Give Thanks

What can I say, I *heart* this turkey!!!

By now you know he is from the givethanks TAC stamp set. Colored with Prismacolor pencils and a blender pencil. I added 2 eyelets and jute to finish the sentiment. Card stock is Bazzill and background was "smooshed" with plastic wrap and Lautrec spot.

Until later~

More samples

Another Card kit sample. I think this one would make a great post card. I used the Give Thanks stamp set and the Mono pack of Yellow Oranges from Bazzill from The Angel Company. The corner punch is a new one I found over the weekend. And the ribbon was from a group buy I was in.

On both images I colored them using the Odorless Mineral Spirits method, with the Prismacolor pencils.

So, you don't make cards? Well, I have an 8x8 scrap book layout to share also. (And IRL the bottom is not crooked! LOL Why does my scanner sometimes make things look cock-eyed?LOL) I used the same stamps and papers, I added the Lautrec spots and Tombow markers this time- also from TAC. The tag I made using the MM metal rim and crimped with my Quickutz. The Bible verse completed this lay out that would be perfect for your fall or Thanksgiving pictures. (How cool would it be to use this lay out for a favorite Holiday recipe?!!?)

Finally, some cards to share!

I finally have some cards to share. I fell in love with this turkey the very first time I looked through The Angel Company catalogue. I knew I would be giving this little guy a loving home. I will be the first to admit that in real life the turkey is probably the ugliest animal I have ever seen. I remember taking Hunter to a petting zoo last year and he was terrified (kicking and screaming scared) of a huge, ugly turkey. I took him to pet the goats and he kept looking over his shoulder for that turkey. LOL Well, I don't think he would be the least bit frightened by this gobbler all decked out in his little Pilgrim hat.

The next card is a Gate fold card, my very first time making one of these. It was so easy, I have to ask myself why I haven't done one before now. The image is attached to only one side so that you can open it in the middle.
The Give thanks stamp set from TAC was used on both cards. I used the Yellow Oranges Mono pack of card stock. Both images were colored with Prismacolor pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits (OMS). I used my computer to print Psalm 100:4 for the inside. I am putting together a Card Kit for October featuring this stamp set.

Until later~

3x3 Card tote

Here is a little tote to hold those cute little 3x3 cards or tags. It was very easy to make, and I think it is just adorable. The stamp is Oopsie Daisy -a TAC set. I also used Matchmakers card stock, black card stock, Southwest corner punch, and Prismacolor Pencils from The Angel Company. I used grosgrain ribbon for the little handles.
I think I need to make a couple of these for hostess gifts.

I also want to remind you about the Remember September Special running through the end of the month.

I have been busy the last few days working on my swaps. I finished one for October Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is very pretty, once everyone gets this one I will post pictures. (I would hate to ruin any one's surprise.)
My Halloween swap is well under way. I tried something completely different with this one. It still needs a little tweaking, but I am excited to get this one sent out. I am really getting into this one- and I don't even like Halloween!! How funny is that?
Then I have a Christmas one- I have no idea what I am doing for this one yet!! Hopefully an idea will "just come to me!" LOL
I hope to have some pictures and ideas to share with you later. Tonight is momma's work night, I'll see what I can share with you.

*If you are reading this and have a blog of your own, please leave a comment and your addy so I can visit you!*

I'm still here

This is just a short note to let you know I am still here. I haven't been able to stamp for a couple of days. But I have been very busy- and now Hunter is completely potty trained. Can you believe he did it in a day and a half? He is going potty all by himself, as if he has always done it that way. It is funny, he goes in the bathroom and locks the door (I think to keep sister out.) I hear him in there and when he is done he says "Shake, shake, shake!" That child is too funny.

I am amazed at how fast TAC ships their orders out. I placed my order on Tuesday. Thursday was delivery day- all the way from Kansas! It is always fun to unpack the box and see all the goodies.

I just had to jump right in and make a non-traditional Christmas card.

I used a stamp set called Flamingo Christmas, and the sentiment is Holiday Liners. Image was stamped with Noir ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils. I matted it on black card stock, and then two layers of TAC's Matchmaker card stock. So, what do you think?

We are off today to celebrate Hunter's 3rd birthday!!! I hope you all have a great weekend.

Until later~
