MME/Thankful card set

I did these with Thanksgiving in mind. I used MME/Garden Party themed paper and used my new Nestabilities / rectangles to make the card front. The felt flowers are from SU. I love working with felt and ribbon. I love the look it gives to a card.

Fiskars/circle border punch

I couldn't wait to try this circle border punch. I have so many ideas! I love the doily look. You could use this for the topper of a gift bag or a photo mat to use on a scrapbooking page. I cut one out to show you how pretty the edge of the paper is. The punch will do 6" or 4" circles. The one I'm showing is a 6". You can get this punch at or you can contact me. All orders for the circle border punch will go into a special drawing, for a great prize from me.

Layout challenges/OCT

I did these 2 layouts in the wee hours of the morning. Thought I would post them and challenge you girls to pick up your photos and do a couple of layouts. You will feel so much better after you do and you will have 2 more layouts done. Pick a place in your home that you can put a table up and have a place to leave stuff out and work on your photos a little at a time. You will be amazed at the end of the month what you have accomplished. Go ahead-give it a go!!

Corner Book Markers

I came across these while blog hopping a few days ago. I put my spin on them and came up with this. So cute and so easy. All you need is a 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" square peice of paper, fold just at the top so you can find the middle of your square and corner round the bottom corners and then decorate!! What nice little gifts!! Have fun and make a bunch.

What a Wonderful World

I couldn't sleep last night so I decided to do one of the challenges, for October, on the consultant board over on AC Bailey. The challenge was to use a song-so I picked "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong. This song always speaks to me - I guess because this is the way I see the world. I did learn a little back ground on the song. It was written with the Vietman war in mind-how wonderful it would be if there was no war. Interesting.

Katie Surprise

What a surprise I got when I picked up the mail the other day. Katie bug had sent me a surprise, in the mail, for making the DT at AC Bailey and just because. So sweet. Yeah Katie bug!! That was her nick name when she was a little girl. Thanks so much - You made my day!
