“We must be afraid and awed and amazed that we cannot live forever.”

There are a couple of sympathy cards in my portfolio that I usually make, but last week I saw one that Lynn Kolcun made and it inspired me to try “Triple Time Stamping.” I found a video about the technique on Dawn Olchefske’s You Tube Station. It’s a lot of fun, and very easy! The three Very Vanilla pieces of cardstock are 2″ x 3 1/4″, 3″ x 4 1/4″ and 4″ x 5 1/4″. The two Soft Suede pieces of cardstock are 2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ and 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″. The Brown Sugar base is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. I scotch taped each very vanilla piece together by rolling up a piece of tape and pressing it all over with my fingerprints so that it wasn’t very sticky (so it can be easily removed after stamping.) After stamping the images, adhere each piece to it’s mat. I was a little off with the Blushing Bride Butterfly on the bottom…it should have been lower…but for my first try, I was happy! It will be on it’s way to Holland when my hubby flies out later today. He’ll be gone for Thanksgiving, so I’m starting to think of some creative new Thanksgiving traditions for the boys and me! What are some of your Thanksgiving traditions?
