MDS Blog Hop Friday

Hello Everyone -

I am sorry that I did not get a project made this week. We've had a lot on our plate (including a death in our family) so I have been a little off my game the past 2 weeks.

Please make sure to continue on the blog hop and see what the other gals have created for you this week! I promise to be back next Friday with a post for you!

Happy Thanksgiving to all...

Simple Snowflakes

Hello All...Happy Saturday!

I am getting ready for my November Christmas Card Club this morning. During the storm I missed 2 classes, so we are in makeup mode! I am excited to stamp with these ladies this morning. I have a rather large group and we break it up in to 3 smaller gatherings during the course of the month. It works great because they can pick and choose what date works for them each month. More flexibility is always a good thing when everyone is so busy these days!

Anyway here is one of the cards they are making this month. I just adore it because it is simple and easy!

It is simply Very Vanilla Cardstock, with the top layer embossed with the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder. Add a little glitter and some basic pearls...and it looks elegant! I then stamped the ornament in Soft Suede and punched it out I added some Vanilla Seem Binding Ribbon, and we are done! 

I hope you have a great weekend! 
Thanks for stopping by today!

Welcome back to another edition of MDS Blog Hop Friday! I hope you are all having a great week!
I am SO happy that Friday is here! What a long week!

We are finally getting back to our normal lives after that huge storm and 10 long days without power! How crazy was that? I was so sad the kids missed out on Halloween! And now we are just 2 weeks away from Thanksgiving! WOW!

This week, the theme is Remembrance. This is a great theme, because it can apply to so many things! A great vacation, a loved one, a pet....

I chose to remember my Great Grandmother! She was an AMAZING lady who came though Ellis Island when she was just 16 years old! In fact, her picture is IN the Ellis Island Building! Isn't that cool?
She lived to be 99 years old! I was 21 when she passed away and I was so fortunate to have known her!

My page is about her HANDS. She had the softest hands ever. Isn't it funny what we remember about people? I just remember holding those soft hands, and thinking I had never felt skin like that! I guess they get weathered and soft after 99 years!

Ok, enough blabbing... here is my page:

I wanted this to be a vintage feel, so I used the Bella Chateau DSP, and some fun button and flowers. I swear I am addicted to the Vintage Overlays stamp! It's what gives it the shading, so it looks like I sponged it. It's the last stamp I added - so its on top of all the other layers. I changed the color to Soft Suede, and viola! My project has a vintage feel to it! So cool!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!
Please make sure to hop along to the other ladies and check out their projects!

Holiday Stamp A Stack! Don't miss it!

Hello All! So sorry for being MIA -

We are finally back in business! Wow! What a storm! We lost power for 10 days! Isn't that incredible? The damage is just shocking. We ended up at a hotel from Thursday - Monday. And I am so happy to report our power came on yesterday! And today I did (no kidding) 10 loads of laundry! LOL

Anyway, I am busy getting ready for Stamp Clubs that were rescheduled and planning for our upcoming Stamp A Stack! This is a very popular event! Everyone loves to make their Christmas Cards!

Hello All...

I am unable to participate this week as we got hit with a bad winter storm here in CT. We have been without power for 7 days. We hope to have power back on Sunday.

In the mean time, check out the other blogs this week!
