North Pole Mail

Hi Friends!
I hope you are all having an inky time of it over this long holiday weekend.
I thought it would be fun to send a bit of cheer from the North Pole...
Well, I'm not really there but it has felt like it over the past few days - LOL!!

Give Thanks

Greetings, Stampers!
Long time, no post from me.  I had a health crisis just after Labor Day, and have not been able to get any crafting in yet.
I just finished chemo treatment 5 (seven more to go, and I hope that will be the last of it).  The meds are making all systems bizarro, not the least of which is the affect on my hands...but enough boo-hooing!

This post card was created by my 14 yo daughter, Laurel.
Laurel spent a l-o-n-g time on the coloring : )  something not possible for me at the moment.
Hoping to get back to my craft room soon.

A blessed Thanksgiving to all of you.

 I wish you a happy "prep day" as we call the Wednesday before the big feast!
This year, hubby, sis, and daughters will do the cooking for me, quite a change from the usual, but I'm sure they'll do great.
All the best!

Thanks for Everything

It's Linda's Monday and I have another Thanksgiving card to share with you today. 

I've done some layering on this one and I've used the Large StampTangle Pumpkin. I colored the pumpkin with my go-to medium, colored pencils. The sentiment was stamped with Archival black ink and distressed around the edges with vintage photo ink. I added a bit of Distress Stickles to the vines/leaves. 

Just to give you an idea of the size of the three pumpkins, I took a picture of the images I stamped onto white card stock. The largest one is approx. 3 1/2 x 4, medium is 2 3/4 x 2 1/4, and smallest 2 x 1 3/4. You can find them HERE.  

Thanks for stopping by...... Linda

Hope you are having a wonderful first Monday in November. I have a Thanksgiving card to share today. 

It's so hard now days not to go straight to Christmas after Halloween. And no wonder with the merchandising hype well in the groove. My husband now calls Thanksgiving "the forgotten holiday". Isn't that a sad thought. I try not to forget about giving thanks and take a break from whatever is going on in my life and reassess my priorities. 

The card I created for you uses the wonderful StampTangle medium pumpkin. I say "medium" because there are three sizes to choose from. And, as always, three choices of mounting.  I colored the pumpkin with colored pencils, die cut a vine and used an autumn paper for the background. The sentiment also came with the autumn paper and was popped up before attaching. Gold colored adhesive gems were added to each side of the sentiment. All is mounted onto a sage green card after adding a 5/8" wide ribbon in matching green.

I will be showing you the largest pumpkin on my next post Nov 18. Hope you stop by. Check out the other new StampTangle holiday stamps at Just For Fun Rubber Stamps. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Linda

Joy & Peace

It's time to start thinking about Christmas....
only 53 days left till the big day!!!
Today I wanted to share a fun card with you using a couple of the new Stamptangle images
Each ornament was stamped and embossed then colored with Spectrum Noir Markers and have Stickles Glitter Glue highlights.
These make lovely additions to a card but they would work equally as well as gift tags!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone...
