Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Well isn't this a beautiful sight! Pumpkin Spice Muffins. Well I gotta tell ya, they are picture perfect!
And that is it! I am so disappointed in the taste - less -ness! How could you go wrong with pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg? I know it sounds so yummy - right? Well wrong oh!

I am going to have to work with this recipe before I share it. BUT - I had to share how beautiful they are and how wonderful they baked up in my Demarle cookware.

My hope for you is that all your Thanksgiving recipes turn out beautiful AND yummy!

Gratitude

Sarah Smith made this great card for our "Gratitude" themed card swap. I so love this tree from a past set. it was a great set that was retired way to soon. She used some great colors and the buttons are so cute on the tree. Love it Sarah, thanks for swapping.

Almost Holly

Well I think it is time to switch gears just for today. We all know it is coming, and for some I bet you are already done, shopping, wrapping, cards made and waiting to be mailed..... Okay okay get off the floor and stop laughing!

I have started thinking about Christmas, and as much as I (kinda) like the holiday, I am already wishing it was over! I don't like the mess of the tree and all the work it takes to decorate it and the house. I love the baking, but hate the sore feet from being in the kitchen for days on end. I do have one gift mailed - ya-ha! I am at a loss of what gifts to get the men in my life that are so hard to buy for. I do have a few stocking stuffing's purchased, but like most I am not ready for Christmas and all the hub bub that goes with it.

So I thought I would share a quick easy card to hopfully get our minds wrapped around whats to come.

I really like this stamp set and wanted to stretch its possibilities and use it for Christmas. Stamping the vine in Garden Green ink, and then punching the little berries out was perfect. I added some tiny pearls to dress it up a little too. The greeting and embossing folder is from the past, but still loved.
I used:
Card Stock: Whisper White, Real Red
Ink: Garden Green, Real Red
Other: Scallop Punch, Posies Embossing Folder, Pearls

Thanksgiving Swaps

Here are the last of the Thanksgiving Swaps for November. The cute card at the top is by Janice Rowe, and the beautiful card at the bottom is buy Georganne Caine.

Goodby Flowers

The last of these beautiful babies till another season. I couldn't let the frost get to these. It is always hard for me to clean out my flower beds while there are still blooms on. But were are in for some dropping temps and hard freezes and I  didn't want to do it while the ground was frozen. So off with there heads as the queen says... even if it makes me sad to put my garden to rest for a long winters nap.

Simple

Do you like simple cards as much as I do? The quicker the better. The thought is the same if you put 2 minutes or 20 minutes in the card. It came from the heart and you made it! You can clink on the purple underlined links to take you to the order page.

I used:
Card Stock: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist
Ink: Pear Pizzazz

Punch: The one I used is from the past, but Itty Bitty Accents wold work great.

This art journal page just makes me happy.
