I'm thankful for:
My God loving me, no matter what
The little joys in life that help us to remember to be thankful
What are you thankful for? I'd love to hear from you!

Ever see a wall in your home and wish that you had just the right thing to hang there? Well, that spot for me is my entryway. What do you put up? And then you want to change it for special holidays? I was shopping at a thrift store and found this great frame in perfect condition, but without the glass. Glass? Not necessary if you're stamping something, right? I paid $2 for this frams and look what it became! I used the Watercolor Wonder Crayons for the Watercolor Wash technique for the background. Those of you who came to my Christmas Card Cranks were able to try it out and found out how much fun it is. One frame says "Hope", one says "Joy", and the middle frame has an image of the manger scene, complete with star and Luke 2:11. I glittered the star, halo over the baby Jesus, and the first letters of the words. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Come on over to see it in person.

Here is one of the cards that we'll be making on Saturday. This is one of my absolute favorites. I love the Ski Slope Designer Series Paper and it goes beautifully with this stamp set. I also love the simplicity of the two colors.

Well, this was a fun card to make! I created this one for two challenges on SCS http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/. This was for Sketch Challenge 200 and Color Challenge 190. This new stamp set "Cheers To You" is a really fun one! Now I just have to figure out which friend or family member to gift this to! .....or I could keep it for myself. :-) I used dimensionals behind both the scallop square and the white square to give it a fun look. Blender Pens allowed me to color in the drinks with the In Color inks. All supplies are SU!
