Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Wine-Down Wednesday.  My middle of the week card feature for today will hopefully offer you some inspiration and provide you with some motivation to keep you moving through your busy week.  Let's jump right in with my card share for today........
This BEAUTIFUL card is dedicated to my BEAUTIFUL family.....
Who are in both Wisconsin and Missouri.
I can not be with them this Thanksgiving......
And will MISS them and all the SHENANIGANS 
that go along with being part of my AMAZING family!!!!
I started this card with an Early Espresso base card.  I added a panel of Cajun Craze and the several addtional layers on top of that.  At the bottom section of my card......I added a panel of 'Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper.
And then stamped my sentiment from the 'Banner Year' set with Early Espresso ink onto the Very Vanilla card stock panel in the upper left hand corner.  After I had that sentiment stamped ...... I ran that card stock panel through my Big Shot using the 'Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder'.
My leaf die-cut pieces were created with the help of the 'Stitched Leaves Dies' and I topped that cluster off with a pretty bow created from the 'Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim'.
So there you have it friends.....
Tell me what you think!!!

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow with a Tag Thursday creation to share with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Thanksgiving Mailbox Gifts

Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is a special Thanksgiving treat that I made for my neighbors and friends in SaddleBrooke.  These little Turkey treats are SO EASY to make.......And (almost) all the product was pulled from the 2020-2021 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog.  Let's jump right in with my share for today........
These little trail mix turkey treats just couldn't be any more ADORABLE.......And EASY to create.  I found the idea on Pinterest.......And created my own version with the product I had on hand.   I made several Tom Turkey treats........And also a Pilgrim treat holder (which I will share with you at the end of this post).
I started this project off with a  clear 'Acetate Card Box' and chopped the box in half.......Which meant I was able to get two treat boxes from one card box.
I used the 'Stitched Leaves Dies' to create the turkey feathers ...... And the ADORABLE little face was created using circle punches.
I filled my treat boxes with some sealed Trail Mix ...... and used our 'Clear Envelopes' to seal those treats up.
And here's the DARLING Pilgrim treat holder.
Don't you just think these are SUPER FUN.......
Tell me friends......Do you have a favorite????

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a really SPECIAL Thanksgiving card with you ....... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Warm & Toasty Reindeer With Bow

Happy Monday My Blogger Friends! 
Today, I have a fun little Holiday card to share with you.  I used product from the 2020-2021 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog as well as the 2020 Stampin' UP! Mini Holiday Catalog to create these projects.  Hope you enjoy my Monday card project for today.
Just couldn't be happier with the way this card turned out.
I started out with a Real Red base card ....... And then added a panel of the 'Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper' to the top of that base card.  To add some fun texture to my DSP panel ..... I ran it through my Big Shot using the 'Winter Snow Embossing Folder'.
My sentiment was stamped from the 'Warm & Toasty set.........
And before I adhered down my DSP panel ..... I wrappd some 'Real Red 3/8" Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon' around the DSP panel and tied it up into a pretty bow on the left hand side.
My little Reindeer is from the 'Warm & Toasty' set ...... And I used my 'Stampin' Blends' to color that little CUTIE in.
This is one of those Holiday cards that just makes me HAPPY!!!

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a 3-D Tuesday creation with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Warm & Toasty Reindeer

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends
Today.......We continue with our Holiday card and project post in place of my normal Spotlight Sunday post.  Today, I'm going to share a Holiday cards that I created using product from the 2020-21 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog as well as the 2020 Stampin' UP! Mini Holiday Catalog.  Hope you enjoy my Sunday card project for today.
One of my FAVORITE stamp sets in the 2020 Holiday Mini Catalog is hands down this ADORABLE little Reindeer.
I started out with a Mossy Meadow base card ..... and then layered a Whisper White panel onto my base card.  I used a panel of 'Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper' and adhered that to the top of my Whisper White panel.  
Before I adhered that Whisper White panel down.....I stamped my sentiment from the 'Warm & Toasty' set at the bottom (with Mossy Meadow ink).  And then wrapped some 'Real Red 3/16" Braided Linen Trim' just above the stamped sentiment.
The ADORABLE Reindeer was stamped from the 'Warm & Toasty' set onto a Whisper White 'Layering Circle' die-cut piece.  I also die-cut a Real Red layering scallop circle from the 'Layering Circle Dies' and layered that behind my Whisper White Circle.
So what do you think my friends???

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share another Holiday card with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

JOY Card

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Paper Pumpkin Saturday ........... And I would like to share with you the project I created using the Joy To The World Paper Pumpkin kit.   Here's that project.......
I had so much FUN creating this card.
I started out by cutting up one of the envelope liner that was included in this kit ...... And I created two panels for the front of my Whisper White base card.
I added a Whisper White panel to the center of this card ..... And before I adhered it down, I wrapped some of the Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine (that was included in this kit) around the top and tied it up into a pretty bow.
My sentiment piece was stamped onto a Whisper White 'Layering Circle' die-cut piece ..... and then layered it with a Cherry Cobbler scallop circle.
I added three of the little flowers that were included in this kit around the outer edges of the Whisper White circle......
And used some 'Fine Tip Glue Pen' to gloss up the center of all three flowers.
Just couldn't be happier with the way this card turned out.
What do you think????

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a Spot Light Sunday card with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Friends Friday Pics

Happy Friday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Friends Friday.  On Friday's, I have the honor of spot-lighting some of the fabulous cards and projects that I received from Friends ....... Fellow Demonstrators ........ and Family.  Each of these creations are works of art........and it is with great pleasure that I share with you today some AMAZING projects that five very special peeps made for me.
First up for today is this HILARIOUS card that I received from my dear Scissors friend Donna Fritz.  Both Jack and I just HOWLED when we opened up her card......She is one dear friend.
Next up is this GORGEOUS card made by my sweet Scissors friend Terry Olson.  My heart was touched when I opened this card.  Terry.....You mean the world to me.  THANK YOU!!!
How FABULOUS is this card made by Jan Gore.
 
And speaking of Jan Gore ....... She surprised me this past week and dropped off this SUPER AWESOME Blessing Mix.  It's missing a few ingredients ..... because Jack got his hands on it before I could click a picture of it (he may be 87-years old......but he is QUICK).  By the way Jan ........ It was DELISH.

Happy Christmas

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Tag Thursday.  Today, I will feature a tag I created and show you how easy it is to use minimal supplies to create a SUPER PRETTY TAG.  Now that you have the details for my Tag Thursday creation for this week ........ Let's jump right in with my tag share for today........
How HOLLY JOLLY filled is this Christmas tag!!!!
I started out with a Whisper White base tag and then added some 'Trimming The Town Designer Series Paper' to the bottom.  I was able to get the perfect banner flag for the bottom of my tag by using the 'Banner Triple Punch'.
Next, I stamped my sentiment from the 'Warm Hugs' set onto a 1/2" piece of Crumb Cake card stock ..... I used VersaMark ink and 'White Embossing Powder' to create that sentiment.  To finish that sentiment piece off......I used my 'Paper Snips' and cropped out a banner flag on both ends.
My Real Red circle button for the top of my tag was created with the 'Wrapped in Christmas' set.  And I used VersaMark ink and 'White Embossing Powder' to create some great texture for that little button piece.
To finish off my tag ....... I grabbed my 'Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon' along with my Poppy Parade Stampin Blends and created the perfect coordinating ribbon for this tag.
My finishing touch was using my Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends on five of the 'Snowflake Adhesive-Backed Embellishments and added those to the front of my tag.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share some Friends Friday creations with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
