Hi crafty friends! I just want to pop in and wish everyone a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend to all my USA friends and family. We are celebrating this weekend with just ourselves. I was sooo excited to find a turkey yesterday at the store. My girls and I were jumping up and down with excitement.

We are also going to be taking the week off from our WHW tutorials. We will be back again in December for a couple of tutorials before the holidays.

Inspired by Stamping Just Because Stamp Set & Card

It was so fun today to get out the stamps and get my craft on. I have been drawing up a storm for our January release. All new products and embellishments for next year. I have been staring at the computer screen for a few weeks now. Yep, I’m here in the background but haven’t been making cards.

I used our new “Just Because” sentiments stamp set from the November release. I am so excited to see everyone’s creations with this set as we sold out of it very quickly last month.

Inspired by Stamping Vintage Paper and Just Because Stamp Set

I realized when taking my photos that this card could flip and still look good either way. LOL! Which way do you prefer?

Inspired by Stamping Vintage Printables`

My tickets are from our Vintage Digital Printables. I then created a double satin bow and used a gold flower to the center.

After stitching my paper and adding this pretty peach ribbon, I then stamped my sentiments in two different colors. For my final touches, I added these little butterflies with rhinestones in the center.
