Happy Thanksgiving week!!
Hope you are getting to enjoy some extra holiday time with family and friends.  Safe travels if you are heading out and about.  :)

This week at Stamp, Ink, Paper......
our challenge for you is "Grateful, Thankful, Blessed".
I went with a simple "thank you" card.  I had made some similar to send out after my dad passed away earlier this year, and I needed a few more for some coworkers recently. I had just loved how they turned out, so I made more of them, almost the same.

I started with my "go to" stamp set, Lovely as a Tree.
I stamped it in black, and sponged in some colors using Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, and Pear Pizzazz.  I then attached the white layer to coordinating cardstock, and done!!

A quick and simple card.  I can always count on that stamp set to help me out if I am ever at a loss for something to make.  :)

Hello again!!  
Thanks for stopping by.....

This week's Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge is some pretty colors for fall. And, the timing is perfect as I picked up my new "Painted Harvest" stamp set at the post office today!!!  It has, sadly, been sitting there since Friday, but I had no opportunity to get there before today.  How sad!!

Here is my first project with it.....

My colors used are Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, and Crushed Curry for the ink. Chocolate Chip is also the card base color, but I snuck in some Early Espresso ribbon under the sentiment.

This past week we had to say goodbye to my best furry friend, Scout.  

That makes all three pups we have lost within the last 14 months.  It is very sad, and very quiet, in our house now.  I don't think my heart is quite ready for a new pup yet, but maybe within a few months.  So, hug your furkids extra close today!!

Please take a moment to join in our challenge this week.  I know I will be playing with this stamp set again soon......I love it!!  And it worked really well with the challenge colors.  My new "toys" came in the mail at a good time.....I need the distraction!!

Hello there!!  And thanks for stopping by!!

I am not much of a wine or coffee drinker, so I don't have any wine stamps, and only a few coffee ones, so I had to think of something totally different.  And this is where I went.....

Te card base is Flirty Flamingo.  The stamp is from Stampabilities.  It is stamped in black, and colored in with Copics.
