My big news!

Christening Gown  from Serendipity Stamps

  I have BIG news! 
 I am beyond excited and so very proud to have been asked to be on the Design Team over at Serendipity Stamps. This all happened so fast . There is an amazing group of very talented girls over at Serendipity Stamps.  I am so humbled and honored to be a part of the Design Team

I had this beautiful stamp in my collection , as some of you know I have a large family and the grandchildren keep coming. Serendipity Stamps has many stamps I needed and was in search of, like a Baptism stamp that I can use a s a baby card as well. 

This is the inside of the card, notice.. no.. pearls on the bonnet!

That is because it is a window card, the bonnet is only on the front window.

 I made this window card from one of the past MIM cards here. I needed another card for my daughters baby shower this Saturday . I used gingham so it will go with a tiny gift box that I made. I used Papertrey Ink - Layerz Mat Stack 1 Die and the original.  I cut out the bonnet used foam tape to adhere to the clear card stock andded a few pearls on the outside and then only on the dress on the inside of the card. The sentiment I bought as a cling set but you can get it separately if you like 
A New Addition and Christening Gown Lots of new things going on over at 
Serendipity Stamps, in December. 

Thank you so much for stopping by. Don't forget to stop in tomorrow for the 12 Kits of Christmas. 
There is going to be a prize!

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge

   This picture was taken at night , I know not the best lighting.
 Hi , I am so sorry about my last post . I was having a very hard time with it. 
 Well, its time for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge . I was so bummed I never found time to play last week.  I loved the sketch. 
I used StampinUp Snowflake it's the only one I have. 
I stamped my card with Chicken Wire from Waltzingmouse Stamps and Compliments of the Season
The paper is from Papertrey Ink : Vintage cream and Rustic Cream.

This weeks fun sketch is inspired by Jean Martin 

I thought I would share a picture of my youngest daughter Nancy and her sweet family. Nancy is due in about 4 weeks. I know none of my children look like me. When I used to take my three little girls somewhere people asked if I was the baby sitter. 
The boys cant wait for their little sister to get here.

Make It Monday Layered Vellum

Guess what's inside!

 This weeks video is by Melissa’s 

  I so…. should not be posting anything today. Like everyone else I have so much to do. But... oh well, I just decided to make some time to craft today. This little treat box will go on top of a shower gift for my daughter. Cant wait, soon I will be holding my 12th grandchild. Talk about blessings . This one will just lives down the street from us so I will get to see her often. The other ones are about an hour away , not too bad!
snowflake die is from StampingUp. Ribbon and paper is from craft store. You can see a bit 
that I also used a die in the center, but covered it up because it was too hard to place the snow
flake on the side. I added the tiny little socks and It will go on top of the gift. 

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in America! 
 Happy weekend to all .
God Bless you!

ColourQ and CAS-UAL Fridays

 I love the detail on the Vintage Garden - Produce
from Waltzingmouse Stamps

CFC78- Create a Clean And Simple project that has something torn on it.
Tear that cardstock, designer paper or even felt. Get creative and tear it up :)

  When I saw this card was going to be very clean and simple I decided to tear it up a  bit ...and enter
 it into the CASual Fridays challenge. 
 I used the colors given from colourQ challenge #163… . I even got my turquoise in by coloring a pearl with my Copic marker.   
I used my carrot stamp Vintage Garden - Produce from Waltzingmouse Stamps . I blocked off the bottom part of the stamp to make it green then re-stamped with deep orange. The sentiment is from Penny Black. All paper is from Papertrey Ink.
Thank you! 
                            May God Bless You!

wheel as my button.

 Hope you all had a nice weekend. We finally got some cold weather here and it was gorgeous outside.
 I put up the living room tree , I know its early but … only has the lights on for now. Not sure if I will decorate it now or wait until after Thanksgiving. 

I think the little Candy Wagon is going to be so versatile, cant wait to do it up in pink
 with candy. I know I  will be making many candy tags, to along with all the candy I make.  
I took the Thanksgiving from Joins Us and happy from  Say it Loud to make the sentiment.
 I hand cut the awning and the cart, adhered with foam tape
