Hope you can stop on by.
This week at Stampin’ Sisters in Christ the challenge is to make a Thanksgiving card. Well I can do that! There is so much in my life to be thankful for. A few years ago I read a blog post in which the author expressed her “Joy of Laundry”. I thought it was so touching. She realized how ” rich I really am and I am thankful. I feel guilty for the decadence of normal and the sweet indulgence of doing laundry.” Here is Janice’s entire post. It is a wonderful heartfelt post, and helped me to realize, too, how blessed I am just for “normal”.
I hope that everyone has a joyous day.

Just a quick post today. I played along in the Inspiration Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers. The inspiration website aimoobaroo has the most darling buttons many of which have little faces of children or animals. The website inspired my cards today, in general, and not any specific button or button grouping.
I love these little Inchies!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Yup, I’ve been playing in the CLASSroom and having so much fun! Come on over and check it out!
For the last couple of weeks I’ve needed to make a wedding card. In the past, I have always used the invitation to help with the direction of the card. But with this particular invitation, I was having trouble figuring out a starting point.
In looking through the Jonathan Adler website (yesterday’s Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoaststampers), I found these cute little fish salt and pepper shakers. And the fish scale pattern on the box looked like scallops. It finally came together!
This darling couple is one of Flourishes images from their “Wedding Party” set. They have the sweetest faces!
I love the challenges over on Splitcoaststampers!

Recently while reorganizing my stamp room I came across a darling little stamp set that Kittie Caracciolo (Kittie747) sent me some time ago. I realized that I had never used it and knew that that had to be remedied immediately!
This fun Martha Stewart Picket Fence Edger Punch seemed a perfect place to start. After weaving the fence with some narrow stitched grosgrain ribbon, I scored two lines across the bottom and added a strip of dimensional tape before folding it over. This gave a platform for adhesive to adhere it to the card while also popping it up!
The birdhouses were colored with Copics. Two of them were also popped up on different thicknesses of dimensionals.
Check this out! The ladies over at Stampin’ Sisters in Christ gave me this! Isn’t is pretty!
Thanks so much! I hope to be able to play in many more of their wonderful challenges.
