Very beautiful card!

My co-blogger (2 year old daughter) likes the pumpkin best but thinks it should have been a jack-o-lantern. I could not dissaude her.

I'm amazed at folks like you who are able to put together a card that fits so many challenges. I find it hard to get a card done for ONE challenge! Great job!

This is so beautiful! I love your coloring on this image! I was also excited to see the background paper you used because I just bought some of it at Michael's last week and can't wait to use it! Thanks for the inspiration! Best, Curt

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
