A Champion Birthday

Today is my husband’s birthday. He is a huge sports fan! His favorite hockey team is the Washington Capitals and he has waited his whole life for them to win the Stanley Cup Championship! Needless to say he was thrilled last June! For his birthday I bought him tickets to a Caps game and a commemorative bottle of bubbly. I always like to make my cards match the gift; however, I didn’t have any hockey related stamps. I played around and decided to make my own hockey sticks.

I always loved origami as a kid and though this really doesn’t qualify (it’s held together with glue dots! LOL), it does the trick.  I used the Perennial Birthday stamp set for the simple sentiment and the team colors for my card.

The inside sentiment is from Labels to Love. (The die is retired.)

Made by Liza Stucker

This Spooktacular Halloween sampler was sent to me from Liza Stucker.  I can not even imagine the hours that went in to creating this awesome project! It will be framed and treasured for years to come! I love all the 3D and details on each!

My friend Susan is the queen of gift wrapping and always does an amazing job with her presentation.  This sweet surprise was left on my doorstep. What a treat to come home to delicious homemade ginger cookies after school! Yum!

Halloween friend card

My friend Paula and I filled treat bags this week for our local shelter. Sister Corda used to volunteer there and would bring them her homemade candy and treats.  We put special stickers on the bags in loving memory of Sister Corda. The workers at Reach and the homeless that come through the doors miss Sister Corda too!
I enjoy Halloween! My kids come dressed in costumes and we parade all around the school.  I get to dress up every year too! Usually I am a storybook character but this year I changed it up a bit and decided to go as a character from a nursery rhyme my students just learned. Can you guess which one?
Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is filled with kind people and may your blessings be “three bags full”!
