Beautiful Blossoms

A very quick post today as I am on my way out but wanted to share another project. This card is made using paper from the echo park paper company, beautiful flowers from prima (aren't ALL their flowers beautiful??), Making Memories metal frame, lace, ribbon and pearl stick-ons. As October comes to an end, I must get going with my Christmas projects not to mention move my Christmas shopping along a bit.

Well....I'm off for my walk. Will try to catch up with everyone in the not too distance future. Have a great weekend and thanks for looking.

Autumn Leaves

Just as my days off started last week, I was blessed to find myself struck down with a dreaded cold. For the past three days, I have barely made it out of bed and, worst of all, missed Thanksgiving dinner. So, it was with great determination that I willed myself to go for a nice long walk today along part of the Culham Trail which goes along the river here in town.

It was the perfect day for a walk - not too hot or cold and hardly anyone out and about. The trail is quite heavily wooded in some areas. This scares me a bit when I hear rustling as I keep expecting some large animal to leap out and attack me. The most I have seen is a skunk, a chipmunk, a small snake or a large worm, one frog and a bunch of squirrels. I'm loving this fall weather and vote that we just skip winter this year.

Paws for thought

I was asked to make a sympathy card for "Ben", a dog who recently passed away. I thought the black paw prints and sparkly bone were so cute and reminiscent of a beloved and sadly missed pet. Our animals certainly do give us "paws for thought" and become such an integral part of our lives.
