We had a wonderful time at our son's house yesterday. They built a fire in the fire pit and we sat around that during the afternoon. It was a little cool but not too cold to do that. My daughter in law made lunch for us and Paula Deen's ooey gooey butter cake. It was delicious. We celebrated our son's, granddaughter's and my birthdays for October. It's nice to all be together no matter what the occasion. Hubby was tired and we only stayed for three hours or so. He slept on the way home. That hospital trip exhausted him. He said this morning that "it's nice to be home".

The winner of my stamp giveaway is Louise. That's so funny that she won as she was my first comment and said "pick me, pick me"!  I will get it out in tomorrows mail. I hope you enjoy it.



This is a fun Halloween card that I used pumpkins from Lawn Fawn and a sentiment from DeNami. The straw paper is Colorbok and I don't know where the flower came from. I have a bunch of them in a jar so I guess you could say it came from the jar. I used Stickles for the center. Be kind to one another.
