3 Wise Men

Many thanks to my good friend, Meg, in Scotland for sending me several of these awesome die cuts. I paired it with some strips of orange paper. No sentiment needed here.

Love + Peace + Joy

All eyes have been on Hurricane Ian. It's just devastating what it did to parts of FL. I grew up in FL, my mom and sister still live there. Thank goodness they were spared the worst of it and surprisingly, neither one ever lost power. Watching our news tonight, I just couldn't help but shred a few tears for the cities that were literally in shambles. So so sad!!!

I see the storm had been downgraded down to a tropical storm so we have been under a tropical storm warning all day. Now it's a hurricane again. UGH!  Expected to make landfall around Charleston, SC - that is about 260 miles from me now. It is expected to come right through Charlotte (I am near Charlotte, NC) sometime tomorrow night I think. It SHOULD be a tropical storm by then and we are expecting 3"-6" of rain and lots of wind tomorrow. I am trying to stamp some cute cards to take my mind of things!! Isn't this house mouse Christmas tree image the cutest?

Pumpkin Weekender Tote

CUTENESS ALERT!!!  Is this weekender tote bag not the cutest ever??? Concord & 9th had these on sale last month and I had to get it!!  These dies make it sooooo easy to make these cute weekend tote bags. You can find it here.

Only 1 more week of my time on the Design Team at Splitcoast Stampers. WOW, that 6 months sure went fast. Now I will be on the Alumni Team :).

I love Fall most of all

To make my Fall wreathe, I used the Gina K Designs wreath builder template and it places your leaves perfectly in a circle. I forget I have it and need to dig it out more often! I decided to put Pooh in the middle of these leaves. I added some Nuvo yellow drops to the pot of honey.

House Mouse with hummingbirds

I think this is one of my favorite of my House Mouse stamps, especially since I love my hummingbirds so much. I have been lucky to have had about 12 hummingbirds this summer. Sadly, they are slowly disappearing further south and I hate I have to wait until next April until I see them again.
