Watercooler October Blog Hop!

The watercooler is hopping again! Busy with projects for the holidays, we hope that we can help with inspiration for your own projects.  As always our hop runs in a circle, so click on the links until you are back where you started.  If you did not start here, you may have come from Terri's blog, either way welcome!

First a Curvy Keepsake box, A Turkey for Thanksgiving, a Pilgrim turkey!

Stamps: None
Ink: None
Paper Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, Tangelo Twist, Basic Black, Real Red and Whisper White CS
Misc: Circles & Scallops & Artisan & Mosaic Punches, Liquid Multipurpose Glue. 

I have been making Christmas cards! I am using both current and retired stamps, bringing stamps that I have loved through the years out and inking them up again. I have seen variations of this card the last couple of years and thought I'd give it a try.

Stamps: Serene Silhouettes, greeting is retired
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Real Red, Pool Party, Soft Sky, Marina Mist
Paper: Marina Mist, Real Red CS and Watercolor Paper
Misc: Aqua Painter and Dazzling Details

This is a card that looks so much better in real life instead of as a photo!

Stamps: Good Greetings
Ink: Cherry Cobbler & Garden Green
Paper: Basic Gray, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Basic Black & Garden Green

Remember the punch art card I made in this post?  Well, I created a Curvy Keepsake box to go with it! I'm pretty proud of it. Often with these Curvy Keepsakes my jumping off point is a CASE often with a variation of someone else's box. Not this time!

Stamps: None
Ink: Old Olive
Paper: Old Olive, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight. Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry
Misc: Curvy Keepsake Box Framelit, Ovals Collection Framelits, Extra large Oval Punch, Build a Bird Punch, Owl Builder Punch

I will be doing a class on Punch Art Curvy boxes, this will be one of the boxes we will be making.

Itty Bitty Banners- Thank You

I know I have mentioned it before but I have had a great need for thank you cards this year.  It has been a year full of surgeries for my husband and myself.  In February my husband had total knee replacements for both his knees. June I had both of my knee scoped, September I had a partial rotator cuff tear repaired as well as a spur removed and two of the bones shaved down in my right shoulder. Next month I'll have my left shoulder done. Through out all of the recoveries we have had many friends and neighbors help us out, we have had many meals brought to us. Thus the need for Thank you cards.

Stamps: Itty Bitty Banners
Ink: Baked Brown Sugar and Crisp Cantaloupe
Paper: Whisper White, Crumb Cake CS and Lullaby DSP
Misc: Tea Time Doilies, Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Bakers Twine, Lucky Stars Embossing Folder
