Celebrating my 1000th Blog Post!

Homespun Close-up
 
   Hello friends! Today is a big day for me, my 1000th blog post! (And it is my son Cameron's birthday which is super awesome also.) I really can't believe I have written out 1,000 blog posts. Where did the time go? My first post was in 2008. Six years later I am here today, as in love with this hobby as ever and I am so thankful for the friendships I have made along the way.
 
Since Christmas cards are my favorite, I thought I would share a couple of those with ya. My first card features the Papertrey Ink Make-It Market County Fair quilting die and coordinating stamps. I also used the pine bough stamp builder from the PTI set Love Lives Here: Holiday.

My second card is a less traditional card featuring stamps from the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Circle Scribbles and Holiday Photo Finishers.

My third card, a Thank You card features the PTI metal plate Mighty Oak. I used the plate to create my stencil. Next using a sponge and Gold Delicata ink I sponged the stencil to create my golden tree. The sentiment is from the Wet Paint set that was stamped and heat set using black embossing powder.
 
 
Thanks
 
Thank YOU for everything, for visiting my blog, for leaving comments, and for being my friends.
