Fall is in the air!  Starting to get “nippy”!


Hope you have some time today to play!  My goal is to make someone Halloween treats!

#477 – Wishing You Well – September 20, 2018


This was one of our make and takes at the StampaStack last Saturday.  I also featured it on my Facebook Live last evening.   It uses the “Wishing You Well” stamp set (pg. 35 – Holiday catalog) and uses the “DistINKtive stamp” design.  If you look at the ribbon on the card above it almost looks 3-D, or like it was a 2-step stamp. It was one single image.

#147867 – Wishing You Well – $27.00 (Wood Mount)

This was a gift I received from Peggy Murwin and Tina Rappe for doing a short presentation at the Holiday Hoopla. Cute stationery card holder.

Today is…

“Back in the Day” it seems everyone had a punch bowl.  It was a thing.  My children do not relate to that at all.  I pulled mine out and loaned it to my family for my daughter’s bridal shower.  A good punch bowl is a walk back in time.  Great memories!!!

Do you have a punch bowl???
