Halloween Card ~ Thanks

Lawn Fawn is one of my favorite stamp and die companies.
I usually shop for them at my little local craft shop.
When I saw they had all their Halloween stamps and dies 
50% off  I ran right there and picked up all the Lawn Fawn 
Halloween sets they had. How could I not. LOL

Thinking of You Card ~ Fall Flourish

I switched gears a little and created my card with a fall color combo.
We went straight from 65-70 degree weather to pouring rain.
We had record rainfall here and many of the streets are flooding.
All the sweet leaves that have fallen are now in mushy piles on the ground.

Breast Cancer Awareness Card ~ Hang In There

Last year I asked the very sweet Diana from DL Art where she got the ribbon
embossing folder she used on her card and guess what this sweetie did?
She couldn't help me with locating a folder but she sent me
an assortment of ribbon embossed card stock.
I used one of those for my card base. Thanks Diana.

Breast Cancer Awareness Card ~ Always On My Mind

I have another quick post today.
I made this card to post on Wednesday then got real sick.
I stayed home from work Thursday and today.

She faced her fight with unbelievable courage.
Mom this one's for you. You are always on my mind.
