More Halloween samples

For someone who is not a great big Halloween fan I seem to have created several cards this year for those of you who are. This is the second Halloween card we made during my Holiday card stamp a stack last month. I love the film strip design on this card. I use it often. The card is on a black base with Dusty Durango layered on top and made to look stitched, the "film strip" is made using the spiral punch down both sides. The other punches used are the 1 1/4 square punch and the 1 1/4 circle punch. The stamp set is a great one for this holiday "Batty for You" (p. 23 item # 116576). Order it soon and it will arrive in time to make cute treats for your kids and grand kids this fall season. Call, email, or you can place an online order at my demo website here. I pray yall finish out the week well, be kind one to another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another just as God has forgiven you. Be blessed and be a blessing. Love cindy

I'm still Here

Lately, it seems to be my post all start with "it's been a while". Life just has a way of getting in the way of my plans! In the last few weeks, we have had a major flood at my mother's house, a minor water problem at my house that required all my beautiful bamboo flooring to be removed, we have inherited a house guest with baby (since first week in August), and moved our daughter Jennifer from her rental house into my mom's house. Needless to say, it has been wild, busy, somewhat emotional ( Tommy and I laid that floor, every board, ourselves. It was our 25th wedding anniversary present to each other) and draining. I have eeked out a little stamping time for my stamp a stack and hostess club, but am very far behind on projects I need to plan and want to try myself. I am reminded of a song Ernie Hauss sings "What a difference a day makes..." This is true!! I hope and pray your coming days are productive and enjoyable. There is a proverb in Scripture that says, "The rain falls on the just and the unjust" So our job is to deal, keep going, pull up your big girl panties and move on! Continue to bless others and you will be continually blessed!
This Birthday card I want to share with you is from a recent stamp a stack. It is a great card I think, very simple, but really pretty. It is stamped on So Saffron with versa mark then colored with Stampin' Pastels. The stamp set is Upsy Daisy. Quick and easy card!
