Hope you are having a great week!  This "weather" - we've had high in the 90's and now for Friday is predicted down in the 60's! What to wear, huh!  Cleaned out my closet this week of spring and summer clothes - ready for the cold!  Bring on the sweaters!  LOVE THE FALL!

Here's the design for my October birthday cards.  Can't believe it's already October - WOW!  I made a resolution in January to make everyone in our church family a birthday card this year - and now we're down to the 10th month!  It's been GREAT  and - difficult - but I've been blessed by it and had to put on my creative thinking cap on a couple of times!  Turned in my card swaps for September... Maria picked a very creative design for this month's swap - a "Tent Topper" style of card - with a Fall or Halloween theme... more info soon!

Thanks for stopping by this week!  TGIF is tomorrow!  The Bobcats have an open date this Friday - it'll be a looooong Friday workday - Homecoming is next week though - that'll be fun!  Hug the ones you love!
