It wouldn't be Halloween without posting some cards.
So let's get after it!

Well, that wraps it up until next year.
Don't blink!
It'll be here before we know it!

Being born on Halloween is what I'm talkin' about!

Happy birthday, Laura.

I've been waiting to post some of these cards.
The time has now come to share!

First up is a card sent to a friend
that's going through some rough patches.
She recently told me that her ancestors
used to have one of these photo booths.
Fitting, right?
Hoping this brightens Patty's world.

Another (very late - but not forgotten)
thank you card to very dear friends.

I am still thanking people
for their over-the-top generosity for giving to my son.
People that have never met him.
People that I've never met.
Vicki is the best of the best with a heart of gold (and then some!)

Somebody saw the above card on the kitchen island
and asked me to use the same image on a card for his wife.
Same, but with a completely different look.

He also saw this image on another card
and asked me to create a card for his mom.
You've already seen this image on an anniversary
card for our friends.
Always amazes me just how different an image looks
just by changing up everything that adorns the card.

Never too late (especially in Texas)
for a October birthday picnic.
Happy birthday, Krista!

How about another birthday card?
Bill celebrated a couple of days ago.

Well, if you can't take her to Paris,
then give her a little Paris for your 31st wedding anniversary.
Keep on honeymooning, James and Carey!

That's all for now, folks.
Stay tuned for more cards!

Paul and Carol are the best!!!!!
Today they celebrate their wedding anniversary.

I remember them telling the story of their engagement.
He mentioned marriage.
She immediately dug in her purse for her calendar.
After a quick look,
she said "Well, I'm available on the 19th!"

So, October 19 was the wedding date.
And today they celebrate.

How's this for an October anniversary card?

Happy anniversary, friends.
Wish we could be there to break bread together.

Today Yesi becomes a teenager.
Wow - 13.

She's finally grown into these boots
and will soon be ready for high heels.

Happy birthday, sweet girl!

… if her birthday card was going to be
gifted on her birthday or not.

So I am posting the day after.

Happy birthday, Penny!

Poor Julie.
Yesterday was a knee replacement.

Like I said … TIMING.
Today she celebrates a birthday.
Probably not the way she wants to spend her day.

At least she'll get some extra attention, right? 
Get back on your feet real soon
happy birthday!
