I get so busy with our family making sure my son gets up for school and sending cards to my daughter at college.  Then there is the on going issues of my husband and his cancer in which we usually have a doctor appointment or an issue each week to deal with that I forget about rest of the world at times.  Today, I plan to send a fall card to an aunt that had her husband pass away about a year ago, but just a reminder that we are still thinking of her.  Then my Mother shared some news about things that are happening with my aunt and her family on my other side so I made a card to send to her to let her know I was thinking of her. That is my plan for today to think of others.
My second card is using a stamp from Torico at Birdie Brown with the sentiment from TLC, Create.  I added glitter to the beard and liquid applique to the hat.  I made a stocking that contains Stickles and liquid pearls.
My next card is using this months freebie image from Bugaboo and a sentiment that is from last years TLC, Create Christmas Club.  Paulette will be starting another wonderful Christmas Club on November 10th for 13 days and you can get more information at TLC, Create.
My final card is using a digital image from TLC, Create along with a sentiment that can be found here.
