It's November!

Fall is in full swing, the weather goes from being beautiful one day to freezing the next.  We just have to keep checking the weather to be prepared or we end up like I was today, wearing a sweatshirt when it is 70 degrees!

I had a workshop today and it was great, we did a punch art turkey and Santa.  The turkey was on a skinny bag and the Santa covered a Hershey Nugget.  The ladies enjoyed the punch art, it is one of my favorite things to do.  I'm so glad Stampin' Up has such great punches and there are so many creative demonstrators who share their ideas so I can look good at workshops!

Here is a beautiful Fall swap card from Shirley Hotop.  It features the glitter window technique.  See how the Dazzling Diamonds are in the middle of the circle?  It is a great technique that will surely come to a class I teach real soon.  It would be great for a Christmas card too, hummm, which stamp set can I use???

There wasn't a name on the back of this swap and I can't seem to get the colors right in the new photo program so it is kind of washed out but it is very pretty in person. 
Here it is opened.  It is a mini post-it notes easel card.  It is so cute and is a great way to let someone know you are thinking of them.

I thought I'd share a picture of my house.  It is in there somewhere!  This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago when the leaves were just starting to change.  They have nearly all fallen off now so if I had remembered to take a picture today you cold actually see the house there among the trees.  My husband spent quite a bit of time raking the yard Saturday.  I reckon I know what he will be doing again this weekend!
Happy Fall Yall!
