Says Stamps, both their Monday and Wednesday Challenges.   Monday’s challenge is “Thank/Thanksgiving“.  This is also one of the Heart 2 Heart Challenges Give Thanks.  It actually works in the Heart to Heart Watercolor challenge too.  I was totally enamored with Andrea’s watercolor technique and samples (Her blog: Snapping Monsters) and created these two cards (along with about 10 others).  I had so much fun and now have very inky fingers!

Happy New Year and some sales….

I realize it’s not the New Year yet but our Stamp of the Month, S1511 Cheers 2016 is here! I made this simple card with the set:

Happy New Year card wm

I used the stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamps to create the base of the card.  Then stamped the cluster of stars in first and second generations.   Stamped the sentiment in the bottom right corner.

HNY 1 wm

Add some shimmer trim (love that it has the adhesive on it) and some black glitter paper.  A few colors associated with New Year celebrations from the song “Make New Friends”.  I popped up the panel with 3D foam tape.  I love the simplicity of the card.

The good thing about this set is the 2016 is not attached to any of the stamps so the set can be used for future years and other occasions.

Don’t forget about all the great Black Friday sales going on with Posh and Magnolia & Vine!  Check them out by clicking on the pictures below.  Both companies offer some great ways to pamper and spoil yourself or someone else.  They make great stocking stuffers!!

Happy Thanksgiving

A quick moment to say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, near and far!

peanuts thanksgivingWho doesn’t love Charlie Brown and the Thanksgiving Special?  It’s time to reflect on what one is thankful for.

Five orange pumpkins sit in a row in front of a distressed, wooden background.

I really am blessed to have all things things I have: God, family, friends, businesses, a house, food, clothes.  But most of all, I’m blessed to live in a country where I have choices beyond what I think.

thanksgiving2012

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.  May you be able to spend it in a way which you choose.

From our family to yours,
