Time to give thanks!

Happy Monday!

Wherever you are reading this from, I hope the sun is shining there too!  Although it has gotten to 11 degrees outside, I can take the cold as long as that old sun is shining down!  Somehow, that always makes the day go just a little smoother and happier.

Saturday was a birthday for me and thanks to some wonderful & amazing friends and family I was blessed enough that I now need to send some heartfelt thank you notes! Although I had been working on a few, I needed several more so today I'm sharing those.

These first two were made with a new set of dies I got for my birthday. These are Memory Box Cherise Label and Tiffany Frame. The sentiment is an old one from Studio G.

For this one, I used the same dies, but chose a stamp from Flourishes that I especially love and added an embossed edge.

For the last two, I stamped 2 more pots of flowers from that same set of Flourishes flowers and did a couple different versions of the embossed edge again.  I'm loving embossed edges right now! ha ha  Am I the only one who gets enthralled with a stamp, a die, an embossing folder or technique & just wants to try it every way I can imagine until I finally get tired of it?  Okay, so I may be a bit

One thing you can't see well in the photos, but that looks amazing on the flowers is the Wink of Stella Brush in clear that I brushed over each flower.  It makes everything all sparkly & glittery! This was something I had never tried before but was in the box of goodies from my daughter.  I can tell you, I will not be without one from now forward! Amazing tool!

Have a wonderful week!  I'll be back with something fun tomorrow.



  1. Happy Belated Birthday Sherri🎉🎈🎂 love your new die and coloring on your cards! Lucky you for seeing the sun today😊 we are having freezing drizzle in North Texas today & overnight. However, we are suppose to be in the upper 60's end of the week and 70's for the weekend!

  2. Happy Birthday! Very pretty cards. I especially like the lilac with the gingham. It really caught my eye. Looks like a fun die to work with!

  3. Those dies are so cute! Someone knows what you love! Each card is so pretty in the different colors and designs. I especially like the red on white with the red border along the side. I can just feel all the fun you had creating these. I'm glad you had such a good birthday. It is your day and yours alone and it should be special!
