Hello Friends!! I hope this post finds you all well!!  Time is flying by and fall is officially here in VA.  This a.m. the temperature was in the high 30's. Brrr!  It is hard to believe it is almost the end of October.  Christmas will be here before you know it.

Today I would like to share one of my Christmas creations using the Merry Caps Dies from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I just love the font of it.

The poinsettias are created with the Merry Mosaics and the Peaceful Poinsettia dies.  The pine was created with the Pine Branches dies.  The paper used is the Christmas Coordinating 2015 Paper Collection.  The card itself and the dies are framed using the Pierced Rectangles.

The Merry Christmas Caps are cut from both silver cardstock or white cardstock.  The poinsettias are layered using the Christmas Coordinating 2015 paper collection and the Peaceful Poinsettia dies and Merry Mosaic dies.

I hope you are in some way inspired by my creation.

Have a blessed day!  Thanks for stopping by and for your comments!!

Hello Friends!!  I hope this post finds you all well!!  It has been a bit since I have posted.  It sure has been busy as we prepare for craft shows as well as work.  Happy Fall!!

Fall is such a beautiful time of favorite!  After hot humid days the fall temperatures are so welcome!!  So comfortable!  The leaves change their color.  "To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven." Ecclesiastes 3:1

Today I would like to share a sneak peek of a creation I made using some new stamps, dies, and papers, being released at Our Daily Bread Designs tomorrow!! 

I created a shaker card with sequins using the new stamp set Be a Sunflower and the coordinating Sunflower die as well as the Fall Favorites Paper pack.   The fun shape is created using the Rounded Rectangles and Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles. The added decorative strips are created using the Bitty Border dies. The sentiment is framed with ovals cut from the Layered Lacey Ovals and Ovals dies.

The "Bread Basket" has a lot of inspiration to share with you tomorrow!! You won't want to miss the release.  Have a blessed day!!

Thanks for stopping by!
