Bird Banter for GDP#115

Today I am sharing a sneak peek at one of the new stamps sets that will be released January 2018. Bird Banter is so very cute! You will love the many different ways you can use this set.

Did you know birds are high maintenance pets? They need fresh food, water and interaction every day. Just like all pets!  We have neighbors who own birds and when they travel they have called upon us to pet sit or just stop in and talk to the birds – they get lonely for a human voice.

GDP#115 challenge this week is Christmas Joy.

I thought Bird Banter would make a joyful, funny Christmas card for our friends.

What do you think? Is this joyful enough? I know it will bring a smile and a laugh.

The tree branch is from Best Birds and the ornaments are from Carols of Christmas. It is fun to combine sets to create unique cards. Creating cards is one of the best jobs I have ever had!

I know this set will be a big seller from the new catalog. Put it on your wish list today.

 Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Stamping!

Our Advent Tree & Paper Pumpkin

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around our house. We even put up a tree this year. Many years we don’t decorate a tree because we are traveling. We always go to visit our grandchildren in Colorado and I dislike coming home after Christmas and having to put everything away, but this year we decided we needed a tree. Our tree is small and we only hang ornaments from our travels. Those ornaments bring a smile to my face. Such wonderful memories of places we have visited.

Last year I asked a friend to make me an “Advent Tree” out of wood slats. I saw the design on Pinterest. It was late December before I picked it up so it went in the attic until this year. I had intended to create some little bags or paper stockings for the tree UNTIL the November Paper Pumpkin arrived at my house. These stockings were perfect for my Advent tree!

I added  numbers and gold bling to the top of the stocking. I am so in love with how this turned out. Thank you Evan, Stampin’ Up and Paper Pumpkin!

The stockings have candy in them. I need some visitors to come enjoy the sweets.

Have you ever tried Paper Pumpkin? Getting that box of goodies every month is such a thrill. You never know what to expect but it is always fun. I guarantee it!

Wishing you Christmas Joy!

A Card & A Quilt – Hearts Come Home

A few days ago a fellow demonstrator shared a picture of a quilt she saw in her local quilt shop. Isn’t it beautiful???

We all mentioned that it was a lot like the stamp set, Hearts Come Home. I went directly to my craft room and started stamping!

This is the card I came up with:

I know the quilt is much prettier and darker but I love the card anyway. Where do you get your inspiration? I like to look at quilts, magazine ads, pillows, and home décor items. Pinterest is also a good place for inspiration but I tend to get overwhelmed. Please share your favorite inspiration spots in the comments. I would love to hear from you.

Thanks for stopping by today. 

Christmas Joy!
