Yesterday turned out to be a perfect day. It started in the 40's but by three it was beautiful. We tailgated at my granddaughters house and there must have been 50 people come through during the afternoon. We had plenty of food and got to meet a lot of her and her room mates friends. Her room mate's mother and male friend came down so we were able to meet them and they are so nice. Our whole family was there except for my oldest grandson, who is in New Orleans for fall break. My oldest son and his wife left this morning for Florida. My thoughts and prayers go out to all affected by Matthew. It was a very destructive storm with loss of life and property. I am watching the airlifts in Pinetops, North Carolina on TV and my heart goes out to all those people. 

This is an easy card today made with a sheet of Memory Box paper, a die from Poppy Stamps and a few sequins. The paper is several years old. I am trying to use up my stash but I have gotten some new dies. Be kind to one another.

  6. Hello my friend!! I'm back from vacation catching up on all of your beautiful projects I've missed while I've been gone!! I wanted to leave a comment on each one but blogger has decided I'm a spammer and I have to go through the click on "not a robot" button and the picture captcha. Ugh. So I'm sorry I can't comment on each project but they are all amazing!! I especially love the fall card with the adorable squirrel and the pretty leaves!! This is beautiful!! The papers are awesome!! I'm glad you had a wonderful time at your granddaughter's house!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)
