Gobble til you Wobble!

Turkey Day is just ONE week away!

I can't wait for all of the family fun and yummy food this Thanksgiving.  What a treat and blessing to have a brand new family member at the table this year to celebrate with us.  This is Emmaline's first Thanksgiving and I'm sure she will love it.

If you're like me, you find yourself trying to find something fun to put at each person's place at the table to dress things up a bit.  Well, this little "Tom the Turkey" is the perfect answer.  Not only is he just stinkin' cute, but he holds two Hershey nuggets for an after dinner treat.

You just can't help but smile when you look at that sweet face.  Want to know what is  the best??  His feathers are stamped using the Making Every Day Bright  (148813) stamp set and get this....the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch (148013)!  Say WHAT??  Yes indeed!  It's just one of the reasons that I LOVE punch art.  Creating fun "critters" made from various punched shapes and watching them come to life is absolutely my FAVORITE things to create.

Wanna know what else??  I'm attaching the supply list and a detail sheet for you.  That's right, folks!  You'll be creating this "Dapper Turkey" in no time.  To order your supplies, you can either click on the image of the products or go to my ---->>Online Store.

I hope this brings joy to those you love this Thanksgiving.

Stamped Blessings,

A Sweet "Country Home"

Buffalo Check and Country Home....a perfect pair

I have to tell you...both of these were on my "must have" list as soon as I made my way through the Holiday Catalog the first time.  There's just something about the Buffalo Check that says "Home" to me.  I just love it.
The background technique is one of my faves and it is so simple.  I stamped the Buffalo Check in Bermuda Bay ink on Bermuda Bay card stock.  I love it.

The images from the Country Home stamp set are beautiful and right up my alley.  They are colored using Stampin' Blends and it really is a fun card to make.

Here are the supplies I used.  Just CLICK HERE to shop for the products you'd like using Host Code 2XGXW4UF.

Don't forget the special this week for World Card Making Day.  Check it out for great deals.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.  Get those fingers inky! :-)
Stamped Blessings,

NEW "Shiplap Santa" Punch Art

Happy Monday, Peeps!

I have been having so much fun in the studio and I couldn't wait to share this NEW punch art cutie with you.

Meet "Shiplap Santa"

Doesn't he just make you smile?  LOL  
This project also highlights a couple of sneak peeks from the upcoming Holiday Catalog.
There's NEW Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, the NEW Christmas Bulb Builder Punch and the gorgeous NEW Galvanized Buttons.  Oops!  I almost forgot to mention the Stitched Seasons Framelits (149013) which are already available.  

Check out the card's trifold design...

I just LOVE those stitched framelits.  This set is a little different from the Stitched Shapes Framelits in that the stitching on the inside and the outside of the shape.  They are perfect to create frames like I have here.

Are you ready to make Shiplap Santa? 
Get the color pdf tutorial for FREE when you place 
a $25 order from my Online Store.

To order ONLY the tutorial, go to the "Tutorials" tab at the top of the page.  Cost:  $20.00

Have fun bringing your very own Shiplap Santas to life!

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead,
