Open House for Stamping Peace Leaders and Class Attendees

Open House Card 004

“Strange, isn’t it George, how each man’s LIFE touches so many others, and when he isn’t around it leaves an awful hole.”

~Clarence the Angel, It’s a Wonderful Life (movie)

You, my friends, help fill up that hole left by our nephew’s passing yesterday.  Thank you for your kind comments, e-mails, visits and phone calls.   You are such a blessing to me.

To our Stamping Peace Leaders and Class Attendees…you are invited to an Open House at my home on Saturday morning, December 6th, for a little Feast of St. Nicholas party.  In appreciation of your stamping friendships we’ll stamp a couple of projects, enjoy some snacks and beverages and give out some door prizes.  Stop in anytime between 9:00 a.m. and Noon.  Bloggers, there will be some blog candy for you on that day, just leave a comment on the blog to be eligible.  (Stamping Peacers, you can play along with the blog candy as well if you are a blog follower.)  Are you planning a Feast of St. Nicholas party this year?  You can find  you many resources at http://www.stnicholascenter.org

This invitation was made with last years stamp set called “Santa’s List”.  He’s surrounded by holly from this year’s Holiday Invitation stamp set and the image is cut out from and matted on a border from the Window Frame Framelits.   The banner insert for the inside of the card was also made with the Holiday Invitation stamp set and was cut out with the Banner Framelits.  The ho! ho! ho! was heat embossed with white embossing powder and is from the new “Good Greetings” stamp set.  That stamp set will be one of our door prizes at the Open House.

Our furnace is out, I’m waiting for the furnace man but in the meantime have to go stoke the woodstove…then I’m going to try some “Triple Time Stamping”…I’ll let you know how that goes!  Have a happy and holy week-end, Dawn


Old Fashioned Autumn Card

Pumpkin Card 005

“I love the nostalgic myself.  I hope we never lose some of the things of the past.”

~Walt Disney

Good Wednesday morning!  Yup, I’m an old-fashioned girl myself…which is why we don’t have cable t.v., a microwave, a cell phone, an answering machine, etc… (but I am a little progressive ’cause I have a computer!)  : )  This sweet little old-fashioned card is a variation of my self-proclaimed granddaughters (a downline’s downline!) swap card for a big stamping event we went to this past Saturday in Augusta (love it Carolyn!)  We made it at our stamping classes this week and it uses a few new stamp sets…Fall Fest for the pumpkin (pumpkin pie and stamped off mossy meadow inks), Holiday Invitation for the little green leaves around the circle, Holiday Home for the little Cajun craze leaves around the circle, and Good Greetings for the sentiment.  The background stamp is Hardwood with crumb cake ink.  Cardstocks are Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Pumpkin Pie.  Although the calendar doesn’t say fall yet, the weather does, so I’ll say “Happy Fall!”  : )
