Where has the time gone?

Wow - I can't believe that it's been about a week since I last posted. Honestly, where has the time gone. I've been so busy getting the kids ready to go back to school and then trying to get myself back onto some kind of routine that I haven't had any time to create. I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things this week.

Here's another Halloween card for you. I created it from the new stamp set from CTMH called "Spellbound". I don't know if you can really tell from the picture but I didn't tack down the branches on the tree. What a cool effect it is. It looks like the tree is jumping right off the card.

Thanks for looking! Enjoy the day.

Happy Smiles and Spooky Smiles

Hi everyone!

My children started school today. I know most parents say that they're happy when their kids return to school. I'm not one of them. I truly feel lost and lonley without them today. This happens to me every year and within a couple of days, we're all back into a routine and I start feeling better. I still miss them but not like that first day back to school.

My card today celebrates Halloween. I can honestly say that I don't like Halloween but I do love pumpkins. I used the CTMH stamp set called "spooky smiles". I actually bought this set because I love what they did with it in the new catalog. All products are from CTMH. You can't really tell from the photo but I did paper pierce the right side of the strip of garden green.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
