Thank you card

Here's a sweet thank you card using a Unity Girl stamp. I just love these amazing images. It's one of the only companies that I continue to consistently buy red rubber stamps from.  You can't go wrong checking out their awesome creations.  Had a horrible thing happen this weekend I was biting something and had a tooth break (either the tooth chipped or the filling came out).  UGH...

Just what we all want before thanksgiving right?  A trip to the dentist and a big bill?  SIGH

Happy Birthday

Here's a great card using some wonderful papers from Paper Source that I got in a kit at the store.  I made this greeting card today for two church friends who are both celebrating their birthday today.  I thought it would be nice to combine the paper from India with the lace from Turkiye.

I pray they both have a very special day!

Here's a wonderful SEI card. I just love the colors and the way their kits match patterned papers together.  I have a real problem doing that on my own.  I don't know if y'all notice that when following my blog, but you rarely see more than a single piece of patterned paper on a card.  I will have to make a real effort to try and match papers next year as a goal.

Hoping you all have a joyful weekend.

Eat Crow

Here's a hilarious new image from Artist Sandra Caldwell.  This cute image is called Eat Crow!  TOO FUNNY.  I used this stamp to create a Thanksgiving card for that person you know who has a good sense of humor.  Sandra's store is BabycakesDND on Etsy and she will be adding this stamp today!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  I can't believe we are already at mid-November!

You are my Favorite

Here's an awesome stamp from Stamping Bella's Oddball line. I just love these stamps. I own most of the girls in this stamp line.  Recently they have made a bunch of new additions to the Oddball line of adorable animals.  Hmmm, maybe I should be adding those to my Christmas list.  I thought this card was perfect for the holiday season.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.  There's just 7 more school days until we are off for Thanksgiving break.  Hang in there teachers.

Zombie Sheep

Here's an adorable stamp that I know YOU NEED for Thanksgiving.  It's from artist Rachel Huddleston (Miss Rach Stamps) and her line of DST (Dead sea toons).  She has some fun images of all different zombie animals.  I love them.  This one is a cute sheep (click here).  She also have a new line of great insect theme stamps (not zombie theme, regular gorgeous images).  She's also uploading some wonderful Christmas theme images.  Check out her store here, her wonderful stamps are on sale for $1 each.  TOTALLY worth it.

Have a great Tuesday.  Wish I had a warm wool coat like the sheep in this image!  HA!

Time for a funny card

Ha Ha!  You know I love a little punny humor!  This image and sentiment come from Unity Stamps.  They just had an awesome sale, it may still be happening if you want to run over there and check out their site.  I got a bunch of wonderful sets for like 55% off (or a bit more!)  I couldn't resist.  They have the cutest new owl sitting on the moon.  You will see a card with that stamp soon.

Had to share this card today because we are back in the winter weather here. It's expected to be in the low 30s, which is cold for Texas.  They don't sell real coat here, but I ordered a coat from Canada, because at the school I have to stand outside at 7am in the morning for an hour while the kids arrive at school.  BRRRR!!

Pressed Leaves

Sharing another leaf card today. I just love these pressed leaves and miss my friend who used to give me all these precious treasures from God's earth.  I still have many books of pressed leaves to continue to create cards from.  She will be missed.

Amazing Women

Here's a great card for a friend or dear co-worker, boss, assistant, etc.  It's just perfect for that occasion when you want to make a more general but very heart felt thank you. It comes from one of the amazing SEI card kits and has gorgeous papers and embellishments (though the buttons there are ones that I added from my own collection)

Have a wonderful weekend!  Give some thanks to all those Amazing Women who surround you!

Happy November Birthdays!

Sending out a couple of November Birthday Wishes today to some special friend's whose birthday's are this week.  You know who you are :)  I don't wanna embarrass you by putting you age on here, but I will....just kidding.  Have a great Bday!
This card was made from an awesome kit by Anna Griffin. I just love her packets and usually add some extra embellishments like buttons and lace to enhance the cards.

I moose you

Here's a darling Unity stamp.  These sweet animal images come from artist Tierra Jackson.  I just love them, I have a whole bunch of her wonderful stamps.  They are just TOO cute including this little moose.  They also come with fun sayings like, "I moose be crazy for you"  how sweet is that?

I also added some great Turkish lace to the card that I got on my last trip.  I am so looking forward to going back there to get some more.  Cheers, Holley

Look Who's cute

Here's the cutest image from Tickled Pink, which was acquired by CC Designs.  I haven't seen them sell these stamps in a while, but occasionally see them offer these stamps in digi format. I just love this entire stamp line, TOO cute.

I hope you have a great Tuesday. I can't believe it's already November.  WOW, time is flying and before we know it, Thanksgiving break will be here.

Smile, Darling

Here's a great fall theme card from a kit by SEI. I am using some lace that I got as well. I just love their awesome cardstock and as you can see, faintly on the left, it's a beautiful embossing on it.  So smile darling and have a great week!

Give Thanks

Sharing another fall theme card using a pressed leaf that I got from a church friend.  This dear friend has since left the church and moved to be closer to her family, but she leaves many books behind that have pressed leaves in them which I will be using to make cards for the church.  She's such a dear!

Dia de los Muertos

Happy Dia De los Muertos!  Hope you are having a wonderful day, it's time to celebrate! Day of the Dead.  Here's an awesome image from Dilly Beans that I used to create this care along with some great lace from Turkiye.  I hope you have a fabulous Day of the Dead this year.

It's a time to celebrate remembrance of your lost loved ones.  Often an alter is set up with photos, and things that the dearly departed loved.  In Christian places the holiday may be celebrated as All Saints day

Skeleton Smiles

Thought I needed to add a skeleton card right before Halloween time. I am also using some great paisley trim that I got while in Istanbul a while back.  I am so hoping to get a trip back there this summer.

Hope you are all ready for Halloween. I should totally share some photos of my neighbor's house.  They have been putting up decorations for the entire month, it's just WOW.

Hello Friend

As promised, here's another of Sherri Baldy's great tattoo images.  I am adoring these images!  You can find them in her store, HERE.  The whole line up is just fabulous.  I hope you will go and take a peek at them.  Warning, they are super hard to resist.

Just five days until the Church Bazaar now.  I have taken off on Friday to get to the church and help with the set up.  There will be so much work to do.  It's really bittersweet as this is likely the last Bazaar we will have at the 49th annual.  Our church is set to close at Easter :(

A new church will be formed in our building, but a very different church.
