This week was filled with lots of sorrow and a few bright spots. We are still trying to hold those bright spots to us and breath around the sorrow. Remember to tell the people you love that you love them. Tomorrow may not come so make today count.

I told you I love Halloween and here is another card (and envelope) to prove it. I wish you could see how much this card glitters and shines…it’s magical.

This week was horses for me and the last Burn Notice for Tam. Nafia and I finished our Level 2 Obedience class. And that was pretty much it for our week.
I used Studio 112, Unity’s Easier With You by My Side, and Memento Tuxedo Black and Londen Fog ink.

Another easy week with few pictures. We made a quick trip to Nashville and spent some time with some great friends. Besides that, we just hung out with the dogs.
This week I used Simon Says Stamp’s “Pillow Talk,” Kelly Purkey’s “Oliver,” Tim Holtz “Phone Blueprint” and Memento’s “Rich Cocoa” ink.

We just started Level 2 Obedience classes with Nafia. Hope it goes well, most of the time I think she is smarter than me already. She is also getting ready for Halloween! She likes to get an early start. We had a week of beautiful skies and some great kayaking at Lake Lurleen. Just a good week.

Yes! Vibram Five Finger toe shoes!!! Love these shoes! I have 3 pairs of these. Took a friend of ours and Logan to buy them some toe shoes. We really didn’t do much this week, oh, Logan moved home this week so it was a happy week for me. However, I am sad for him, but it’s just till he finishes college.
I used Technique Tuesday’s “This One by Ali Edwards,” Fiskars’ “Outdoor Fun,” Lawn Fawn’s “Smitty’s ABCs” and “Jessie’s ABCs,” Stampendous’ “Bee Critter,” “Grasshopper Critter,” and “Turtle Critter,” studio g stamps and Tombow markers.

Logan went with his girlfriend and her family to Gatlinburg, TN. They seemed to have a great time. We live down the road from some coal mines and this was the highest we have seen the coal piled in 16 years. Our Four O’clock flowers tried to take over our front porch, they were taller than me, but they were beautiful. The worst this week, we lost our Artemis. She is very, very missed.

Logan’s birthday week! An awesome week just because of that. Everything else this week was just random little things! I used Hero Arts’ “Live it Up” and Paper Smooches’ “Super.” I love the “Super” stamp…it’s just so super! (Yes, I went there :) )

Logan had a wreck this week, a really, really bad wreck. We are so blessed that he survived and is home with us. I have never been as scared as I was while waiting at the hospital. It could have been so much worse. No matter how scary a week it was, it was a wonderful one because we still have him.

I thought I would try a Lawnscaping Challenge this week. I love Lawn Fawn stamps and I love Simon Says Stamp (they’re sponsoring the challenge) so I thought why not give it a try. I’m not sure how much I like my card, maybe because I’m trying some new techniques, but it does look a lot better in person. Stop by Lawnscaping Challenges and join in the fun.
I used Lawn Fawn’s “Summertime Charm,” Doodlebug Design inc stamps, Simon Says Stamp’s “Moroccan Stencil,” Distress Inks in “broken china,” “tumbled glass,” and “peeled paint.” I also used Gelly Roll glaze and Clear Star pens.

We found Scarlet Ninjini this week! Don’t ask. Tam and I went to Red Lobster, mainly so I could have their yummy bisciuts. We also took Nafia kayaking for the first time this weekend. She did so much better than we though she would. She even seemed to like swimming in her new lifejacket. This week I used “Loopy Rings” by Memory Box and “The Great Outdoors” stamp by TPC Studio.
