A Thankful Heart


     I have much to be thankful for, but honestly the past month has been difficult. My youngest (almost 2 years old) goes in early Wed. morning for a pretty extensive dental surgery and will be going under general anstesia. I am scared, but I know he is in capable hands, and all will be fine when it is over. But, still a Mother's heart is so full of worry when it comes to our little ones, and worry has pretty much consumed my life for the past month. Anyways, crafting time has been a GREAT help these past few weeks, and I am very thankful that I have a hobby that can be so theraputic. 

   Ok, now onto my card!!   I have a Fall Inspired card to show you today using some of my favorite stamps from Wplus9, "Pretty Patches: Pumpkin".  I stamped the pumpkins using SU Pumpkin Pie ink, cut them out (I don't have the matching dies), and built a nice pile o'pumpkins. My frame is from the PTI die set "Fabulous Frames". The patterned paper is from Echo Park. I also want to show you a picture of my pretty Fall Mums in the front of my house. Fall makes me happy!


Thank you for letting me share all of this with you today, and I rarely ask this, but if you can, please say a small prayer for Connor Wednesday morning. Hugs.

Beautiful fall card! Love the textures and stitching details. I totally understand your son had the general anesthesia for dental surgery when he was 3-4 years old. It was scary, but please know that Connor will be OK under the expert professional care! Hang in there! PS: my son has a perfect (and healthy) smile :)
