**BLOG CANDY** Dreamweaver Stencils Dream Scheme Thursday!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Not just today, but everyday, I have so much to be thankful for!!  I am thankful for my wonderful family, a great Husband, four fabulous kids, three dogs, the list goes on and on!!!

I am thankful to work for a fabulous lady, Lynell Harlow and her AMAZING company, Dreamweaver Stencils.  It is because of Lynell that I have the the fun, exciting, innovative job that I have!!

She gave me an opportunity a bit over a year ago that really has made me learn and grow so much. 

I have always heard those inspirational sayings about “reach for the stars and you will touch them”, but I  found out this year, for the first time in my 39 years, that those are true, they are not just inspirational sayings. 

I bought myself a wrist cuff that I wear almost daily that says “ She took a leap of FAITH, and on the way down she grew wings”.    This is what the saying looks like on the cuff.

Lenny & Eva Large Sentiment {She took a leap of FAITH....}

I love it so much, it brings tears to my eyes.  It really does say what the last year has been like for me, a leap of faith!   I want to take this opportunity to thank Lynell for making me realize that I could do things that I only dreamed about. 

Here is the the project I made today…

Dreamweaver112411

I dry embossed this fabulous frame Twisted Leaf Oval with Gold Aluminum and paste embossed the pretty font of the Thank You stencil.

 

   

Once the Glossy Black paste was dry, I trimmed around the aluminum frame.  I used some seriously old corner punches that I just recently recovered from a drawer and adhered my focal image to black velvet paper with dimensionals.

A few days ago, I posted that I was going to have a few giveaway’s when I reached 300 blog followers.  As a few hours ago, I had passed 300 followers and as my way of saying THANK YOU, three giveaway’s, one from each company I design for.   I am giving away a Happy Birthday and the Heliconia Butterfly stencils…

I will be announcing give-a way's today (from Dreamweaver Stencils), this Saturday (from Stampendous) and Tuesday(Skipping Stones Designs).  I will be giving away all three prizes on Saturday December 3rd!!  If you’re already a follower, great, but you can also help me get the word out by posting this giveaway on your blog and then let me know you posted in the comment section!!! 

Check out what the other members of the Dream Team are up today and you will get some fabulous inspiration on the journey.  There are links to all their blogs to the right of this post.

Have you ever thought you’d like to be on the Dream Team??? We are looking for a few gals to join us.  We want to see your creations even if you haven’t ever held a stencil in your hand.  Get all the details at Dream It Up!!

Happy Thanksgiving all!!!

Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.

Hey, Wendy--great job! I, too, am thankful for Lynell and Dreamweaver Stencils. I love that the paste is adhered to the metal like that!

I always believed that in many points dreamweaver is really a powerful tool in terms of stenciling.
