FMS 465 & Curvy Christmas & Ornamental Envelope



Sometimes is SO hard to take a good picture at the LakeHouse ~ I guess it's the lighting inside, so I do apologize for the ~ this is Cherry Cobbler ~ 



~ This is Shaded Spruce ~ 







I started by stamping the Christmas Ornaments on a piece of Whisper White and then cut them out using the Envelopes Dies, this gave me my 'negative' frame ~ a sweet piece of Classic Christmas DSP adhered under and then dimensionals onto my card base ~ Yup ~ that easy ~ now to step it up I spritzed it with my Champagne Mist ~ my sentiment was from Curvy Christmas was die cut using Stitched Shaped Dies

I was so pleased when I noticed that my card was a close match from the sketch at FMS 465 ~ I hope this card makes the cut! How fun to play along! Thank you for putting these great sketches together for us to play along with!

thank you for taking a peek at my quick post here ~ have a wonderful day!

HERE is a silly video showcasing these items!!!


So with all this, I bid you adieu ~ 
 May the Lord bless you and keep you, may the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord turn His face towards you and give you peace.

Not a Card Post Today

So today I don't have a card to share with you ~ but with a plea to please follow the guide lines to stay at home, to be safe, to physical distance, to wear a mask ~ please ~

Unfortunately, Covid is NOT fake news, it's real ~ and at times unless it hits close to home we disregard  the practices that are shared for our good.  I personally do follow the guidelines, even though I don't like it, even though it's inconvenient, even though my Stampin' Up business has suffered financially ~ and yet, these statements all pale in comparison to the hurt, the fear and the pain that so many are dealing with today!  My heart personally goes out to my cousin, who lost his wife, his love, the mother of his children, and the grandmother of his grandkids ~ so if you are a praying person, may I invite to pray for Mitch and his family as they deal with this great loss in their lives ~ 

Sandra's Obituary can be found HERE

I thank you ~


So with all this, I bid you adieu ~ May the Lord bless you and keep you, may the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord turn His face towards you and give you peace.
