Thoughtful Branches and the Great Pumpkin

Hello,
I bet you've been wondering what ever happened to me? I know, I have been among the missing. But not really. I did manage to keep up with my Facebook page, but the blog did take a back seat to all the going's on. So, what happened is, first of all, I had a workshop (expecting 20 peeps) and my largest class EVER of 15 peeps! All requiring planning and prep time. Secondly, my poor little munchkin, (my sweet little dog) had a small issue. To provide background, he developed a little cyst on his side about 2 years ago. We showed the vet who said not to worry about it, it wasn't bothering him and we shouldn't be concerned. Well, fast forward to Thursday 8/4, we noticed that it had gotten larger, appeared red and he didn't want mama to touch it. So, I planned to take him to the vet but then Friday morning, it looked a little better so we decided to watch it through the weekend and if necessary take him in on Monday.....well, Sunday, it was again large, mushy and red so definitely we were going to make a trip to the vet on Monday, in the meantime, I was going to hot pack it. Well, before I could get the hot pack on it, it popped on its own! (insert grimace!..YUK) Yes, I'm a nurse, so my nursing skills kicked in, and we soaked it, cleaned it, Peroxide it and soaked it some more. Needless to say, we didn't bother going to the vet and I spent the week warm packing it, and now, it's almost totally gone! And here I am, back to my regular routine!

Today, I want to share a card I made using the Thoughtful Branches stamp set bundle! I love the versatility of this set! I literally flipped the tree upside down and made it into a pumpkin! Isn't it adorable? I used Tangerine Tango ink on Tangerine Tango cardstock and for the stem I stamped it in Early Espresso and the leaves I did in Old Olive. I hope you like todays card and if you would like this bundle, be sure to visit my online store as this bundle won't be around long. It's only available until 8/31/16 or until supplies last, whichever comes first!
