Welcome to the December Blog Hop of the Creative Circle Design Team! Our theme this month is Home for the Holidays. I thought that our November Paper Pumpkin Kit was a perfect kit for me to showcase this theme. I love how all the pieces are laser cut and in three colors! I created the card exactly as the kit intended, this kit comes with two ink pads: Pear Pizzazz and Dapper Denim. I even loved the tiny dimensionals that came with this kit!
I wanted to come up with an alternative project with the kit, and thought of our clear 2″ boxes, I did trim the scene down to 4″ and scored it at 2″ to slide into the box and then included a battery operated candle, for a festive little gift idea.
I hope you like the projects today, I’m sorry this post is so short. My dear mother passed away and we had her funeral on Monday, and I’ve had out of town family staying with me. Although we knew that my mom had terminal lung cancer, nothing really prepares you when it happens. My faith, family, and friends have been of great comfort to me, as well as the sign my mom sent us from heaven within moments of her passing, can you see the angel? The sun was so blindingly bright and the clouds framed the sun immediately looking like angel wings. I know she is no longer in pain and is in a better place, but I am still grieving, and not quite back to all my activities and routines. Stamping has taken a back seat for the past three months, so I could spend more time with her and my family. I’m thankful to my team and customers for their understanding and support during this difficult time.
