November is the perfect time to count our blessings, and I know that I am very blessed to be the mommy of a fur baby! Our pets hold a special place place in out hearts, and we are all very lucky indeed when a dog or cat chooses US to love!

I used a few Paper Sweeties stamp sets to create this tiny puppy in the tea cup! The little dog is from Sweeties Pets, the cup is from Eat Cake, the pumpkin and flower is from Thankful, and the tiny leaves are from the Planner Series: Fall Sentiments!

Tag You’re It Challenge #75

Hello Everybody!

Today I am playing along with the TYIC Challenge #75. Featured Artist Marcia Hill has created such a pretty scene to welcome in Autumn. If you hurry, you can still play along and link up your Autumn card over at the TYIC Blog right here: http://tagyoureitchallenge.blogspot.com/2017/10/tag-youre-it-75.html

I brought out my copic markers and a few Paper Sweeties stamps to create an Autumn Blessings tag. I had created a card with a similar design for the Paper Sweeties Blog, and always thought it would look pretty on a tag. I added a few highlights with some glitter and glue, to remind me of the frosty mornings ahead for most of us!

This particular Autumn season has been difficult. My hubbie got downsized in August, and we have been busy setting up a lot of Google Hang Outs and traveling for interviews, mostly in Florida where we would like to relocate. We try to remain positive while the process takes so long to complete. Of course, it’s stressful, and full of worries about the future, our security, and how to get to where we want to be. I appreciate the thoughts and prayers, and especially the very sweet cards and notes that I have received from a few crafty friends. That’s one of the things that I am most grateful about this fall! Keep those fingers crossed, those prayers coming, and love in your heart!

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Paper Sweeties Challenge – October 2017: Anything Goes

Hello Everybody!

Welcome to the Paper Sweeties Challenge for October 2017! This month, our theme is anything goes! We can’t wait to see your ideas this month! You can always find great inspiration over at the paper Sweeties Blog right here: https://papersweeties.com/

Take a look at what I have created for you this month!

The top photo is a little dark, due to the long shadows and fading afternoon light of Autumn.  I used a few of my favorite Paper Sweeties stamps to create an Autumn arrangement, then added a little bit of glittery color to imitate a little sparkly frost on an October morning.

Take a look at what our design team has created for you this month!
