FUN weekends always include stamping!

We have had a really good weekend with Darcie and Emily. I'll post a few pictures at the end of what we did this with ourselves, but Darcie and I share a love of stamping, so I thought I'd post what she came up with Saturday while we were playing. The set is called Autumn Harvest, and it's really really pretty! I showed Darcie Amy Westerman's blog post of her pumpkin card made with designer paper, and we then started looking through my scraps. I love the result!

We also came up with a very easy, quick placecard for Thanksgiving. I really like these line art drawings. They're so classic. We just used the Really Rust and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers on Very Vanilla, some Really Rust scraps I had to create the stripe, and mounted it all on a piece of 3 1/8" x 4" Old Olive, scored at 2". Easy peasy lemon squeezy, and adorable! One thing I suggested that could be a meaningful activity with these at her family gathering is have each family member choose a placecard after dinner and write something inside that they're thankful for about the person whose name is on the front.

Our dear friends go home today, and we will be sad to see them go. Here are some shots of the memories we made at Amicalola Falls and Uncle Shuck's Corn Maze. Thanks for stopping by today!

Fun at the start of the corn maze.
Gorgeous kids with pretty pumpkins.
