This is just wonderful. I love all the comments for the blog candy. I already have a great idea for the Thanksgiving Holiday blog candy. My adorable son came home from OSU last night. I have not seen him yet he had a meeting today and I worked last night. I can't wait to just give him a hug. He also brought me a present. 5 loads of laundry. Oh well he's worth it. I wanted to post a picture of my all time favorite card. It was done in the fall colors as well. I just love this time of year.

Gosh this card was done way back in August of 06, and it is still my favorite.

No more blog candy in my signiture line at SCS.

Well I received a P.M. from SplitcoastStampers saying I need to take the blog candy reference out of my signature line. I hope it did not offend anyone. It was not my intention. They also wanted my to reduce my signature to 5 lines. I thought it was just 5 lines. Oh well it would only allow me to enter 2 with a space in between. I would like to know who complained. Oh well water under the bridge. Remember to scroll down to view the blog candy give away on October 1st.

Sympathy Card

I'm getting ready to run into town. I just wanted to do the limited supply challenge over at SCS. Jen does an awesome job at challenging me. This challenge was to make a sympathy card with little materials. No designer paper, that was the hard part for me. I used a SU background called fine lace with delight in life stamp set to stamp flowers on it. I like the colors of lavender and artichoke.

It is always hard to make a sympathy card when you need it, so it is nice to have them made up in advance. So here is a picture of the one I made today.

Blah day

Hmmm, I have not felt like doing much of anything this week. I don't know what is wrong with me. I guess I still am sad that Cory went back to school. I feel so tired. I tried to do one of the SCS challenges today. The color challenge, I really don't like the way the card turned out. Maybe I should go and try to do another or maybe just go and take a nap. As you can tell I like naps. Well here is a picture of the card let me know what you think.

What a weekend

This weekend was great. Cory came home from OSU and we were able to spend some great time with him. Ivi and Rick went fishing a couple of times and cought some great cat fish. I made Cory let me take some pictures of him. Of course Ivi wanted some taken of her as well. She is such a camera ham. I love it. Here are a couple of pictures I took.
