Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello there, blog friends.  Are you all prepping for your Thanksgiving day festivities?  I know I still have a lot to do!  I did manage to create a Thanksgiving card for you all.  :)

As you can see, I'm enjoying my Circle Thinlets die!

 This time, I added a fold out panel so that you can write out a bit more on the inside:

 Flip open the card, and you'll see the Happy Thanksgiving greeting inside….isn't that fun?
Hope you like it!  

Here's the recipe for the card:

Happy Thanksgiving card:
*Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
*Inks: Early Espresso
*Accessories: In Color DSP - Summer Starfruit, Circle Thinlits die, Scallop punch, Label bracket punch, dimensionals, Early Espresso Stitched Grosgrain ribbon

Hope you and your families have a very Happy Thanksgiving! I'm so thankful to you all for coming by to visit my corner of the world.  Blessings to you.

Birthday fun with the Circle Card Thinlit die

Hi all!  Have you seen how fun the thinlit die cut cards are?  Here's a birthday card I created for a dear friend of ours using the Circle card thinlits die.

Here's another view of the card:

And what's a card without a lined envelope?

I just love the envelope liner framelits! They come in 3 sizes - liners to fit the standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", 3" x 5", and 3" x 3" envelopes.  These dies are great to have in your crafting stash for coordinating your card projects.  LOVE them.

Hope you liked my quick share today.  I can't wait to make more with these framelits.  They are a delightful surprise to receive and are definitely a nice change-up to the traditional cards.  I encourage you to give it a whirl!

Thanks for stopping by!  Ciao for now.

Spoiler alert! November Paper Pumpkin project

Hi all!  I was so excited to get this month's My Paper Pumpkin package in the mail today and was even more pleasantly surprised at the super cute project I found inside!  Don't get me wrong, I love getting my orange box in the mail every month, but I have to say I absolutely love this adorably festive holiday card. For the November project, you get this card kit which contains supplies to create 4 of these Noel cards with envelopes along with 2 stamps {the star and the sentiment} + 1 Real Red Stamping Spot pad.  I think what I love most about the project is the star garland!  It adds that special touch of fancy to the card, don't you think?  I'm happy to say this card marks my first holiday card of the season. How about you guys?  Have you started?

I personally am so behind on the holidays in general this year. It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is already right around the corner! Time is definitely flying.  I'll need to go into high gear with my turkey day planning - I'll be sure to share my ideas with you soon!

Thanks for visiting me today.  Hope you have a great one!
