Putting pep in my step!

Well I have to tell you, though I am exhausted, I am starting Monday with a pep in my step!  I was announced as a Show Stopper at the Curtain Call this am for this card and I have these two cards (#1 & #2 showcased on the TAWS blog!  Woop!  So I think that encouragement will help me get through my day.  Thank you for thinking these cards are great! :) :) :)


And now I'd like to share another fall/Halloween card with you using that same Stamper Anonymous set that I used on Friday.  What I love about this card is the contrast of the DP in behind the pumpkin layer from Graphic 45.  Typically, this isn't my style of DP but I loved the blue in this, it really grabbed my attention.  Even using it makes me feel kind of daring!  I know...I live a dangerous life! ;)  I didn't plan it, but this totally works with this week's ColorQ, so I am joining that challenge and another entry for the City Crafters Challenge.


For today's Question of the Day I wanted to use CM's question because I liked it so much.  Her question is, "What is your dream job?"
Well, that is a hard one to answer CM, but I think I really enjoy crafting (go figure!) and maybe just being so good at it (not necessarily a job) that I get published a lot and people just want to give me free  product to try out.  That would be awesome!  I think not having to work full time would be the way to go. :)  What about you?

BTW- Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to all you wonderful Canadian's out there! :)

Oh and my dream job...Homemaker...I know its old fashioned, but if I could stay home and just care for my home and all that's in it I think I would be very happy. Of course I would be crafting too. That goes without saying.

Pep in your step, indeed, with those amazing, well-deserved showcases of your amazing creations! And this one is FABULOUS! Love what you've done with the pumpkin stamp and yes, the paper is perfect! I'm calling out, Winner, Winner on this one! Your dream job mirrors mine almost exactly! Full-time crafting (although I need a zillion more years practice!), being published, free products, maybe even becoming 'good enough" to teach a class now and again, and being able to stay home: dream+++ Of course, part of that dream also includes living in a bungalow, with my OWN craft room (well-stocked!!), a garage and yes...much, much, much closer to my family!! LOVE your site, Katie - it's like visiting a friend and having a chat!!
