Thankful Forest Friends

A Very Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone!

We are celebrating at home this year and my parents are coming over for dinner.

I had just one request from my Mom and that was can we make cards after dinner. Well duh Yeah! She wants Birthday cards and Anniversary cards so we will be mass producing some cards for her to take down to Texas with them. They go every year to Mission, Texas for the Winter.

Speaking of Texas you are probably wondering how our trip went. If you tuned in last month to my Live Event then I told you my husband, oldest son (Will) and I were heading to Dallas TX for a week. Will wants to move there; he is sick of Michigan winters and has always wanted to live in Texas.

Well 4 days before we were set to leave I saw a lump on the back of Will’s dogs leg. He brought her to the vet the next day and it is cancer. Will bought Cassie when he was 18 and he’s 27 now so yes Cassie is getting old but she is Will’s baby. Cassie had surgery 2 day’s before we were set to leave; surgery went well but they could not get all the cancer. Now he has a tough decision on what treatments to take all are very expensive and luckily it is a very slow growing cancer.

While all this was going on I found out that my identity was stollen and I spent two days on the phone trying to get everything taken care of. What a mess and scary as well.

Well that’s not all they say everything happens in 3’s right? Well Dean came home from school sick.

Yup, there was no way we were getting on that plane; just too many reason’s why we shouldn’t go.

We did end up going but only for 2 days so I could attend the Stampin’ Up! event and Bill and Will got to drive around to the different towns in the Dallas area so Will could at least get a feel for the area he’s looking at.

Sometimes life throws you a curve ball. Sometimes you get more than one curve ball at a time.

This is when you need to reflect on the good and be thankful for all that God has given you. We have our health, we have our family and friends and life is good even with a curve ball thrown in now and then.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Blessings to You and Your Family!

Give Thanks
This is another card for my upcoming Card Buffet class. Class participants can choose which cards they would like to make and how many of each.

I love the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper because not only is it pretty paper but it coordinates so well with the Acorny Thank You and the Thankful Forest Friends stamp sets.

Speaking of Stamp Sets make sure to check back on Monday because all Stamp Sets from any of the catalogs will be ON SALE 15% off! More details on Monday so make sure to check back. While you wait for Monday start making up your wish list and remember Christmas is coming. 🙂

Today’s card base is Early Espresso and a little Daffodil Delight and Into the Woods DSP.

I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out the sentiment and matted it onto an Early Espresso Deco Label Framelit.

A piece of Frayed Burlap Ribbon tied in a bow and attached with a glue dot.

Also I’ve had quite a few emails regarding my last Live Event. Below is the question most asked and then my explanation.

Question:
Will you be putting the video up on YouTube again and giving out the password for the PDF files for the Tent Topper with a twist cards?

Answer:
I posted the class last month on YouTube as well as giving away the Password to unlock the PDF files and videos on my blog for 2 reasons.

#1 to promote my new Photo Gallery on my blog and have everyone try it out to see how it works.
#2 to show my appreciation to those who place orders and tune in to my live events.

When the new catalogs come out I host an Open House and offer free make and takes and show different tips and techniques for my local customer’s. I wanted to find a way to do this with my Online customers as well so this was my way of doing that.

I’m not sure if I will do this type of event quarterly or possibly twice a year.

It does take a lot of time and even money to prep, prepare, and hold the live events; not only my time but my husband’s as well. I cannot afford to give everything away every month; my stamping business needs to sustain itself as that is the agreement my husband and I had when I became a demonstrator that I would or could not use household income to purchase my stamping supplies.

I hope you understand my position and understand that I can’t always give away my time and ideas.

My Tuesday’s Tips & Techniques videos are free every Tuesday and are also on YouTube. As well as my daily blog post and sometimes the directions are given for cards as well and you can find them in the photo gallery.

Thanks for checking out my blog and the Live Events; your orders are greatly appreciated.

Bonus #2 Acorny Thank You
This is Bonus #2 for my featured stamp set for the month of September “Acorny Thank You” bundle.

I don’t know if it is the colors used on this card or what but this just seems to be a cheerful fun card to me.

This is a great card to send out to someone just because. Don’t you love going out to the mailbox and receiving a card from someone just because? I know I sure do.

Great saying, “Dropping by to say Hi” just because. 🙂

Have you checked out my new photo gallery? If you haven’t make sure you do; just click on the button at the top of my blog.

Why photo gallery and not card gallery? Well it is not all cards it is a mix of 3D projects, Treat Holders, Videos, PDF files etc.

You will find in the gallery that the “Acorny Thank You” stamp set of the month has a little Key next to it and if you click on it you will see it says you need a password to view.

You will receive the password in an email from me when you place a min. $40.00 order in the month of September. Use this password each week to get the Private Videos and PDF files for the featured stamp set of the month.

Oh My Goodie and Acorny Thank You
I hope you are having a fun filled Labor Day with family and friends.

We are out to the cottage and I’ve been doing a little bit of stamping. I made this card to send out to everyone who has placed an order with me in September.

The Thanks sentiment is from the Oh My Goodies stamp set and I paired it with my featured stamp set for September; “Acorny Thank You”.

The Designer Series Paper is from the “Into the Woods” paper pack.

Yes, that is the new Rich Razzleberry Ribbon from the Holiday catalog as well. LOVE!

The Old Olive cardstock was run through the Big Shot inside the Woodgrain Textured Impressions folder.

If you’ve already ordered from me in September look for this card in your mailbox this week. Don’t you just love to get mail that isn’t a bill but something pretty and fun? I sure do!

I’ve added a NEW Feature to my Blog; have you seen it?

If not make sure to check out my NEW Photo Gallery Page! Click on the box at the top of my blog. I’ve started to upload my cards to the gallery and have all the supplies listed. If you find something you like just click on the supply item and it will bring you right to my online store.

Also, some of the cards have step by step instructions.

Check it out and please leave me your comments. This is a new program my son is writing for me so we are looking for ideas and would love your input.
