Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge

Hello friends!  I have finally had a chance to participate in one of Papertrey Ink's challenges, so without further ado, here is my card for the October challenge found here:

This card uses the 2009 Bitty Dot Basics cut out with a hexagon die cut, with the sentiment from the Gratitude Journal set.  I don't often do clean and simple, but I have always admired those who do!  This design is based on this card by Teri Anderson, a PaperCrafts Magazine Go-To-Girl.  

Thanks for taking time to stop by today!  All comments are welcome!

Show and Tell...

Hello!  Today I would like to share a few pictures of my fur babies - you may remember that Heidi had an injury a few months ago, and this week, she received a clean bill of health!!  Look...

 isn't she a sweetheart?  If you look right between her ears, you can see her sister, Taffy, and Jake, her grumpy brother.  Here are a few pics of them too...

 Mr. Jake...

 and Miss Taffy on the right.

such bundles of love, I tell you!  They make our lives so much richer, between their antics and their cuddles, we enjoy a lot of love and laughter, some of the little things that give us joy!

Now for a few cards ~ October 1st was World Card Making Day, and I was able to squeeze in a few cards, in between working on my new craft room, two of which I will show you here:

 this was made using the Love Lives Here - Holiday stamp set, and
 this card uses the Believe stamp set, both are from Papertrey Ink.  I can't believe holiday season is almost upon us already!!  So many cute choices of stamp sets to use this year...how will I decide?  Oh well, that is one of those little things that makes life interesting!
