An update, a puppy and a card.

Wow what an amazing week!  Thank you all for your support throughout much of last week leading up to release day.  It is always a pleasure putting together stamp sets for your enjoyment.

I decided to take a little break after my posts only to find out my little one came down with the flu.  She is on the mend now but of course those fevers can be very concerning at the best of times.

For those of you who chatted with me in the Papertrey forums on release night I promised a photo of our puppy so here he is....


















He is such a snuggler!  Puppy comes home around the first week of December.  We can hardly wait to have him--although some MAJOR changes ahead especially since the holidays are around the corner (no presents under the tree until Christmas day, all decorations need to go higher on the tree, secure the tree, etc).  We have had the opportunity to visit him two times so far and may get to see him again in the next week.  I can't believe how much he has grown since he was 3 weeks old.
















Now onto paper craft business...

Around this time of year I put together what I call "variety" packs for teachers, coaches and church leaders etc.  I like to create a bunch of cards and give them away as gifts.

Here is one of the cards I created for a gift pack.  I just adore this tree that Heather Nichols created.  There truly are endless opportunities for design.

Have a super day!

Great idea to make assorted card sets for seasonal gifts! The mom card is so pretty. How many sets do you make up? Do you do extras for just in case? AND SWEEET puppy. Hope your girl is 100% soon and that is the end of cold&flu season for her! -tania

SO cute! Thanks for sharing the pics of the puppy. (And, hide the dirty socks! :) )
Oh -- the card is really cute, too. Great idea to put those flowers on the tree. Love it!
