Snowman Greetings......FMS411

Who knew that the scarf from Merry Moose would perfectly fit the snowman from Snowman Season?  So glad I checked my snippets bowl where an extra scarf was hanging out!  It's keeping that snowman cozy while he wishes everyone a Merry Christmas!

 Kim's wonderful design was perfect for my happy snowman!  Join us at Freshly Made Sketches!

Season of Feasts......FMS410

So much good food on the horizon for November and December!  Stretchy pants are a must!  We went to a Harry Potter themed feast this past weekend at a local inn.  It was so much fun.  Emma dressed as Hermione and all of the kids got a chance to go through the sorting ceremony.

Emma was hoping for Ravenclaw but was selected for Slytherin.  We sat at long banquet tables for dinner that was served by various characters from the book.  Moaning Myrtle was our team leader!  After our feast we had a gaming competition and Slytherin won!  Miss Emma felt much better then about being in Slytherin as she won a goodie bag that contained a  magic wand!

It was a fun night with my partner in crime!

It is my turn to host this week at Freshly Made Sketches - hope you join us!

Stamp Review Crew: Cup of Christmas

The Stamp Review Crew is featuring Cup of Christmas today......but it is "only" November!  So I pulled out some fall colors and created a welcoming trio of mugs.  Nothing better than a warm cuppa with friends on a cold dreary November day!  So hop around and see what my stamping friends have created!  

Ann Schach always has something wonderful to share!

And don't miss Cindy Elam's fabulous work either!


I used the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments as the basis of my design.

And it is time for another Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop - always a fun event and so full of inspiration!

Fusion: Mermaid

I loved the inspiration photo at Fusion this week but there was one slight problem - I don't have one mermaid image anywhere!  Hard to believe but I am just not a mermaid fan.....might have something to do with my strange fear of fish!  But inspiration always abounds at Fusion so I went with the sketch and the color scheme from the photo - a fresh look for Halloween!  And since it is Halloween perhaps those ghosts are actually mermaids in costume to celebrate the day!

Have fun with the delightful inspiration at Fusion this week!
