A beautiful WREATH!

A 'Wonderful Wreath' card.......with a fun fold!  This was one of cards that was offered in my Christmas card kits. 

stamp set:  'Wonderful Wreath'
card stock:  Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White
ink:  Old Olive & Real Red
other supplies:  Big Shot, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, Wonderous Wreath framelits, dimensionals, glue dots

Check out the fun fold when it is opened up!

We had a really busy day yesterday with family- but had a great time!!  It was a challenge to get all of the boys to look & smile at the same time for pictures- so we'll see what they turn out like.  But we took them at a feed store & I can't wait to see them!  There was still a little snow & then old buildings in the background.  I think they will be cool!!  

Our trip to Des Moines to see Disney was awesome too.  The boys were all good & loved the show!!  It was a variety of different Disney things- Cars, Fairies, Toy Story, Barbie & Ken, Mickey & Minney, etc....  I thought it was kinda of hard to keep track of things & I prefer the single story line theme- but it was still great!  Neat costumes, singing, lights, etc. 

I was up early this morning to start my chicken baking & getting things ready for our Thanksgiving Dinner.  We are off to my sisters here soon & will spend our day there with my side of the family having a late Thanksgiving Dinner together.

I hope you have a SUPER Sunday!!
Happy Stamping!

An 'Ornamental Pines' card

I do believe that the 'Ornamental Pines' stamp set in the Holiday Catalog is one of my favorite sets.  This card is similar to one of the cards I offered in my Christmas card kits- but it is going the other direction & I didn't put a flag (banner) on it for the words.  I really like both of them.
 I added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to it for some sparkle & just loved it! And I used strings from the Burlap Ribbon to tie & add a bow over the pine cones.   The Woodgrain Embossing folder helps to add a little dimension & texture to the card.
stamp set:  'Ornamental Pines'
card stock:  Early Espresso, Crumb Cake & Very Vanilla
ink:  Mossy Meadow, Early Espresso
other supplies:  Big Shot, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Circle Framelits, Paper Snips, 
Dimensionals, 2 Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Burlap Ribbon, Glue Dots

You can see the other card I made similar to this layout, but going the other direction BY CLICKING HERE!
I spent the whole day yesterday working on farm stuff.  I got most of it done.  What a great feeling!!  I even got my homemade noodles made too last night before I went to bed- so they are drying & will be ready for me to cook tomorrow morning.  As tomorrow we have my side of family Thanksgiving Dinner at Beckie & Dan's home.  

Today we will be spending the whole day with our kids & grandkids!!  We are going to be on the go!  This morning we are getting our family pictures taken in the snow.  And then this afternoon we are all headed to Des Moines to see Disney on Ice & then we'll go out for supper.  All of us are going except for Deke- as he has a ton of meetings next week & had too much work on the farm to do to take off to go with us- which is a huge bummer.  I am not sure who is more excited about going to Disney on Ice- the kids or the adults!  It was a family tradition to take our kids to Disney on Ice during Thanksgiving weekend when they were young, but Sarah & Steve have never been to it before.  Nathan & Sarah stopped here last night for a bit & she said that she was super excited to be going!!  It looks like the weather is going to be good too- so we should have an almost perfect day!

I hope you have a SUPER Saturday!!
Happy Stamping!

A pyramid "Tree" card

Here is a fun fold card that was one I created for my Fall Stamp Til You Cramp event the end of last month.

Years ago I did a pyramid card & couldn't remember how to do I did a Google Search for 'pyramid card tutorial' & found a great u tube video that demonstrator Linda Gutierrez did. 

Didn't it turn out cute!!
stamp sets:  'Festival Of Trees' & 'Good Greetings' (hostess set for October only)  card stock:  Garden Green, Whisper White
designer paper:  Trim the Tree Paper Stack
ink:  Real Red & Garden Green
marker:  Chocolate Chip
other supplies:  2 Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Candy Dot Brad Base, Paper Piercing Tool & Mat, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Multipurpose Glue, Tree Punch

*The 'Festival of Tree' stamp set & Tree Punch can be purchased separately or together in a bundle!

Here is a picture of it from the side- so you can see where I added the designer paper.

There is how it opens up & how I decorated the inside of it.

It can lay flat & fit into one of our medium sized envelopes for mailing.  

NOTE:  I used 3 - 4x4" squares to make this card.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving yesterday.  We had a wonderful time with some of our family here for dinner.  How blessed we are!  We'll get to spend Saturday & Sunday with the rest of our family. 

Here is the Seeley family-
Steve, Brody, Manda, Trey & Drake
 Here is Trey, Deke, Brody, me & Drake

Trey with my mom (Great- Grandma Sharon)

When everyone left I then spent the rest of the afternoon/evening wearing another 'hat', as I was working on farm bookwork.  I'll work on it all day today too.  I have the day off from babysitting the boys today & so I'll be working at one of my other jobs all day/night.

I hope you have a FABULOUS Friday!!
Happy Stamping!
