Our Final Farewells

The old saying reminds us that all good things must come to an end. TAC has released it's retiring stamps list, and there are a couple on there I am surprised to see go. I love flamingochristmas!!! I know a few sets are still on my wish list. If you see something here you would like to get before it's gone contact me and we can place an order.

The final day to order these will be December 28th. If you prefer an email copy, just let me know, I would be happy to get one sent to you.

Until later~

Halloween Card

If you know me very well, then you know that I am not into Halloween. I can honestly say that it is my least liked holiday. I guess I just don't "get it". LOL

Well, I joined a swap for Halloween cards. I am glad that I did. I got back some amazing cards. And I also bought what I think is the cutest Halloween stamp set. The set is called you'reatreat from TAC. Sadly enough, it will be retiring at the end of the year.

Here is my swap card. I was going for a treat bag look- do you think I pulled it off?LOL

The paper used is Simply Spooky also from TAC- and also retiring at the end of the year. I used Prismacolor pencils and Noir ink.

I will be posting the retiring list from The Angel Company this week. There are some very nice stamps retiring this year.

Until later~

It is just me and the kiddos this week, HB is out of town. I can honestly say I have a lot of respect for single moms. My kids have been good this week, well, as good as a 1 year old and 3 year old can be. LOL

This is a card I made to send to the ladies that came to my sister's FUNshop. I used Sarah's October card challenge on Paper Wings. Don't you love the layout? It has so much potential. I am gonna have to play around with this one some more. =)

Well, I am off to finish up some swaps. (Which reminds me, I got back some Halloween ones. I will share later.)
Until later~

Here is a couple of samples using Pumpkins from The Angel Company. I have an 8x8 layout. I can't wait to get a pumpkin patch picture of the kiddos to put in that one. I paper pieced the pumpkins. (I stamped the pumpkin out line onto my designer collection paper and cut them out. I then placed them on my lay out where I had stamped the same image with the noir ink.)

Here are a couple of 3x3 gift cards using the same stamp set and papers. I only used the face stamps on these to make cute little ghosts. One of these cards would be a very sweet addition to a basket full of goodies for your favorite goblin this Halloween.

Until later~

FUNshop layout

FUNshop Saturday was my first FUNshop. A big "Thank you" to my sister for hosting. {Hello Bob.} I had such a great time. I had planned on doing something for each of the seasons. I kinda over did my designs for my time. We did complete 3 projects, and I promised to bring the other one back next time.Here is my "Summer" project-
It is an 8x8 Layout using The Angel Company's Oopsie Daisy stamp set. I used the Cardstock stack (brights), Prismacolor pencils, blender pencil, the silver eyelets were set with the Crop-A-Dile. It is hard to see, but the middle image is punched leaving a small "frame"and then the center is raised with pop dots. The picture was taken at Dollywood in June. Brother had just finished off a large Icee all by himself (without getting brain freeze!!) and Sister was catching up on here beauty rest

Color me PINK for October

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so I have gone pink.

Early Detection: Do You Know The Facts?
Each year, 182,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and 43,300 die. One woman in eight either has or will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. In addition, 1,600 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 400 will die this year.
If detected early, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer exceeds 95%. Mammograms are among the best early detection methods, yet 13 million U.S. women 40 years of age or older have never had a mammogram.
The National Cancer Institute and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommend that women in their forties and older have mammograms every one to two years. A complete early detection plan also includes regular clinical breast examinations by a trained medical professional. Monthly breast self-exams are suggested in addition. (This info was taken from the Breast Cancer web site.)

Be sure to check out the Breast Cancer site
