November's Stamp Time

November was the last Stamp Time until spring. December is always too busy and I'll be busy packing and reading the house while we're in FL, AND I'm sure my girls and brother won't want to jump in and take over while they are house-sitting. HA! And those of you who know Heather really KNOW that she'd NEVER do that! lol She is NOT a crafty lady. Surprisingly enough, I still love her. Go figure. heehee We had a great Thanksgiving, though the following day was bitter sweet for me as Amber moved to Milwaukee. I hated to see her move. It was so nice having her a house away from Heather's but, alas, she's gone. Thankfully Amber's job gave her a great opportunity to work from home so she didn't need to leave a job she loves, though she will surely miss her awesome co-workers. Ok, ST...we had fun again this month and missed having some of our regulars with us, BUT we did make some nice projects/cards. Here are our projects/cards! The color in the photo of the Gift Bag is NOT accurate at all. It was nice reds and greens, AND actually matched. lol Gerri Morgan was really happy about that. She thought I must have lost my mind, according to the picture. (Apparently she doesn't realize I lost my mind YEARS ago...silly girl!) All right...enough babbling...here are the photos!
This was such a simple card with adorable die cut flowers! Ribbon was actually white and colored with Copic markers to achieve the perfect match! Gotta love Copics!!
Gift bag, had way nicer coloring in REAL life, is made out of 2 12x12 double-sided pieces of cardstock. Easy Peasy!
Another adorable card, thanks to whoever's idea it was on Pinterest! I love the Stampin'Up owl punch because it has so many options for creating, like these darling Penguins!! FUN!!
Yes, we did a little bit of watercoloring. I think mine was sort of lame but everyone else's turned out nicely with a great watercolor effect!
