Advice from the Season Autumn

Today there is a new release of sorts from Catch the Bug called Jar Autumn and I used a sentiment from TLC, Create.  It just seems like we have skipped Autumn and gone straight to Winter with as cold as it has been, today we are to have a high of 26. YIKES! I had fun with this image because I love these colors.

Thankful for family, friends, food and spanx

Today starts a new challenge at Catch the Bug and the theme is Something Yummy.  I used the image JJC Thanksgiving and a sentiment from TLC, Create.  In less than two weeks in the US we will be having Thanksgiving and many will be having a turkey. I am looking forward to this since now that I am alone...I don't cook like I used to when my husband and kids were around.  This morning I woke up to the ground being covered in snow so the weather has changed to being COLD.

Party till you melt

I wanted to make a card for me that wasn't part of a DT requirement so I made a Christmas card.  I used an image from Bugaboo called Goofy Snowmen Set and a sentiment from TLC, Create.  Naturally if it's a goofy snowman...he has to have goofy eyes and a pom on his hat.  The background is embossed.  It's a fun CAS card.

Sorry about your Boo Boo

I have an uncle who had to have surgery so I made this card for him and he should receive it as he returns home from the hospital.  The image and sentiment is from Mo Manning called Boo Boo. I have a bunch of Mo's images and just had to color one up for this.
I haven't told anything personal in quite sometime so I am going to just vent for a second....I have a lot with lots of trees so hence lots of leaves.  All weekend long I have been trying to get outside and deal with my yard which I'm sure my neighbors are not happy with since working full time I have not done during the week. On Saturday after being out for 30 minutes it started to rain and then Sunday I was out for 45 minutes.  Today I rushed home and in the dark I had 30 minutes to have just a small pile before it started to rain, really.  These leaves are wet and I have mushrooms growing underneath.  Luckily I went to my Allergy appointment to find out that I don't have allergies just chronic sinusitis with a wonderful sinus infection since June so we are trying another antibiotic.  OK, thanks, at least I typed out my story and beat on my keys, lol.

Todays witches ride swiffers

Today starts a new Stella Says Sketch Challenge at Catch the Bug.  For my card, I used the image and sentiment of Stella Swiffer.  I love the sarcastic humor of Stella.  I added Glossy Accents to her glasses and the stars....and when I went to take my picture this is the first time I had this happen, but it was not quite dry and I smeared them when the card flopped when I was taking a photo.  ARGH!  Now I can imagine what Stella would say.
