thomas kinkade papers

Good Monday Morning Stampers! How was everyone's weekend? Did you get lots of stuff done? Well, I got the laundry done today, got the Sunday school year off to a good start at church, and made something.

There isn't much stamping involved but I used the fabulous new Thomas Kindkade papers from Cornish Heritage Farms. The papers have 8x8, 4x4, and 2x2 sizes of images such as the Lighthouses, Cobblestone Cottage, and many others. Anyway, I wanted to dress up a wine bottle gift bag so I grabbed out the paper, cut it to the size I needed, and there it is. Just a little bit nicer than before. Oh, and I used a Lisa Strahl set called Script Essential Expressions,also from CHF, on the tag. It says "thankful for you." Inside the bag is a wonderful bottle of Icicle Ridge Chardonnay. I'm hoping the recipient will like this!

So today I get to go to the dentist for a cleaning...woohoo...NOT! I would prefer to do many things other than go to the dentist even though I don't really have to many problems. But, happily, after that I'll come home and get to do some stamping...can I get a big WOOHOO for that??!!

Please keep everyone that was in the path of Hurricane Ike in your prayers especially our Courtney. She is safe and so is her family but her house isn't in great shape and she hasn't seen her husband so please pray, pray, pray!

I love Thomas Kinkade and so I love the paper. I so need to get some but I am sure if I did I wouldn't use it.
Sorry to hear about the dentist. I don't even want to think about going. But I so need to.
My thoughts and prayers are with Courtney and her family.

Wow, I had no idea there were TK papers. What a great idea to use them on a gift bag like this! I need to go to a winery and find a wine I like. I want to be like the big kids. :)
