Thankful Thursday....Again!

Hello, Everyone!

Today I am thankful that the election is over and hope that someday soon both opposing sides will learn to get along and not be so hurtful on social media. It has basically driven me off most social sites (not entirely a BAD thing!) but it is still distressing to see so many adults acting like spoiled children.

I've been busy creating some new cards the past day or so and I want to share them with you now. Here is something for Christmas but not in traditional Christmas (red and green) colors. Let me know what you think about these!

Both used the more subtle colors (Soft Sky as card base) and then I used one of the designer series paper packs for the layers and of course Whisper White. I've been wanting to use my sequins that are in soft pink, blue, and silver colors so I incorporated them as well. You can never go wrong with a spot of glimmer paper and of course I had to get the Stitched Shapes in there somewhere! I was able to use my Hang Your Stockings stamp set and framelit set on one card and on the other I used my paper punch and Christmas Cookie Cutter set. One of the neat 25% off stamp sets (only till November 30!!!) provided me the sentiment which I thought was so sweet.

Here are some other non-traditional Thanksgiving cards. I realize I keep skipping ahead to Christmas and I am not forgetting Thanksgiving but I guess I don't send out as many cards. I should start a new tradition this year and send more out. God knows we would all love a  hand-made card any time of the year. I would, wouldn't you?? <3  Ok, check these out for Thanksgiving:

On these two cards I wanted to play with the DSP "Fruit Stand" I had received during the month of October when they had that awesome sale (buy 3 get 1 free!!) so I used that plus some card stock from the Halloween Night stack as the card base. This is really a pretty simple card, only one layer (Fruit Stand) and then I stamped and punched a flower from my Pansy set and used coordinating ink colors. The Stitched Shapes framelits made another appearance in the oval label and another sentiment from my other 25% off stamp set...I think it was Seasonal Greetings? I will check for you. Embellished with some of the pearl accents (on the flowers) and washi tape and some baker's twine. Super easy, didn't take long, and looks really cute and colorful for the season. What do you think??

My granddaughter Kiera is coming over. Tomorrow is veterans day so she has the day off school and she wanted to spend the night tonight. Who am I to say no to that??  Remember, if you join my team before December 1, you will have first crack at the new catalog coming out on December 1. If you want to order and do not want to join as  demonstrator (most of us started as "hobby" demonstrators which means we became a demo just to get the discount for our HOBBY!) then all of my customers can order from the new catalog on January 4, 2017. I've seen the stuff in there and trust me, you are going to want it! There are some really cute things in there but I can't really talk about it now. Suffice to say that you will be thrilled if you join now. Between this catalog and the perks you can get (for every $50 spent you can get something FREE from the Sale-A-Bration catalog that is not available to anyone else!) there is nothing to lose. And for $99 you get a whole kit full of your choice of Stampin' Up! stuff worth up to $125 and a special gift from me after you join. Plus you will be my team member and I will help you become as successful as you want! No pressure, but if you are interested just click HERE!! <3 

Have a great Thursday night, everyone!
