Where did the time go? (Part Deux)

Wow - almost October already, and my crafty/scrappy efforts have been nil for the last few months. Lots of exciting goings on in my life though - new kitty Ace, business growing by leaps and bounds, daughter started her 3rd year of medical school, son a high school sophomore and playing varsity football.

I did finally make some time for Halloween cards for my little grand-nieces and -nephews though, so here are a couple of shots of those cards. I saw a display at my LSS with Queen & Company supplies, and derived these cards from one of those designs. They were fun to make, and my new asssistant Ace was busily trying to "help". I will probably be finding embellishments under furniture and rugs for the next couple of months!

Ace was a barn cat that would not let anyone pet her. When my son saw her, he knew she was the one he wanted, so he spent over an hour luring her to him. Once we got her home, it was as if she had been born here. She has made herself quite at home.

Here is another picture of her greeting her new "neighbor" the squirrel. I have a pecan tree in my backyard, and this squirrel spends all day, every day, carrying pecans across the deck to his secret stash. Ace just happened to be at the window looking out as he crossed the deck one time, and I just happened to have my camera handy.

Here's another one of the little princess!
