Bible Study Fellowship started up again last week. September 2017 through May 2018 we are studying the Book of Romans.  The mission of Bible Study Fellowship is global, in-depth Bible classes producing passionate commitment to Christ, His Word and His Church. There’s classes all over the world.  Please click on the link and see if there’s a class near you. I’m a group leader again this year and I like to bring little treats for my group every now and then.  With a few supplies from Stampin’ Up, I… I mean we, put together a few treats.

When you open the card, there’s another fun pumpkin hiding inside!  This makes me really happy.  Hopefully the recipient will smile when they find the hiding pumpkin. 🙂

Here’s the Spooky Cat version of the card.  These cards are really fun to make.  Would it surprise you to know that I have six more versions, but I was afraid you might not want to see each one? 🙂

Basic Black strip 1″ x 10-1/2″ scored at 2-1/2″ and 5″  Adhere the 2-1/2″ part right above the Spooky DSP.  The black strip is not adhered to anything from 2-1/2″ to 8. Adhere the 8″ to 10-1/2″ to the front of the card

Cajun Craze Circle is largest Stitched Shapes framelits circle

Very Vanilla Circle is the second largest Layering Circle framelit

At the very bottom of this post you can see all the supplies I used to make these projects and also the Halloween children’s book that inspired my family’s love of Halloween and Pumpkin parties.

Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on October 11, 2017 for “Wicked Folds”. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We’d love to hear what you have to say about our Favorite Holiday.  By the way, what’s your favorite holiday?



 So every year on Trick or Treat night we used to invite our friends and family over for a Pumpkin Party.  My kids loved having this party because they were inspired by one of our very favorite books called, “Too Many Pumpkins.” I’ve read this book hundreds of times and I can’t wait to read it to my grandchildren someday. With countless unwelcome pumpkins to deal with, Rebecca Estelle turns disaster into a celebration. One day, years and years later, white-haired Rebecca was busy not eating pumpkins when–SPLAT–a giant pumpkin fell off an overloaded truck and smashed into her yard. She buried the mess so she wouldn’t have to look at it, and, as you might imagine, she witnessed a bumper crop the following fall, “Too Many Pumpkins” by Linda White.  Here’s a link to the book.

Painted Harvest

I have exciting news today.  I’ve been asked to be a designer for the Splitcoast Stampers Creative Crew!  I’ve been praying that I would get on another design team, but was shocked when I got the email. 🙂  I get to design five projects each month for Sept-Dec. 2017. The best part is all of you can play along.

The first challenge was to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) project of your choosing with nature and fall in mind. Then create a second project, amped up with more enrichments, additions, layers, really step it up.

Stampin Up Clean and Simple (CAS) Painted Harvest card designed by demo Beth McCullough. Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #clean&simple4u

I used Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake (dots).  The Painted Harvest stamp set is so easy to use and very versatile.

On the second card I “stepped it up” by fussy cutting a flower and popping it up on a dimensional with Linen Thread behind it.  I also added Linen thread to the banner.  I used Clear Emboss Powder and heat embossed the sentiment.  That always looks cool in real life.  I doubt you can tell by the picture.  I also added a Crushed Curry layer on the card.  The envelope looks cute with the flower in the corner.

My Irish twins!  I love this picture! This was the first day of Kindergarten for Keegan and First Grade for Abby.  If you look close you can see there are pink beads crocheted to Abby’s socks.  My sweet Grandma, Grandma Olson, taught me how to crochet well enough that I could add beads to Abby’s socks to match her outfits.  I was so thrilled to have a girl that I did crazy things like crocheting beads on socks and making handmade hair pieces to go on Abby’s ponytail or pigtails.  Wow, I miss those days.  I thought I’d give you an update on Abby.  She loves being at college.  She’s made lots of great friends, found a church and youth group she likes, gets along great with her room mate, and loves her classes, especially Organic Chemistry.  There’s even a cute boy I hear about from time to time. I get texts from her that say, “I’m so happy” and “I love Organic Chemistry!”  A few months ago I couldn’t imagine not seeing and talking to Abby everyday.  Today it is easier knowing that she is doing what she loves and is in a very good place.  I pray things continue to go well for Abby and she thrives at college and stays safe.

Steve just came in to see what I was up to.  I showed him the Irish Twin picture and we both got tears in our eyes.  I’m not sure we are ready to be emptynesters. 🙂

Speaking of my Superman, (husband Steve), he got his best time ever in his Sprint Triathlon last weekend.  He was pleased and decided he wants to do triathlons again next summer.  His goal is to get a medal (top 3) in his age division.  He’s gotten fourth or fifth a few times during the last three summers but never has made it to the medal stand.  Three years ago he lost 50lbs and did his very first triathlon.
