Veterans from WWII, the Korean War and Vietnam were welcomed home from a day full of activities that started in the wee hours of the morning with their flight to Washington, DC to take part in a celebration of their service to our country and ended with a show of admiration and love as these women and men returned home to the St. Louis area.
This past week I was honored with a request to write a letter to Rich Cotter, a veteran of the United States Navy, who served in Vietnam.
To all of our service men and women worldwide, I thank you for your time, your service and your sacrifice, for without doing what you do and have done, I would not be doing what I do.

As you know from reading previous posts on my blog, stamping is one of the ways I find peace in my life.
As a result of that, bringing stamping to others is very rewarding for me. Helping people learn that life is about "the moment" and not about "getting to the moment" is an ongoing goal of mine.
I remember the past and living day to day, making sure the girls had what they needed, that my husband had what he needed and that all was well. I think I got so caught up in moving forward that I often forgot to enjoy those precious moments that are there but for a brief time. So easy to do...
This past weekend I had my Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack and we had a glorious time! Every time a group of stampers gets together great memories are made, conversations are had, and things are accomplished.
to find out which card was everyone's favorite. The card with green and gold took the majority vote. Let me know what YOU think and if you want measurements, etc., contact me and I'll be happy to give those to you:) Happy stamping!--Tammie

Our granddaughters came to visit us this last weekend and Julia wanted to stamp with me. I knew the absolute perfect project! She stamped and assembled this Witch's Hat in about an hour and had a lot of fun doing it!

I will continue bringing my craft to the surrounding communities of St. Louis. So much to share and time to do it!!
Time(?), you say...
Yes, time...We all make time for the things that are important to us.
I love what I do...
Have a great weekend!

...and have you had the opportunity to use the Curvy Corner Trio Punch in the Holiday Catalog (pg 18)? So easy and adds such elegance!
Bling is one of my favorite things when making cards or any other paper craft. Glimmer and rhinestones are just the right addition, with that in mind!!
Have fun creating your cards today using these items. They'll quickly become your favorites, too...I have no doubt;)

What do you think, Christmas...or...baby...?
With all the supplies at your fingertips (or waiting to be ordered;), you can make either.
Have fun designing, imagining and creating.

When you have such intricate designs in your stamp and/or your embossing tools, you really don't need any other embellishment, but I just couldn't resist. As you can see, I heat embossed my sentiment and added the Gold Glimmer Paper for that sparkle I wanted. The Gold Foil for the outline of my ornament, as well as the poinsettia, topper and hanger just finished this card off.
Enjoy making your own ornaments for your cards, your tree or wherever you want to decorate. Very easy and very elegant!
Have a great Sunday!
