Stitched Stockings

I went to breakfast at the club house this morning and found out that a neighbor had died this week. He was only in his late 50's and had just totally redone his house and bought a new pick up that hadn't even received it's new license as yet. It really makes me think how fragile life is and how it can be snuffed out in a blink of an eye. I think God may be saying make the most of today it may be your last. We do tend to take things for granted and we certainly should not do that. I would say live this day to the fullest, do whatever good you can do for someone else and enjoy every moment of it.

Now on to happier things. It's a beautiful day and I am working on cards for Saturday's card class. Thinking I would rather be at the bay watching the boats and reading a good book. Maybe tomorrow if I get everything done today. We are supposed to have a cooler week and maybe some rain so I should enjoy the sunshine while I can. 

Here is the 3rd card from September's card class. I really love this new stamp set and matching punch. I am so glad we are getting more of the punches to match stamp sets. My people really love punches, they say they work much better than scissors.(lol)

I used Always Artichoke 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 for the main card. Riding Hood Red is 4 x 5 1/4, Confetti White is 3 3/4 x 5. The sentiment is from Many Merry Messages and stamped in Riding Hood Red ink. The stockings are done in Garden Green and Riding Hood Red ink. The accessories used are: the Stocking Punch, Jingle Bells, Linen Thread, Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots.

Thanks for stoppin' in and I'll see you tomorrow.
