Blessings This Christmas

with Dawn

Happy Fall to you all!
I couldn't wait to play along and create a card for Make it Monday.
Dawn has a fun video sharing how she mixed floral sets to 
to create one card. 

I used five stamp sets to create this Christmas card. What looks like
pine needles is rosemary.
I think I might need some Christmas florals, I don't have any.

Kitchen Fall Table 2017, with a few of 
the pumpkins from my collection.

 This was so much fun! Nothing quick about it though, going through many sets, to see what would work for my cluster.

 God bless! 

Simon Says: Pop It Up
I love popping images up on my cards!

A New Puppy & Christmas Tag

Create Along With Us: September 2017
I wanted to share our new puppy with you here on my blog, for those of you who don't do Instagram. 
This is Lucy, she is as sweet as she looks! Its like having a newborn and I am so tired
but worth every bit of tired.

I was inspired by Dawn's beautiful tags.

 My tag turned out a little busier than I would have liked but decided to post it anyway. 

Thanks for the visit today! 
Keeping all of you that were in the path of the storm in my contained prayers.

All Those Golden Leaves

Hello and Happy September to you! 
My goodness time is going by so quickly!

 Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps Hop !

 I turned the stamp over and colored it in with zig brush pens then spritzed with water, using a MISTI I was able to sections at a time, grass , trunks and upper tree!. It looked beautiful but I kept adding a bit more leaves once the image was stamped. I would spritz with water and blend with a water-pen.
After stamping and embossing the sentiment I decided to make a few embossed leaves, with a versa mark pen. I maybe, should have stoped because my leaves look a bit like teardrops. I wish I would have taken pictures in stages but it was already dark. 

One of my favorite tv shows is Little House On the Prairie, one of the reasons I love this quote by
 Laura Ingalls Wilder. 

What a fun stamp image with so many possibilities! Link below.

Butterflies in Flight

Hello again! Another quick post with the card I made , totally inspired by Laura Bassen!

I loved Laura's card with leaves and knew right away I wanted to use this  Bitty Butterfly Die.
1st Anniversary Tradition, Paper
 - with Laura Bassen

5th Anniversary Tradition, Wood
- with Lizzie Jones
If you look closely you can see I use the woodgrain plate.

I am on the fence if this is just a bit too busy or not!
Maybe I should have used just a bit less butterflies?

God bless Texas and all in the path of the storm.

More Stamp-a-faire 2017

Hi there! Still praying for all those suffering from the results of the hurricane! I am so sorry!

I was all set to have time to myself then the kids called and asked if we wanted to spend the day with them at the beach....of course we said yes! It's very rare that my DH and I would ever turn down a chance to be with our kids and grandchildren! 
I have been under the weather but a day at the beach with family is just what I needed.
