I Am Thankful for You

It's been an interesting summer...to say the least....including a recent hospital stay for pneumonia.  Yep...pneumonia in the summer.  UGH!  Anyway...I'm home...and feeling a bit better every day...but I know I wouldn't be saying that without the help of an amazing care team during my treatment.  So....I thought it was only appropriate to let them know how much I appreciate them...and I also thought it was about time I get to enjoy some fun, new 2017 Holiday Catalog products.  Yay!

This gorgeous stamp set...Painted Harvest...is fabulous...and I can't wait to show you more!  Oh...and the sentiment....I am thankful for you....is from the Painted Harvest set, too...and it says perfectly what I want to say!

Have an amazing day!

TGIFC#118 - Technique Time

Good morning...and happy Friday!  I'm back...with something lovely for this week's TGIF Challenge!


 It's TGIFC#118...and it's a Technique Time - Emboss Resist challenge!


Click the image above to go to the TGIF Challenges blog for all the details.  You'll be able to see what the TGIF designers have shared to inspire you...and you'll be able to see what other challengers have created, too!  But first...here's my emboss resist challenge project!

It's funny...when I was first introduced to embossing and emboss resist I was totally unimpressed.  But over time...I was won over...and now it's one of my favorite techniques.  Here...I heat embossed the pool and part of the flamingo in clear powder...and part of the flamingo in clear powder over black ink.  I love the varied look the different powder and ink combinations provide!  I added my color with ink and a sponge dauber, and I think it's my favorite emboss resist look.  It doesn't require perfection...and to me that's invaluable!  Ha!

How will YOU be inspired by this week's TGIF challenge?  You'll find the link to add your own project at the #TGIFC118 page HERE.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Have an amazing day!

Fancy Friday Blog Hop - Making Memories & More!

Welcome to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop...a super fun hop where I'm lucky to get to work with some fancy friends...who also happen to be past or current Stampin' Up! Artisans!  On the last Friday of each month we hop with a new challenge...and this month the challenge is all about the new Memories & Me Card Packs!

I chose to get crafty with the Perfect Days Memories & More card Pack.  You can read more about Perfect Days and ALL of the amazing Card Packs HERE on my Memories & More page.    I hope you'll check it out...but first...check out my Fancy Friday challenge project!

I was super lucky and got to spend a couple of fun days in KC with my fancy friend Marisa...and I made quick work of this little note card quartet with my Perfect Days card pack and a few simple additions.  The card pack color combinations are fabulous...so bright and fun!

 Here...I trimmed a 4 x 6 card to layer under a 3 x 4 card, added a flower from the sticker sheet, an enamel dot and a strip of washi tape.  Seriously...that's it!  Easy peasy!

Here I simply cut the flower from one card, layered it atop coordinated card and added a gem.   Sweet and simple!  Oh...and another cool thing about this card is that you can present it horizontally...like here...or stand it up tall like the group shot above. 

This card was the most "difficult"...where I've cut and layered three cards.  One card holds the happy, and I stamped and cut out the word birthday.  I also added a bit of solid, black twine.  I think this is perfect your favorite gal or guy!

This...this is my favorite.  This black and white print reminds me of one of my grandma's aprons...and I love it so!  I added a sticker sentiment...and if you look closely you'll find that I also added a bit of glimmer with few tiny rhinestones. 

Thank you so much for stopping by for the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!  I hope you're inspired to create something fabulous with at least one of the new, Memories & More Card Packs...and I'd LOVE to see it!  So...post it, using #fancyfridaybloghop when you share it...and let me or one of my fancy friends know!

And now...hop over to my see what my talented, fancy friend Marisa Gunn has to share!


Have an amazing day!
