Stamper's Block

Happy Thursday!!! I know it's been a while...had a little episode of stamper's block (you know...like writer's block). Anyway, I'm trying to get back into the swing of things with a little Thanksgiving card:

I also started playing with my favorite snowflake punch and some peppermint candies...I just used a glue dot to stick a peppermint to the middle of the snowflake and tied it with a silver cord. Then I topped it with a stamped image on a pop dot:

Here's a few ways I used them:

Stamps used: #A128 (Pilgrim Turkey), #A129 (Turkey Day), #902 (Snowman), #911 (Christmas Bear), #912 (Christmas Monkey) and #934 (Mini Max).

Enjoy the rest of your week!!!

A Wreath Card

Good Morning!!! And a special "Aloha Y'all" to one of my faithful readers, Linda in San Antonio!! I don't know where all the time has gone...but Halloween came and went...hope you all had a very fun time!!! That means the holidays are just around the corner!!! Maybe if we get started early, things won't get so crazy and we can take time to enjoy the season!!!

Here's a Christmas wreath card I'd like to share (don't worry...I won't forget about Thanksgiving...that's coming soon!!):

I know the colors and paper are not very traditional...but, it's fun to change things up a bit now and then!! All I did was punch out a circle (I used a blue Marvy circle punch)...then I punched out 16 holes (right around the edge of the circle) with my 1/8" hole punch. Then tie simple knots with little strips of ribbon. It looks more like a wreath IRL because you can see more of the dimension.

I'd also like to share some things I received in the mail...the first is THE most adorable ornament from sweet craf-tea chick... check out her blog and see some of her other creative creations!!! She was the winner of one of my giveaways and made this ornament with the stamps she won:

The next is a beautiful bookmark from Deana in Ashland, Oregon!!! Such talent!!! Thanks, Deana...it's already marking my place in the book I'm reading now...and it makes me smile every time I look at it!!!

ok...that's it for today...hope to be back soon with more!!!
