Get Well

I am posting a special Get well card today for a dear lady at my church who had an encounter with a dog and needed 100 stitches to her face!!!  OH MY!  when I had brain surgery, I only needed 80 staples to hold my head back together so I can't imagine 100 stitches.  She's elderly, but in excellent shape and good spirits.  All your good thoughts and prayers are appreciated.

Cute girl

Love these fun girl images from Notturno Digi Art stamps on Etsy.  The store has the cutest girl images and some delightful animal stamps as well.  I just love the big eye girls myself.  Totally my favorite.

Today the school is out, but the staff like me are working.  (lol, SIGH)  Teacher's are meeting with parents, but I am not a teacher (but a special needs paraprofessional).  At any rate, I have to be there too, mostly doing misc  nothing work, HA!

Is it Fall yet?

Is it fall yet?  Here's the perfect card for Fall time, using some pressed leaves.  We had a couple of days this week when it wasn't in the 90s, does that count as fall?  I guess in central Texas it does LOL!  but seriously, by Friday we had dropped down to the 40s!

Thank You

Sharing a lovely Anna Griffin Thank you card that I made using a kit she sells. I also added some great lace to it.  I am so excited with thoughts of going back to Turkiye this summer.  I hope to see Cappadocia and the land of the Hittites as well.

Have a wonderful weekend.  Many Blessings to all of you.

Here's a hilarious card using a fun image from Taylored Expressions Grumplings.  I think I have had a number of days recently that have been pretty tough so I haven't exactly been my best.  Though during school hours I just put on a smile and act happy to the kids.  Then the poor hubby when he gets home, I am gloomy or sad.

Hopefully things will be changing real soon.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.  HUGS!

Cute Ghost

Here's a great Halloween card using a wonderful Kit from SEI.  That ghost comes from some gorgeous paper with shimmery ghost pattern.  I just love it.  Their card kits always have the best stuff included and way more goodies than the instructions call for so you can change the designs if you desire.

Have a wonderful weekend.  I am so ready for that!

I love you so much

Here's a delightful stamp from Your Next Stamp.  I just love this cute animal image with a matching saying, "I love you so much, I could squish you."  TOO cute.    How can you resist this?  I had to pick this image up on one of my last on line shopping trips a while back.  (lol, online shopping trips, ha!)

Hope you all have a great week.  I can't believe we are already in Week 8 of school. Changes are brewing, I would really appreciate prayers.  God knows why they are needed for me right now, just send love and thoughts :)

For you Friend

Here's another wonderful Anna Griffin Friend theme card. I just love her wonderful kits for those quick and easy cards that you need in a hurry.  They turn out so lovely and if you add some of your own embellishments, like the little red buttons here, it really gives it a personal touch.

Cheers, Holley

Simple Fall Moments

Sharing this lovely leaf card that I made using some beautiful pressed leaves from a fellow church member.  I wish I could say that it felt like Fall here but we are still touting mid to upper 90s with 100 degree "feels like" humidity!  UGH!

Perhaps mother nature has not gotten the memo that it is Fall time.

Its the candy monster

OK, I am the candy monster.  But, lately I have been doing really good at staying away from most all forms of candy.  Most forms of concentrated sugar in fact.  That's not easy for me.  I do love me some sugar.  Not having it is tough.  I told the DH to skip the candy for Halloween (for me of course, not himself or the trick or treaters).

Hope you all are avoiding the candy monster!
