Can you actually believe that it is a week before Thanksgiving???? Didn't Halloween just end last week??? Where does time go? I feel frazzled but like always, you all look incredible and calm. Amazing!
OK, on with the post. I ADDED A NEW VIDEO TO THE SIDE BAR! Many of you said you enjoyed the walk with Shotsy & Gunther that I did last Winter and asked if I'd do another one. So, I now have recorded an Autumn walk. So, if you are so inclined, go take a hike. . .err I mean a walk with us! LOL
Now for my cards and project. Take a look:
These are small boxes that I created to sit at each setting at the dinner table for Thanksgiving. I wanted them to be functional, so each contain chocolate dinner mints (Andes) for after the feast as well as a decorated toothpick! How's that for functional? The two boxes on the side were done with DSP (don't know, didn't look) and the middle one is done with plain cardstock and decorated. I stamped the turkey and colored it with Bic markers then attached it with a dimensional. The leaves on the other two were cut with Nesties and the CB, added Stickles, a button, and some twine. Filled each box with natural shred then added the mints and decorated toothpick. Each mint was painstakingly wrapped with matching DSP.
Here's a card:
Another one of my beloved House Mouse images. This one is new to my collection. I splurged and bought it at Hobby Lobby. I got it for 40% off! Colored with my colored pencils and oms. The sky was sponged with distress ink. I did a lot of fussy cutting of the leaves on this one so it would look like he is throwing them out of the picture and onto the card. I also cut out the 3 above him and popped them up with dimensionals for a 3-D effect. I really do love how this one came out.
My first Winter card!!! Yikes! The snowman and sentiment are by Crafty Clear stamps. Colored with a combo of Bic markers and colored pencils/oms. There is lots of glitter on this one, but you can't see it unless you click and make it bigger. The white background is also embossed with the Swiss Dots ef, but you can't see that very well either. Oh well. . .you are probably tired of looking by now anyway! LOL
Pic of the Week
I just loved this shot when I got it uploaded. I believe that this is an Ornamental Pear tree sprout coming up wild in the field. Even the "sprout" was dressed for Fall in the midst of the browns and beiges.
Video of the Week
This video makes me laugh every time I watch it. And who says dogs don't have feelings!?!
OK, that's it for another post. I hope you are all well and happy. Again, I'm so pleased you joined me for another Wednesday Evening Post and I hope you have enjoyed yourself. It's always good to have you here and you are always welcome!
Love you guys!
