I love November!
Hello friends : )
I just love November because with it comes a little reprieve in my super busy schedule. Pretty much all of my scarves are sewn and craft shows over. We focus from here until Christmas on filling orders and making our customers happy! : ) It is the "funnest" time of the year in our scarf business. We are so ready!!
I also love November because with it comes colder weather, soup, turkey and pumpkin bread : ) yummy treats that always make my home and belly feel cozy!! : )
I was blessed to get into my craft room quite a lot this past week. I created this card for Laurie Wilson's "Partial Die Stamping" technique - this week's Make It Monday challenge. Check out Laurie's video tutorial HERE.
Laurie is a super talented member of the Papertrey Ink Design team. This technique is easy peasy and full of endless possibilities. Please consider joining the MIM fun!! there is a prize!! : )
For this challenge I stamped itty bitty little flowers on my "Wonderful Words: Friends" die as well as my "Fillable Frames Die #4" both from Paper trey Ink. The flower stamp I used is one that is included in the PTI "Happy Hexagons Stamp Set". I had to snip off the letter s from my Friends die to fit the message I wanted to give my friend. The "I miss You!" sentiment is from PTI's "Flower Fusion #6 Stamp Set"
I cut my flower from vellum and popped the top layer up using foam tape. It is a little bit more "airy" looking IRL. I was pleased with how it turned out. I will use Laurie's technique often in the furture I'm sure : )
I hope you are enjoying a pleasant weekend.
See you again soon.
