I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

MPC Giving Thanks Blog Hop

Hello everyone!!!  Thanks for stopping by. I have a couple of projects to share with you today using Unity Stamps and Tombow.
My first project is a cute gift berry basket I made using a template.
 I assembled it using Tombow'Extreme tape runner. This stuff is super strong! I used brads to decorate the basket and applied some super pretty quilled roses that Marilynn gave me using the Tombow Aqua liquid glue. Again, wonderful stuff. 

Lastly, I made a card and put the Extreme tape runner to the test against the burlap. I'm completely in love with these Tombow product. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
