Creativity Boutique and KnK goodies

I have wanted this Wisemen stamp since I saw it in the CHA catalog . (Yep I actually went thru the entire catalog and highlighted stamps I needed! For this card I used I stamped on the Graphic 45 paper and cut out the images. One of my favorite things about KnK and Creativity Boutique, besides the shopping---which I have seem to do alot of ;) , is that I am on both Design Teams. So I get double the fun! I made this wall hanging using KnK's December Kit. The colors are absolutely gorgeous!!!!! The letters here are painteed and then sprinkled with glitter. For another project I did use the marshmellow glimmer mist and yummy!

We ave had a very sad week at our household

about a week and a half ago our doggie LOU hurt his back.. we took him in and they gave him a shot as usual....the next night he suddenly seemed to be staggering and having trouble walking by the following morning the hind legs were pretty much paralyzed... we took him in and they thought it could be just swelling or permanent and wanted to watch him over weekend. it never got worse but never got better so they told us to take him home this past Tuesday... it was miserable. he was such an active dog and he absolutely hated a kennel and now to heal he was confined to a kennel. after watching him scout and howling at night because he was lonely we took him to a different vet for a 2nd opinion

he was basically never gonna regain use of his hind we had to make the decission to put him down. Crying or Very sad
Other other doggie Charlie is a little sad and looking for his pal, But we are thankful we still have him to cuddle.

Loving this stamp set!

I loved this Birch Buddies Set from Stampendous that I played with this month for Creativity Boutique. There are so many possibilities with this stamp set!!! I used my Tsukineko Markers and some Stampendous Flock! and of course I am loving the embossing folders. My sizzix is suddenly no longer gathering dust!

Pick of the Patch

Another example of just how lovely the KNK November Kit is!!!! I love the Webster's lettering and the wood pumpkin from Harmonie! One of the Sad things about the grils getting older is that Meagan wasnt quite as excited this year about getting and carving pumpkins. She was still super excited about trick or treating tho as she and the entourage joined Alex and I for trick or treating.

Happy Fall

I found another source for stamps. (Insert eye roll here) They got me with the cutest nutcracker stamps (and I think the only nutcracker stamps I have ever seen). So I made this card using one of their stamps sets and papers from KNK's Novmeber Kit! You can get these stamps at Clear Dollar Stamps and the Kit at KNK.

I made this Layout using my yummy KNK November Kit. I love love love the colors in this kit!!!! Just let me say my picture of this layout does not do it justice. The glare is hiding the texture of the leaf paper on the background :( . And just wait until you see the December kit!!!! wowsa!!! 2 altered items, a card and a layout so far and still going strong!!!!!

I'm Nuts about You

This month I got to play with the Birch Buddies set from Stampendous! To create this card I used papers from KNK's October kit. I added some flock to the squirrels. My daughter who has an obsession with squirrels has already claimed this card :D
