IMG_6970Love this card too!  It is from my friend, Debra Tack, who lives in Clarkston, WA.  Debra is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator that I met at convention in 2008 for about 15 minutes!  We happen to sit at the same table at lunch and started talking because I saw a picture of her cat, Mr. Charlie.  We have been sending cards back and forth ever since.  My friendships are certainly the very best part of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator!!!  She always sends great cards and, of course there is usually a cat involved.  She has two ~ Jake & Blue!

May luck be Yours on Halloween

Love getting cards in my mail box and I have a new one to show you.  This one is from a friend in Grafton ~ Sally Schwaner ~ a very crafty lady who works at NASA.  She is a librarian ~ sorry Sally ~ I don't know your official title!  Her card is the spookiest that I have received (and I am a bit concerned about the black cat)!

Who remembers Build-A-Bear from 2009?  Isn't she a darling witch?  Leave me a memory and I will choose a participant to win this month's Paper Pumpkin box of winter goodies!  Or, leave me a picture ~ I found this witch way back in my files..............
