Awesome Projects & Creating Star-Shaped Boxes

These were the projects we created at Stamper's Club. 
So cute!  They were an absolute blast to make -
and everyone had a great time together,
laughing and teasing one another.  Good times.
So today while looking through YouTube, I found a way
 to make the star box open.  It's a great video - thought I'd share.
Hope you have a wonderful day - thanks so much for stopping by!

Snowy Day . . .

Brrrr!  I'm not ready for the cold yet.  Are you?
This is what it looks like right outside our house!!
I'm glad I got new gloves, hats, and scarves just the other day.
Also super glad I thought to wash all the winter coats and
get them ready for use. 
I just didn't realize they'd be needed so soon after cleaning!
Hope you stay warm today ~~ thanks for stopping by!

Thankful For . . . AAA Cards

This week at AAA Card Challenge, we are observing THANKS-giving!  
It's a great time, too, since this fun Thanks or Thanksgiving card challenge 
will still be going strong from now and the next two weeks which will be 
over the American Thanksgiving holiday
 of November 27.  
Here's my CAS take on the Thanksgiving - or giving thanks - theme
Thanksgiving isn't just a US thing, though.  Several other countries 
around the world observe similar celebrations - dates for 2014:
Canada - October 13; 
Liberia - November 6
Norfolk Island - November 26; and 
the US - November 27.

Looking forward to seeing your Thank-You 
and/or Thanksgiving cards during this 
challenge - Thanks so much for stopping by~~

Thank You to Veterans - Happy Veteran's Day

We owe our Veterans so much Gratitude.
According to Wikipedia:
Veteran's Day is an official US holiday that honors
people who have served in the US Armed Forces, also
known as veterans. It's a federal holiday - so banks, post offices,
and all federal buildings are closed - like courthouses, and the 
Patent and Trademark Office (which is the one that really affects me at work). 
This holiday is observed on November 11. It coincides with other
holidays such as Armitice Dayand Remembrance Day, which are
celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of
the end of World War I (major hostilities of World War I were formally
ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918,
when the Armistice with Germany went into effect). The United States
also originally observed Armistice Day; it then evolved into the
current Veteran's Day holiday in 1954.
Veteran's Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day; Veterans Day
celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while
Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women
who died while serving.
Hope you have a wonderful Veteran's Day!  Thanks for stopping by!!
