So Grateful

I hope you had a great day!  The boys are still in Papa and Grannie heaven!  They are having so much fun!  I got to pet my first groundhog today!  My mom has had the same groundhog ("Mommy") living in her backyard for 8 years.  She has managed to "tame" her and she comes when she's called, eats out of my mom's hand and lets my mom pet her.  I've always been a tad skittish of the furry little friend but today decided to give it a whirl and pet her!  She is very soft.  She is so sweet too!  I will try and get some pictures of her uploaded for tomorrow!

This is a card we'll be doing at my upcoming workshop.  I LOVE the Wonderfall stamp set (which coordinates perfectly with this Autumn Accents Die) but decided to cut the leaves and texturize them instead!  I really love the new Orchard Harvest DSP from the Holiday Catalogue!  It's super fun and has some fantastic colours in it!

This card is a sort of case from the most recent SU Demonstrator Magazine.  I altered it slightly to make it a bit easier for people at the workshop to make!

    I made this card for our 42 anniversary for my husband. Autumn is my favorite time of the year, that is why I chose Sept for my wedding 42 yrs ago. Thank you for a beautiful Idea.
