Hi Everyone...I finally had a moment to make a card for the challenge.  I however didn't want to make a Halloween card.  So, I hope this one is okay.

Hello everyone, Wanted to say Congratulations to Cathy for winning the challenge and for Carla for being our next GDT.

My brother and his wife have been up from Austin Texas and I have not seen them in a while so I have been kinda busy.

I see we have some great cards entered in the new challenge.

Have a wonderful day everyone.

Hey thanks for sharing that Donna what a great organization...

Ladies we have some really cute Halloween cards already way to go !

Not much going on here I am just about ready to head out to work..have a nice Sunday everyone.

Comment by Donna Vallee on October 15, 2011 at 4:38pm

Hi All!  I just want to share this...

This is an awesome organization that sends greeting cards out to seriously ill people.  It is near and dear to my heart.  Since I started creating greeting cards years ago and the focus of my card making was for my oldest sister. In the last 12 years of her life things were terrible for her.  I lost her to pancreatic cancer in March of this year.  Then my focus turned to my daughter-in-law's 24 year old sister who was battling colon cancer.  We lost her in August.  
> I know how much my cards meant to them and so I found this organization to join to give a little joy to others.
> I know most of the card makers are like me and have dozens of cards so I thought maybe it would be nice to let them know.
> Shareacard. org is now looking for holiday cards.

Congrats Cathy and Carla, your cards are so gorgeous.

Michelle, fabulous Halloween card, your coloring is beautiful.

Marie, have a fun weekend, next week, you will love Suzanne's classes and Suzanne. Tell Patricia from Paper Temptress I said hello :)

Just home from my parents farm.  The cows and bull needed their feet trimmer.  Let's just say today wasn't their favourite day plus I got the sh*tty end of the job, holding the tail out of the way.  Off for a both as I'm a tad smelly.  I had my image printed out for the next challenge but I've lost it have printed it out again and hopefully I'll get it coloured tomoz,

H xx
