Today's featured paper pack is Pathfinding.  This one's perfect for Autumn, of course, but can be used in so many other ways as well.  Check out this card (part of this month's card class so you're getting a sneak peek!).

I used two stamp sets here: Lifetime of Happiness and Distressed Backgrounds.  It's a very simple card, isn't it?!  I just love that little bit of glacier blue in among all the normal fall colors.

Here's another little card using the same paper and stamps.

This one has one of our little printed cork circles on it (from the Pathfinding Assortment).  Just the right touch!

Here's a close up of the patterns that come in this collection.

Like I said, quite versatile :)

Finally, here's the PDQ workshop available for this paper pack!

Autumn is my favorite time of year so it's no surprise that I'm in love with this set!

Little dog lost...and found.

I hadn't posted this before now because I like to keep my blog upbeat but for the last five days, things at our house have been pretty bleak.  Our little dog Bailey got out of the fence late Saturday night and we couldn't find him.  All sorts of bad thoughts went through my head - the worst being that he would be hit by a car.  Five long days passed as we searched the streets, put out FB posts, checked with shelters and wondered what else we could do.  Well, today turned completely around when a lady called us saying that she thought Bailey was at the preschool where she works.  We jumped in our car and sped our way there...and it was our little guy!  He's a little bit worse for the wear as he's lost weight and had a cut on his paw that required stitches (bye bye $250) but he's home where he belongs.  We are so happy to have him back with us and now that the stress is gone, we can laugh at his attempts to walk with a bandaged paw.  Welcome home, pup!

Smiles, Caron

Ah September!

September is here and with it comes the promise of a nip in the air, the colors of Autumn and all that I love about the season. Sure, I don't get that here in FL but I had it growing up and just the memories alone are enough to make me happy.  This is National Stamping Month and Close To My Heart has a wonderful special to celebrate that and the company's 30th anniversary.  Any time during this month, place an order of $30 or more and you will receive this special stamp set absolutely free!  Thirty little images just right for making backgrounds, highlighting a sentiment, personalizing an envelope or anything else you can think of!  Get crafting!
Smiles, Caron
