Hello Paper Crafters. It's been a while and it's good to be back. Let me begin by asking for you prayers for a local student of mine who had to be rushed for emergency open heart surgery over the weekend. Her name is Pat. Thanks so much for your prayers.
I had a wonderful vacation visiting with family for the past week in GA. But it's time to get back in the swing of things. So I'm spending the day catching up on laundry, grocery shopping, trying to figure out what I need to create next, and uploading photo's to gallery's. I'm happy to report the cat survived while we were gone. We had a neighbor come over and give him fresh water while we were gone. My bird feeders were empty though, so the first thing I did was give them fresh water and refill my feeders. Shortly after doing so my Cardnal showed up. Week before last I had a pair of Grackles. It was fun to see a new species come around. But they didn't seen too interested in the bird feeders, and I haven't seen them since.
It's finally cooling down here in TX and it looks like the high for the next couple of days is 78-79. So I thought it would be fitting to post a fall card. I used "Autumn Fun" by Mark's Finest Papers. I have to tell you shortly after we left to go out of town I received an email announcing that Mark's Finest Papers was under new ownership. I was so surprised. I would link you to the set, but it's not up in the store at this time. The new ownership pulled down almost all the stamp sets and looks like they are finally adding some back on now. So honestly, I'm not sure if this one is going to make the cut or not. But the word is that they are going to be adding tons of new images, and it looks like it has already started.
Mark's Finest Papers has a HUGE Pre-Inventory sale going on right now as well. In addition to the advertised sale (25% off select items, no coupon needed) on their home page, you can save more (additional 15% off everything, including sale items using HEIN15 promo code). You want find the promo code on the home page, it was for email subscribers. A good reason to sign up for their email newsletters, because you never know what other sales them may have coming up as they fade out old images, making room for new ones.
