Wishing you Well

More Wishing you Well set
See how versatile it is?
I made another wreath card with it using the actual
greens from the set, stamped it three times in Mossy Meadow

I'm stuck on this gorgeous combo of the Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler, very holiday like colors.
I stamped the ribbon three times too and then fussy cut it out to
attach to the wreath. 
Another super easy card for you to try!

Wishing you Well

Wishing you Well has returned again with another super 
easy card for you to try. 
I needed a quick card for a friend and simply stamped
the bouquet in Soft Suede ink, then stamped the ribbon in 
Crushed Curry and popped it up. 
Doesn't get any easier than that!

Happy Thanksgiving friends!
Hoping this holiday brings love to your heart,
health to your body and peace and joy to your
home throughout the new year.
Reflecting on all the things we all should be thankful for.....
the list is long.....
enjoy every moment.

Wishing you Well

Hello friends!

I used Mossy Meadow ink to create the wreath.  
To make the wreath start my stamping in a circle till
you get to the other end to create the circle.
The ribbon is stamped three times in Cherry Cobbler

The cardstock colors are backed with Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadows. 
Such a versatile stamp set and so dainty and cute.

Creative Class

Friday was a fun filled morning at creative class
It was bittersweet as I held my last class in our home as we
have moved.   Soooooo....... moving forward we will make new
projects and memories at our new place!

We started off making these very farmhouse pumpkins
made with a roll of toilet paper, some plastic grocery bags
and a 18 x 18" dinner napkin. 
I have showed how to make these in past posts, so refer to
those last posts on how to assemble the fabric pumpkins

We also made these Give Thanks mini chalkboards
(I found them at Target, 4 for $3)

We also made these ornaments. 
Now you ask, what should I use them for?
Well, you can hang them from a wine bottle for a dinner you might be attending.  Use them as tags for gifts. Or hang them on your Christmas tree, etc.......

These little treat holders are filled with chocolate 
nugget candies. Great for table treats or table decor for the holiday. 
I just cut the paper at 1" x 3" and wrapped them around the candy and secured them with a small piece of candy.  So cute!!!
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!!

Wishing you Well

Wishing you Well my friends~
This dainty little set is so sweet.

I used the burlap stamp for the background
and stamped the greens in Mossy Meadow.
Look how cute and realistic the bow looks.
It's suppose to look like organza ribbon and it does!
Just stamp it once then two more times on top
of the original one to get this effect.
I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler ink
You can use this card for many occasions and this set as well.
Keep an eye out for my upcoming posts, I'll show you some more ideas using this set. 

This is what the set looks like...

Girl's Weekend

It was a fun girl's weekend away in the mountains 
celebrating one of my dear friend's birthday
We were able to do two trail hikes, both were easy, one was a 
hidden secret called Triple Falls.  A local told us about it so we set out to find it and we succeeded! 

This is a group of friends of mine, 
we have all been very close
for many years!
can you tell how windy and cold it was!

  We are heading towards the falls

This is Triple falls
if you look waaayyy down you can see how the three falls
drop into each other.... well, we could, you can't 

Brittanie and I

Debbie and I 

Ceri and I

Of course we had to have champagne and do facial masks!

Here we are at the fused glass place ready to make our glass ornaments 
I am so thankful for this great group of women who have surrounded my life with highs, lows, growing with each other and all the laughs in between.  Love you all!

Let Heaven and Nature Sing

I love looking on Pinterest for free printables
Did you know you can find soooo many amazing images
to use for home decor, projects, creative crafts just about anything!

I love the simplicity of this sweet printable and
the quote; "Let Heaven and Nature Sing"

I printed out the image as a 5x7" and purchased some shims
at the local hardware store.  I cut the shims at 6 1/2" and used a glue gun to attach the paper to the wood shims.  Be sure to add a pieces of twine at the top to hang it from 

I don't know if you can see in the picture, but I added just a touch of silver glitter to the tree in just a few spots.
It's never too early to get your Christmas crafts and gifts started!

Candy Cane Horses

Look at these cute little horses you can make!
Everything you need comes in the kit except for the candy cane chocolates which can be found at your local Target or Rite-aid etc.

Start with the stockings, they look like this above.

Turn them upside down 

Using double sided tape add it to the right side of the
stocking to create the horses mane.

Take basic black ribbon and curl it up the side of the tape to
 create the mane

Cut yourself a  8 1/2" x 1" piece of red cardstock, I used glitter red paper.

Wrap the paper around his neck just above the plaid
Add a googlie eye and pom pom nose.
Tie the red thread around his nose for his muzzle

All these pieces come in the kit with the stockings
Put together the tag and add to the collar of the horse
There you go!  that's it!

Once he's all complete slip him over the top of the candy cane
filled with chocolates
