Hi! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We had a great time with two of my son's friends who came down for a visit! Plus I got the house decorated for Christmas!! I love love looking at my Christmas tree. I didn't get much crafting done so today I decided to play along with Mojo Monday.
I was planning on making a Autumn card for today's post but I just didn't get around to it. This weekend I went to visit my family, we had a great time. I was even able to attend my Stampin Up upline meeting!! She had such great projects for us to make! I worked on Christmas cards last week, so I will be sharing one of those with you today!
I used the new Coredination paper in Cherry Cobbler, when embossed it gives you such a pretty design. I love it. I also used the Snowflake die for the Big Shot. I just love snowflakes!
I was really excited to create my page for this week. I used part of the lyrics "I can stand beside ideals I think are right, and I can stand beside the idea to stand and fight".
This election was my son's (Larz) first time to vote. I have tried to tell him over the years how important it is to take advantage of our right to vote. I am proud that he voiced his opinion. He had to do an absentee ballot since he just recently moved to another county, so I made him pose with his ballot. The soldier on my page is my wonderful husband Mike, when he served our country in Iraq. I will be eternally grateful to him and all our soldiers that have fought over the years.
I hope you join us this month at Scrap it with a Song. You have until November 30th to post your creation.
I do believe that the Ornament Keepsake bundle is my favorite purchase from the holiday catalog. It makes such beautiful ornaments and cards! I saw some Christmas cards done in neutral colors with the ornament stamps and wanted to give it a try.
My next favorite item is the Coredination card stock. I used the Early Espresso and ran it through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder for my background paper.
