If you have two loaves of bread sell one and buy flowers. For although the bread will nourish your body, the flowers will nourish your soul.

No Stamping Card

This card is for the November 24th CCEE supplies challenge. Charlene (LilLuvsStamping) supplied us with the beautiful red starburst translucent paper, three poinsettias and leaves, some snowflakes, and the gold cord and ribbon. We had to use some of the red paper, at least one poinsettia and either the gold cord or ribbon or both. The use of the snowflakes was optional. I layered all three poinsettias, added a cuttlebugged snowflake panel, and used a beautiful paper lace sticker from Mrs. Grossman.

Recipe: stamps- none; paper- red designer (source unknown), white; ink- none; accessories- Cuttlebug, silk poinsettias, gold ribbon, gold cord, lace (Mrs. Grossman's stickers).

Autumn Basket

I just wanted to post a pic of my fall basket, because I'll be replacing my title pic with a winter one. I love this basket. I got it at for half price at Michael's a couple years ago, and it has become my holiday basket I keep on my kitchen island. It holds pumpkins and gourds in the fall, pinecones and Christmas decorations in the winter, marble eggs in the spring, and miscellaneous themes in the summer. Time for the seasonal change!

The Hurrieder I Go....

...the behinder I get. I love that old Pennsylvania Dutch saying. I can remember visiting my great grandmother, Memmie, when I was little and hearing her converse on the phone in German Dutch and thinking it was the coolest thing. When the house was messy, we had to redd up, and when you left a room you needed to outen the lights.

As for being behind, I really am. In getting ready for Thanksgiving I got a lot accomplished, but not in blogging or stamping. It meant getting the house clean and ready for family coming home. Always a wonderful thing.

This card was for my CCEE challenge for November 17, for the featured SCS stamper name...Eggette. It had to have at least one egg, the color green somewhere, and some ribbon. The chicken and egg are paper pieced.
Recipe: stamps- Best Of Cluck (SU); paper- white, SU designer series; ink- black archival, always artichoke SU marker; accessories- black grosgrain ribbon (Offray).
