Started making holiday tags for my upcoming craft shows. This darling snowman comes from the flaky friends set by amuse studio. The sentiment is an old woodblock stamp from my stash...I added the red heart and it's the perfect tag.
October 15 - 2016 Calendar Download project for Charity
I am thrilled to announce the immediate availability of our 2016 Calendar Download project for Charity. The proceeds from this year's Calendars will benefit Water 1st. Water 1st is a unique organization that is making a real impact on the lives of girls and women in some of the poorest countries in the world by providing clean water and toilets.
Our printable calendars are a fun crafting project and make wonderful gifts to give and receive! There are five Calendar sizes available in black & white and color versions for a total of ten Calendars. These calendars are printable (PDF) files that you can print at home as many times as you'd like. They are fun to personalize with stamps, dies and photographs and make a great Workshop project.
Our 2016 Printable Calendars are available to you for a small donation of $10, $15, or $20 donation. You may donate any of the three amounts to receive all ten Calendars.
Please note this is a download product only. Nothing will be shipped. Please allow up to 48 hours for the Calendars to be emailed as this is only possible during our regular business hours. Calendars are for personal use only.
Water 1st's unique approach has led to the permanent installation of 1,426 water & sanitation projects in ten years which has transformed the lives of over 134,00 people in the world's poorest communities.
The lack of clean drinking water - something we take for granted every day - impacts children and oppresses women. According to Water 1st, over 5 million people, mostly children under the age of 5, die from water related illnesses each year. Every day, 200 million women and girls carry every drop of water their families use. 100 million children, mostly girls, receive no education because they are carrying water.
Most water projects typically fail within five years, yet ALL of the Water 1st installations are still operational today. This is because of their unique approach. I encourage you to read more about this wonderful organization.
So my sister took the Halloween in our Town and the Christmas in Our Town stamp sets, along with the landscape dies to create this amazing candle...wait til you see it lit!
So much detail cutting went into this design...all hand cut...no matching dies were used...she likes the closer cut...and she's good at it! She even cut out the windows...the banner in the window...the tree in the window....
Okay, I hope you are ready for this beautiful lit town.....here you go!
This is so much prettier in person,..thank you to my sister for being creative and inspiring.
You make my job FUN!
Here is another great card from Sylvia's card class. I love the new pinked edge dies...I have to add those to my list. The tree is from Halloween in our town and we used chalk to color up the background. Such a simple yet beautiful card.
I am back from hot and sunny California after visiting my daughter. Oh how beautiful it is on that side of the country. I am glad to be home and enjoying some beautiful fall weather!
This card was designed by Sylvia at her card class the other day. I love the brightness and fall colors...and that bear is just too cute holding that acorn. Happy Fall everyone! Enjoy this beauty of a day!
Hello all...I will be taking a break from blogging til next week. I am going to visit my daughter in California who is doing her Occupational Therapy rotation. I am not sure if I will see the beach but it's going to be a fun time! I'll have lots to share when I get back.
