“THE ART OF really living IS giving.”

~Ann Voskamp

Hi stamping friends and welcome to the season of Thanksgiving and “thanksliving.”  I hope you have beautiful plans for the week upcoming.   We’re making plans for a family celebration, but also for 13 birthdays between now and Dec. 30th!  This is one birthday card that I made with this weeks challenge over at  I used the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper.

I’ve made a few Thanksgiving cards…


which was from a design I had made for a retro sketch challenge a couple of weeks ago…


This is a card I had designed for a stamping class last week (and for one of those 13 birthdays coming up!)  : )


And this was another card that I designed for last weeks stamping class:


And last but not least, a package I wrapped with the Moroccan DSP:


Have a wonderful week!  xo Dawn

Owl fun for #GDP060

“Friends, they are kind to each other’s hopes.  They cherish each other’s dreams.”


The challenge this week over at is a “Case the Designer” project with a fun card by Brian King.  Brian is always coming up with “outside the box” cards, including this one!  I wanted to use some sort of creature on my card and chose this owl (that always makes me smile) from the “Howl-0-ween Treat” stamp set.  I wanted to hang the owl upside down from the garden green bar, or have him popping in from the side, but his little owl feet were too cute to hide!  Thanks for the inspiration Brian!
