'Tis Near Halloween

Hi! I hope you are enjoying the fall colors!    I had fun creating with this darling Bugaboo image:


   I am doing pretty well with CAS cards- they are getting easier : )  This fun image makes the card go together quickly- in fact, I made 30 of these for an adult day care for clients with Dementia and Alzheimers. My Mom has dementia, and I have to say, such centers are such a blessing when you do not want to put your loved one into a 'facility'.

  For this 2nd card, I cut our the ghosts on my Silhouette and just added a sentiment from Create with TLC.


Challenges:
Catch the Bug- Color Challenge - 1st card

My Mom is still here with me, and we have been having a great time with the beautiful color changes here:



Thanks for stopping by!
Shelly

I love walking around among all the pretty tress! TFS!! HUGS

CAS.... my nemesis too. And the struggle is real. But you've done a great job here, Shelly. The pumpkins are too cute.

Enjoyed these cute Halloween cards, and how sweet of you to make these for the center. I can well imagine what a blessing it is, to know that you have a safe & caring place to look after your Mom when you can't be there all day. It's not the greatest thing when you have to 'place a loved one' somewhere. Our family went through that. It's a blessing she can still be with you, and I loved seeing her enjoy the lovely fall changes. The pictures were beautiful. TFS & Have a good week.

Fabulous Halloween card for a great cause, Shelly!

I love the photos of your mom with those awesome autumn trees in the background.

Shelley yes you were doing marvelous with the CAS cards but then again you are the queen of ATC !! Very festive and fun cards but I confessed your mom in these beautiful photos with her smile and the lovely changing leaves really steals the show !! ❤️

So nice you could have your mother with you. Mine lives 14 hours away, in Atlanta, GA and I'm up here in Canadaa. I see my mom every four to five years.

Your cards are lovely. I love the sentiment stamp--so cute. CAS cards are indeed difficult. You did a terrific job on them.

Anne Temple said...

Both of your Halloween cards are adorable. Great photos of your mom and the changing leaves too.
