Merry Wishes to you for a peaceful & joyful December!

This month I’ve used Everything Eleanor for the background.  I used the “kissing technique”.  I first stamped the image with Crumb Cake, then stamped some trees with Garden Green DIRECTLY ONTO THE STAMP!

Other stamp sets:  Festival of Trees & Oh, What Fun!

Fun Fold for Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Today, like most of you, I’m busy getting ready for the big day.  Along with working.  We have a new kitchen!  Just got the sink & dishwasher a few days ago…never been so excited to do dishes!

I’ve been playing around with this Fun Fold Card lately- called a Pop Up Panel Card.  It’s so much fun to make & really a surprise when opened!  I made a Thanksgiving Card using Moroccan Designer Series Paper.  The colors are gorgeous and remind me of fall.

I used a 1 1/2″ belly band to close this card & love the way the Layering Circles Framelits cut out this medallion.  Here’s the inside:

INKspiration Challenge #SSINKIC39

Thanksgiving is coming up soon!  One of my favorite holidays!!  My girls will be far away…but Pat & Mom are here and I’ll have a new kitchen!  Yea!  I’ve been doing dishes in the bathtub for over a month & eating take-out, so I’m ready to cook an amazing meal for Thanksgiving!

Here’s today’s challenge photo for Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration:

I work for a podiatrist and he asked me to make bags for the doctors & nurses that refer to him.  Such a great idea, I think!  It’s special to commemorate Thanksgiving and “Being Thankful” for our blessings.

Here’s one of the bags (they’re all a bit different!)
