Hi Everyone, 
I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!  This year I'm so thankful for my family and friends like every year.  If it wasn't for them I wouldn't be able to do what I do. 
They keep me going!

Today, I wanted to share my Thanksgiving card with you all.  I always make a card for my family and friends ever since my daughter was born and I'm still going strong.  Sometimes a little bit late but always handmade. 

Here it is:
This year is a bit simple but it says it all.  

I hope they like it. 

This is an A2 size card for easy mailing.  I used pattern paper from Authentic "Thankful" Collection.  I used Bazzil Cardstock to mat.  I used some burlap trim I got at Michaels.  I then cut out a pumpkin die from Spellbinders.  I embossed the pumpkin with a Darice embossing folder.  I punched out leaves with my Ek Success punch.  Added twine and button from my stash.  I used an old stamp from Michaels for the sentiment.  Inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  

Have a safe and festive holiday everyone! 

Big Hugs, 
Tereese S.

Jewelry Making

Hi Guys, 
I'm here today to share what I prepared for last Friday at my Daughter's girl scout troop.
If you follow me on Instagram and/or Facebook you already saw.

Here is a picture:

I found this idea on Pinterest.  I <3 and="" beads.="" beads="" bling="" but="" buy="" case.="" depot="" did="" dimensional="" don="" ender="" extra="" floral="" from="" had="" home="" i="" in="" just="" letter="" magic="" mod="" most="" nbsp="" of="" p="" pinterest="" podge.="" some="" t="" the="" to="" washers="" wire="" you="">

My daughter had chosen another way of decorating the washers (I don't have a picture of it) which was painting different color nail polish on the washer.  Some girls did that and added some beads and bling to them with the magic.  It was pretty amazing what these girls came up with.  It was alot of work but tons of fun including me.  

I hope you all are having a great hump day!  Life doesn't slow down in my house.
