Musings from the Cemetery

Cold, cold, and colder were the only thoughts Todd and I had this past week. Each day we changed our walking time a few hours later
to see if the sun would help to warm the day. Alas not, it is finally coat, hat and gloves time. Winter is here and we will have to bundle up to go on our walks.

It is funny how much more I talk to Todd when it is cold and even ask him to remind me to wear my gloves. What a surprise it would be if he did. 

My musing today will be to introduce you to Todd, my little fur baby. Todd is a Jack Russell mix weighing in at 22 pounds. He is taller than a Russell, closer to the height of a Parsons but he has the feisty attitude of a Jack. His tail goes straight up, his chest puffs out, the hair on his back stands straight up and his bark becomes deep and menacing. He is in FULL Jack mode.

But he is my pound puppy. white with reddish brown spots and freckles all over. If he was a person, I see him as Huck Finn, long legged, barefoot, roaming the fields in search of trouble. And trouble he can be -- just let him get his freedom and he will be gone for as long as he can, sharing with the neighborhood, who is boss.

He loves his walks in the morning.

He also is not a loner. He can never be far from someone when in the house. If you move to another room, there better be a blanket or bed near, because he is going to join. Being alone is not for him.

Thank you for taking time to stop by.

Holiday Expression goes LIVE

A NEW Holiday Expression Idea Book went LIVE today, September 1st!! And it is FULL of Fall and Holiday FUN!!

Below you will find out how you can get FREE shipping on your FIRST Holiday Expression order, you must order through me.
There are FOUR great Stamps of the Month and we start with Sweet Treats. A great stamp for Halloween, Christmas, winter, and friendship.

Here are to cards I created using Sweet Treats!

I created a Halloween shaker card using our new Shaker thin cuts and Shaker Window Foam & Acetate (Z4310). I used one of the circle thin cuts to cut a small circle in the card base and used the larger circle and frame to create a see through shaker. I cut little bats on the Cricut and added the Shaker Sequins.
And don't forget to do the inside and envelope
Next I cut a large circle with the Shaker Thin Cut and added a Cricut cut leaf frame. The Warm Winter Wishes image was stamped on the inside and a piece of Ruby polka dot ribbon from my stash was added to the front.
