Kylie's Bertucci's International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop

Hello all! Welcome to Kylie's Bertucci's International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop.
On November 6th we posted our challenge design in Kylie's International Highlight Facebook Group. There followed a vote for the top ten by the public. I was chosen #6 with this card! Very exciting!!!
For this hop, I went with my most favorite stamp set "Crafting Forever". Since I used the brush pot in the first card I went with the the pen stamp (single stamp with 3 pens) for the second card. I stamped the pens with Memento Black Ink and immediately sprinkled clear embossing power on it. After setting with the Heat Tool, I colored with Stamp 'n Write Markers and Vegas Gold Shimmer paint. It looks brown in the picture, but the gold is just beautiful in real life.

I love this font for the "Thank You" and also used it for both cards. It is from the Kindness & Compassion stamp set.
I thought the Delicate Lace Edgelit was perfect for this card. Still clean and simple, but just a touch of old charm.
Thank you for viewing and please hop along with the other winners:

NC Demos Nov. 2018 Blog Hop

Welcome to the North Carolina Demos Nov. 2018 Blog Hop! Our theme is Holiday Happenings. For me, my holiday happening is preparing for a Dec. 8th holiday pop-up shop at the Durham Center for Senior Life:

I started with 2 stamp sets, Making Every Day Bright and Making Christmas Bright, 3 ink pads and 3 sets of colored card stock.  Since we were camping in our RV when I was creating these candy treat holders, I was limited in supplies and just had to work with what I had. 

Once I was home I could attach the top labels to shaped labels and finally attach to the treat holders. By letting the shaped framelit hang off the side of folded paper, it creates an small shaped card.
Fun to make!
If you are local and in the Durham area on the 8th, please stop by and say hi! 9 am to 1 pm  406 Rigsbee Ave., Durham, NC 27701.

Here are the links to the other demos' blogs! I am sure you will enjoy their work.
