Welcome to October

Only three more months of 2023. How can that be? This is such a beautiful time of year and my favorite season. I have been missing this week with bronchitis. The cough is getting better now but it really laid me low the first week. My poor, comprised lungs have a hard time dealing with this and it completely saps my energy. So, a lost week for me.

I know this card is strange but it fits right in with my family. Tomorrow is my son's birthday and he lives on a lake with lots of turtles. You see one every time you walk out on the dock. I had to make this card for him! This is KaiserCraft paper and a Sunny Studio sentiment. I know he will love it. I made it a few months ago after seeing Patty Dolan make it on YouTube.

Never drink with a ghost. They can't handle their boos.

Be kind to one another.

Oh Brenda, this is going to be a hit with your son I'm sure! I love this technique of framing an image and the turtle looks perfect! I hope you feel better soon and get rid of that cruddy bronchitis. That's the pits! As for Halloween, I'm only there for the boos anyway so bring on the ghosts! (j/k - I can't handle the boos anymore) LOL Happy October!

Hi Brenda,
so sorry to hear you are poorly.
I do hope you are feeling better soon.
Love your Son's card and the wonderful design.
The colours are so pretty and perfect for the Turtle image.
What a very lucky Man to live near those fab creatures and a lovely lake.
Lots of crafty love and gentle hugs from my house to yours. Jenny L.

Love how you framed in the turtle design. Glad you are on the mend. This is a great time to be outside with the cooler days.

Nothing about your card is strange at all! I love it and I love turtles too! Great way to showcase this little turtle. Both inside and out it's wonderful.

Sorry to hear you’ve been poorly, hope you’re feeling a lot better. I’ve seen this “fractured “card technique recently, (I don’t really like the name), but I love your turtle card. How amazing to be able to see them in the wild, such gorgeous creatures. Take care Xxx

This is not a strange card Brenda! I love the sea turtle you used on it! And here I thought I was up on my game for once making these faux shutter cards. LOL I love yours and I love the colors you used. But I really love that turtle the most! I hope you are feeling much better now!!! Hugs, Brenda
