Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Look at this!!!!!!! My awesome husband made this centerpiece for us for Thanksgiving. It is sooo cool. The pic doesn't really do it justice. It is kind of large, so I didn't have a good place to stage the photo. It is made from a limb that he trimmed from one of our trees. He drilled holes for tea lights to sit in and added foliage that he bought at Michaels. It is on a base with dried moss. It is about 2 feet lone and the highest part of it is about a foot high.

My husband is such a wonderful guy!! He is so thoughtful! Enjoy your day.....I hope to get some stamping done soon so I can post again. God Bless!!

Snowman Winter

Hello!!! My goodness, time goes by so quickly. I find myself in a creative slump these days.....my work schedule doesn't allow for much creative time. There is a light at the end of my tunnel. I may have another opportunity in the coming weeks to follow the career path more to my liking.
While I am thankful for the position that I now hold, it is a struggle to work each day because the schedule is hard. I struggle to keep a good attitude about work, which is not really like me, I'm generally a pretty upbeat person. Well, enough whining already!!!
This card is kind of a stretch, I don't really like it, but at least I finished something....

Supplies: Cardstock-Confetti White Stampin' Up! Navy textured-Bazzil, Red-SU, Plaid DP-Making Memories (from a LONG time ago) Snowman stamp is a retired SU stamp. I used my Martha Stewart Snowflake punch and the SU Scallop Edger. Glitter glue on the snowflakes (this is kind of hard to see) Markers-SU
Thanks for looking today. God Bless!! Have a great weekend.

I apologize for disappearing again....work has kept me really busy and seems to cause creative cramps. I just hate it when that happens. Don't you? Today's card is just for any happy day occasion.

Cardbase, circles are all Stampin' Up Cardstock, Purely Pomegranate, More Mustard, Positively Pink. DP is from the DCWV Glitter pack. I used the small Cuttlebug EF on the More Mustard circles. Ink is Marvelous Magenta from SU. Sentiment is SU and Dragonfly is from Clear Stamps. Ticket Corner Punch, Ribbon
