HELLO, HELLO!!!

Happy Friday evening, friends and family!

I did get a little detained with some minor matters, but I'm so glad to be here.  For one, I was re-doing the card my friend's grandson destroyed and, second, I had to make 2 more "Trick  and Treat" Haunted House Totes  to give to the hosts/hostess' of a couple of Halloween parties the DH and I are invited to this weekend.  There was one important issue and without going into any detail, my friend's house was subject to a fire the other day.  There was enough damage that she had to move out, so if you could just say a little prayer for her that her insurance company finds her a temporary "permanent" apartment soon, I'd appreciate it.

So, like I said, I did remake the card; but, unfortunately, the stamp on the front tag didn't come out very well this time and I'm going to have to take it off and re-do it.  I don't want to just throw anything at you  but after having to remake this card a second time, I just didn't feel like doing anything else all over again just yet.  So here's what the tag reads:  "Follow your dreams, for they hold endless possibilities".  I think I'll gold emboss the sentiment on the next one, I think that would look nice.  Here's the card:



Here's a peek at the bottom open page:


Well, I'm working on completing another project right now.  So, I'll be back...!!!

I'll keep your friend and her family in my thoughts and prayers. I can't even imagine dealing with a house fire :-( I pray everything works out for them, I'm sure they are dealing with enough already :-(

Still need to get my butt in my craftroom. Hopefully this weekend. I've been such a slacker. lol!
