It’s hard to believe, but it’s time to start making your Christmas projects for this year! This tutorial shows how to make four, festive Christmas ornaments for your Christmas tree. The ornaments feature the Pretty Pines Thinlits, Starlight Thinlits, and the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Pack. These ornaments would also be perfect for decorating the outside of your Christmas gifts. This would make a great Christmas class, too.

SU Acorny Thanks with Sheltering Tree

I have been stepping on acorns everywhere as I walk in both Pittsburgh and Orlando these last two months. I can’t keep my grandpuppies out of them! And, boy do they jump when one pops down on them:)
Here’s a pic of the little rascals, Archie and Lucy.

Those dancing acorns got me to thinking of the cute SU Acorny Thanks stamp set…got me to perusing Pinterest…lead me to a neat card by my friend, Patsy Waggoner, who I got to meet and hang out with on a trip last year:)

You can see how I changed up the colors using some fun colors that were asking to be used, added some embossing on the die cut panel, and used a different sentiment but the layout Patsy created was just so great I went with it!  I love the grateful sentiment in the set but seem to always need birthday cards so I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from Thoughtful Banners cut out with the Classic Label punch.
