TSOT93 with Make It Monday


I hope everyone in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving day!  It was nice to spend time with my family.  I did have a little stamping time, and I got some new stampin’ goodies that were itching to get inky!  I was just playing around with some scraps when I stumbled on the Try Stampin on Tuesday sketch for this week:

And here we go:


Isn’t that the cutest little tree… well as the heart?  I probably should have reversed the colors, but as I said, I was just sort of playing around!


My next one uses a pretty reindeer image with some embossed backgrounds and a vintage newspaper designer paper:


I’m entering this one in The Kraft Journal’s Make It Monday: Holiday Cards!


I have an awesome stash of Christmas cards to send this year!  Remember, if you have any questions, just shoot me an email!

I don’t have any Thanksgiving pictures of Cassidy, but I do have a couple from last week, when she was nursing her sick baby doll:

Taking her temperature with an emery board “thermometer”:


Checking her ears with the nose syringe:


And making sure her teeth were very, very clean (note she has TWO toothbrushes!):


What a great imagination!  Have a great day!


  1. The tree card is very pretty, but the deer one is my favorite. Hope you all had a great day yesterday. Enjoy the day off.

  2. Wow both fantastic cards LeAnne. Love the sentiment and that tree on your first card.

  3. Two great cards Deb. Love the way you embossed the DP on the first one and the cute country tree. Great reindeer image on the second and use of the EF. Enjoy the rest of your long weekend and good luck shopping!!

  4. LeAnne: Well first, I want to say that your cards is gorgeous. I'm a big fan of pressure embossing even though I don't do it nearly as often as I should. It gives such dimension and warmth to your card - great job!
    I also want to mention how ADORABLE these photos are. My girls are now 20 & 25, but it seems like yesterday when they were playing dolls. My daughter, Lily, used to pretend she was "nursing" (breast-feeding) her baby doll. LOL I had her younger brother, who I was nursing, and she thought that was the ultimate sign of motherly affection, so she needed to take care of her dollies as well. Too funny! This brings back such fond memories.
    Thanks for sharing with us at The Kraft Journal. You've warmed my heart with your beautiful art, and your awesome photos. Thanks for sharing, and have a blessed week!

  5. Glad you had time to play LeAnne! Both of these are lovely! I like that the tree is red and the heart is green. I like unexpected!

  6. Your cards are absolutely amazing! I am swooning! Love the tree on the first and the reindeer on the second!

    Sweet and precious photos too!

    So happy you shared your talents with us at The Kraft Journal this week!

  7. These are both super cute, LeAnne! I love that the heart is green and the tree red on the first, it;s unexpected, and it looks really cool! Hope you had an awesome thanksgiving! *hugs*

  8. Oh MY! Love these to pieces! You did a fantastic job! Very country feel! Lots to take in! Thank you for sharing and playing along with us at TSOT!

  9. Love them both LeAnne - but I really do love that prancing deer - maybe it's the vintageness of it that I love!

  10. Your cards are lovely - really like how you've embossed the DSP (must give that a try). Thanks for playing along at TSOT.

  11. Wow LeAnne as usual your cards are wonderful:) Love the reverse colours of the tree and heart-so cute and effective. And the second card is lovely and elegant. Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

  12. So beautiful! Your techniques are perfect. Your designs are awesome! Thanks for playing at Try stampin'.
