Wonderfully Wicked with Woodland Embossing

welcome back to my corner of the world

So here we are – October 2nd!  although here in North Texas it is hard to believe it as we continue to have temperatures in the mid 90’s and have only had rain twice in the last 9 weeks!  As many of you know I originally came from south-west England some 18 years ago, before we came to this part of the world I never would believe I would ever WISH for rain!!!

As this is the start of October I am sharing a Halloween card using the Wonderfully Wicked Stamp Set from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  As I write this post, Brian (best beloved!) is  putting out the Halloween decorations in the front garden. Continue reading

Embossing Lovely as A Tree ~ Video Tutorial

Thanksgiving ~ Among the Branches

Goodness me…. this is my 300th post!!!!!  Wow, I am quite amazed that I have this much to share……..hhhhmmm to continue…..

It has stamps that work for Halloween, Thanksgiving/Fall and Christmas – all three of the major holidays.  I have used this set a lot in my classes over the last couple of months and have a few cards to share with you over the coming days.
