Peace, Joy&Love

I've got a swimmy stampy head again from a modern Christmas creation.

Stamping makes my head all swimmy, especially when I go for an abstract/modern design.

Happy Day Pumpkin

I know these aren't your traditional fall colors...but I love the blue pumpkins I see everywhere!

(stamps:Verve Everything Nice,Hero Arts Thoughtful Messages  dies:Verve Pumpkin Spice,My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Circles  other:Blue Pearls gift with Verve order~thankyou!)

Here is something I came across that explains one why of blue pumpkins...

I thought that was interesting.

As for a challenge, check how well blue plays with red in this challenge!

Over half a lifetime ago, I cheered for my sister school's boy school that flaunted these colors.

The lime circle wanted to be included so I threw it in too. ;)

BTW, I was gifted with some gorgeous blue pearls from Verve~THANKYOU!

FAITH Bookmark Card

I've been thinking about some people and wanted to send a gifty card out.

Here is one version~

(stamps:Simon Says Scribble Flowers  dies:Simon Says Stamp Painted Faith,Avery Elle Bookmark set)

The smaller dies in this set can work as tabs to hold a bookmark.

Simon Says (Wednesday):Think Pink

 It's a little early for sparkly garland...but I wanted to match the shiny washi I incorporated.

This bookmark can carry the recipient right into the winter season!

Thanks for stopping in on your busy day~

November Birthday

With days flying by, I didn't want to overlook my sister-in-law's birthday in November.

Seriously, I feel like I'm sailing along a slip-'n-slide and there's no end in sight until February!

Not complaining, just sayin'.

(stamps:Simon Says Stamp Wild Beauty sentiment/Scribble Flowers, Hero Arts Thoughtful Messages flowers,Unity Maple Girl  dies:Avery Elle Wonky Stitches/Dotted Elle-ments)

These colors stole my heart right away so I pulled them out ...

I used a different resist technique than my last post...I stamped circles over clear embossed flowers.

I think you can "color" anything with dots and circles.

I grabbed on to a moment to I sail again...

Prayers and Resistible Flowers

I don't emboss as much as I should...

(stamps:Simon Says Stamp Wild Beauty/Prayers  die:Simon Says Stamp/Hero Arts Prayers)

This challenge motivated me to do a little resisting with embossing powders and sponging.

It was a gritty powder (sandy when dry, that is)...but it resisted just fine when I sponged on Black Soot distress ink.


Is it really only Tuesday?  I feel like I've endured so much more~ ha!

Have a good one guys~
