Throwback Thursday: Cookie-Cutter Halloween Part 2

This week's card is a bit of a spin on last week's card and features many of the same elements.  I can't help it---I love the scarecrow and I love pumpkins!!!

I placed my little Scarecrow in a "field" of pumpkins, using the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and added some Linen Thread.  That's pretty much it.  Take a look:


The pumpkins!  Seriously, I just cannot get enough of those sweet pumpkins in the Designer Series Paper!  This may be a piece that I horde...you must tell me I have to use it up!

I've never actually "fussy-cut" a sentiment out before (I'm more of a "Let's place it on a banner" type of Girl) but I love that extra little "element" of simplicity that makes it stand out.  I truly think this is another one of those "less is more" techniques!  Any more paper and I think it would detract from my "pumpkin patch"!  Haha!  This sentiment is from the Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set and it's truly one of my all-time favorite sentiments.

The Stitched Shapes Die-Cut Circle provides just enough background for my Scarecrow and the Linen Thread ties everything together (pun intended!).

I hope that this card gives you all the Pumpkin Feels!  It sure does me!

To recreate this use:
Come back and see me soon!

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder. I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!   After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born. I imagine you can see why this is not just my  most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot! Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee

Podcast Episode 4: Accountability

How many of you feel like you're on a never-ending hamster wheel, just running and running and running?  Do you blame the wheel for moving too fast or too slow?  Do you blame the cage for not having any space?  Or do you figure out that you need to stop, get off the wheel and get out of the cage to endless space? I think we all have those seasons in our lives where we easily blame the wheel or the cage.  And the difference between staying on the wheel and blaming it for staying on it and stopping, getting off and getting OUT is our ability to take accountability. Take a listen to this week's podcast and let me know if it inspires you to stop running on the wheel and instead, figure out how to stop, get off the wheel, and get out of the cage.

Lent 2020: Days Nine-Thirteen

Hahah.  I am realllllllly good at sticking to my Daily Gratitude Posts.  {Insert Eye Roll Here}.  Well, I guess I can blame life, sicknesses, etc., but the reality is---I haven't been sticking to my Lenten Commitment of being Intentional.  But, let's forget the past and just start moving forward, right? Day Nine: Thursday was a rough day.  HJ was still sick-ish.  I started having the WORST sinus pressure.  I had a horrible headache.  I was out of ibuprofen for myself and I really didn't feel like going anywhere, despite the fact that I was beginning to get a little stir-crazy.  But, then I remembered how incredible Target Pick-Up is!  Just click, add to cart, checkout, boom.  Less than two hours later, I get a notification that my order is ready and I drive myself (and my sick kid) to a parking spot, GPS notifies Target of my arrival, and check---I have a bottle of ibuprofen and Advil Sinus meds in my hands and I'm back on my way home to my couch and snuggles withou
