Curvy Keepsakes Giraffe!

I had the pleasure of having my daughter Jessica and 6-year old granddaughter Kaitlynn visit us this long Labor Day weekend. They brought over their Paper Pumpkin kits and I helped them assemble their kits. Kaitlynn LOVES giraffe's and I've seen a few in blogland made with the Curvy Keepsakes Box Die. I thought I would make one for Kaitlynn while she was visiting. Here is what my version looks like:

This little critter sure puts a smile on your face doesn't she? We'll say it's a she as I think Kaitlynn would want it to be female. I'll have another post in about a week with 3 more for Halloween that I've created. This die I think, has created a monster in me and in others as it's so addicting to alter! Make sure you visit my Online Store at the bottom of my post to order one!
I hope you are having a great Labor Day weekend!

Merry Monday #124!

Happy Labor Day everyone and welcome to a new Christmas card challenge at Merry Monday. If you have a day off today, come play! Deanne has a great challenge this week:

I decided to add a "large" present to my card. So large that it took up most of my card front:

I also added a bunch of flowers over-flowing from the package when opened. I love the color combo of Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana, my favorite Stampin' Up! colors right now and here's a close-up of the coordinating cute tag I added to my present:

I even used my Blendabilities Marker to color my Organza Ribbon:

Stop by Merry Monday to play and to visit my Merry Maker teammates. Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!

Ribbons of Hope!

This is not stamping related but won't you consider helping? Keep reading:
Do you know someone who is unfortunately going through surgery, chemo or radiation due to breast cancer? Starting today, September 1st, my daughter Jessica, who is a Scentsy Consultant, will have this "Ribbons of Hope" Scentsy Warmer available for purchase. You can send me a message and I will have her get in touch with you.

Last year when this Scentsy fundraiser took place, the warmers quickly ran out so act now. Help her sell these as $7 from each one sold will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. I can also have her contact you if you are interested. Thanks!

Get Well Cards!

I've received some BEAUTIFUL cards while recuperating from foot surgery. I've also had some of you ask what happened to my foot. In all of my years of playing competitive sports during school and through my adult years, plus throw into the mix, jobs I've had in office settings with high-heels.....I had two very painful "neuroma's" which are a thickening of the nerves. My left foot underwent surgery to remove parts of two nerves because of the pain I was suffering when walking. It is a total of six weeks recovery with ZERO weight on my foot for the first three weeks. Which means crutches for most of those six weeks. I am having my stitches removed in a few days after three weeks of being good (believe me, it's hard to be good). I'm a 200 mile an hour kind of person! And from there I start to add weight on my foot. Cross your fingers.

Anyway, all of the cards you will see today were created by some of my customers and friends:

Cyndee Randall using the Wildflower Bundle and coloring with Stampin' Write Markers with the addition of a butterfly from the Bitty Butterfly Punch.

Cindy Milton using the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch and snipping all the scallops to resemble daisies. The circle from the Punch Pack for the center. The flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack adorned with Pearl Jewels in the center. The branch from the Bird Punch and the sentiment from the Trust God stamp set cut with the Decorative Punch.

Deb LaRosa using non-Stampin' Up! supplies. It's hard to tell by the photo by the stem is a glittery paper that is stunning.

Cathy Autrey using the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder, the Kind Koala Stamp and Blendabilities Markers.

Nancy Farrell using the Flower Shop stamp set, Hello Honey Satin Ribbon, Punch Pack and Rhinestone Jewels. The cute little band-aid is from a retired set.

Thanks so much for thinking of me made my day when these arrived!

I love the stamp set I am showing you today that is available for purchase in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. Although this set is a Christmas set, I changed it up as a Fall/Autumn/Thanksgiving set by adding a different sentiment and using fallish colors:

This is a quick card to whip up because the stamps coordinate with the framelits so that everything is cut out for you. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to glue my wreath and banner in place:
