Happy November!

Wow, how can it be November first already?  Time flies!  It seems like just yesterday that Tammy asked me to be part of a new challenge blog called Color Throwdown!  I have had so much fun with the girls on the team, as well as the girls on the ColourQ and Paper Players teams. But life brings changes, and I feel the need to step down from my DT commitments for a while.  I will still be stamping, blogging and participating in the challenges, but in a more casual frame of mind!!  I haven’t had time to comment and visit my favorite blogs, and that makes me sad, so hopefully this will give me a bit more time.  And the worst part is that I started stamping because I love sending out cards, and I have fallen behind on that as well!  I so need to catch up!

That being said, today I am sharing a couple goodies I received recently from my wonderful stamping friends!  The first is a cute Halloween card from Beth:


I just love that punched drippy goo!!!

And a pretty little goodie from Kathy:


which snazzily opens up to reveal a little hand sanitizer:


Ack!  I LOVE that little guy peeking out from his little hiding place!!!  Thanks, girls, for both!!! 

And I can’t pass up sharing my little granddaughter’s first Halloween costume:


Have a great Monday!

I don't know how you managed to keep your commitments with so many DT but you did it quite well!! Hopefully this frees up some quality family and stamping time for you :)

Hey there sweetie - I missed you as I added the cards to the colourQ post last night! [sigh] I know you'll enjoy the time off with that precious baby! She'll thrive with your undivided attention and you'll be happier too, not having that nagging feeling that something's going undone - lol! You are such a special lady, LeAnne - I LURVE YOU!!!

Sylvia said...

Wow, LeAnne! When you bow out, you do it big time! I understand your need for some me time. I miss you already with all that talk about your cards not seeming right when in fact they are so wonderful. I will be back to see your cards often. Your link is on my blog under Sylvia's favorites!, cause you are one of my favorites. Hugs to you!

Colleen Dietrich said...

I can certainly understand your need for "me" time. That's a lot of DT's to be on at once. I hope you find joy in your card-making once again, I mean true joy. THe kind that made you want to send out all those cards! God Bless you and your family, LeAnne.
