I'm back!

This week is the Stampin' Friends Blog Hop and sadly, I have been MIA for a few months. But I'm Back. This month I am getting back into the swing of things. We have changed a few details on this hop so it might look a little different, but I promise you will see some amazing projects if you visit each blog! Also, we are giving away a big prize this month.

  • You must comment on each of the blogs in the hop. 
  • You must use the #SFbloghop2017. 
  • We will need an email to get in toouch with you if you win!
That's it! So grab a cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, apple cider ...you get the idea and sit back and be inspired with our Fall projects this Thursday, September 21. Hope to see you back here! Have a great day, be blessed and be a blessing to someone in need.
I think I'm off to make some Pumpkin Spice cookies!!!

Love Stamping in Dixie,

If at first you don't succeed...

Try, Try, TRY again!!! I have heard this all my life! and I guess it's the reason I refuse to give up on this blog. I have to admit it seems like no one is reading it, so why bother? Because while it is extremely frustrating at times, I'm just not techie at all, it would be easier to give up! But at almost a half a century plus 10, I kind of enjoy the challenge of learning something new and I really do hope I am connecting with some of you out there who might feel the same way. I do love my stamping business and it is growing and so must I. So please don't give up on me! I will continue to muddle through the technology and attempt to bring you some fun and creative projects to inspire you to create. Y'all can help! Please leave me a comment when you see something you like! That's all I ask. Thanks. So, today's inspirational thought is " We all have a job to do. I need to do mine, you need to do yours. I shouldn't try to do yours! In some situations my job might be to just pray and ask God to take care of things. Now, this is the really hard part! I have to let go and let Him do HIS job. Somethings I can not fix, change, or  even understand- BUT and it's a big but, I can take it to the One who does, leave it there and let HIM do HIS job! Ladies, this is a very freeing concept! I am not responsible to do God's job. I am responsible to bring my issues to Him and get out of HIS way! Okay, end of sermonette!

 I love Fall! I am so ready for it. Of course, here in Dixieland Fall is more in your mind than in the weather. School, football, pumpkins starting to show up everywhere, cotton starting to bloom- these are the signs of fall. It probably is still hot as you know where!- so don't think it's going to get cooler or that my flip flops or shorts are getting put away! but we can still enjoy this gorgeous time of the year. So when I saw this Painted Harvest stamp set I was instantly in love! And the Designer Series Paper that goes along with it is absolutely beautiful! I have had a ball playing with different colors. This one is Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Soft Suede. The leaves (which aremade with a new punch!!!!) are in Lemon Lime Green!(a new In Color)
Hope you like this one as much as me. If you'd like to get the product to make some here is the list of what I used:
Painted Harvest  (144783), Leaf Punch (144667), Painted Harvest Autumn Designer Paper (144613) Cajun Craze cardstock (119684), and ink (126965),

Well, hope you have a grand day! Be a Blessing to someone you come across today! You will be the one blessed!
                                                  Love y'all and Peach Tea!
