Congratulations on your Engagement

I received some very exciting news in late November as one of my nieces called to let me know that she and her boyfriend had just got engaged!

My niece and her fiancé live in Colorado and plan to be married in October of 2022!

So with my new pre-order supplies* I set to work to make the happy couple an engagement card.

PPP Blog Hop - Lots of Pun!

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use the December Paper Pumpkin kit "Lots of Pun".

These are the original projects:

For my alternate project I just used items in the kit and added nothing extra!
I used the unused portions of the punch out sheets for the Pool Party piece, the coloured lines, and the scalloped Pool Party circle. Plus the inside of one of the envelopes for my card mat.

Happy Anniversary

My husband and I just celebrated our 43rd Wedding Anniversary on Saturday, December 18th.  I made this simple yet elegant card for him using the Love & Happiness bundle from our new Mini Catalogue that goes live on January 4th.  

This bundle includes a stamp set, a Hybrid Embossing Folder and 9 dies.  I used  many of these items for this card.

My choice of colour reflects the colours from our wedding; my attendants wore blue velvet dresses hand made by my Mother.  Of course being so close to Christmas the church had decorations up and we added lots of fresh holly.
