Boo!!!!!!! its the Blog Hop....

Happy Monday it is BBTB2 time, I am excited to participate in this end of the month blog-hop especially because this is the first one I have done since my dad's death.  I miss him a lot but I am sure you all know that.  Thanks so much for continuing on with me during these unexpected things that have happened in my life.  Some of the things that make me very happy in my life R simple things like Fall weather, warm sweaters, Yummy Apple pie, watching my hubby get excited about Football season, and Halloween.  I know I am a bit early for this type of card, but heck it is never too early for your heart to smile, so I chose to make my ice-cream pumpkin cone Halloweenish.  I was also excited to see that my Dear friend Regina Easter made some awesome line paper to add to her digital stamps she sells at The Cutting Cafe.  I added this line paper to my card, but before I did I recruited my family in the fun by asking them words that came to mind when they thought of Fall.....If you click on my picture you can tell a bit better that we came up with words like, Black cat, Candy Corn, Pumpkins, Witches, Etc and added them in Microsoft to the lined paper...Fun stuff.....Thanks for stopping by my little blog..it brings joy to my heart.  The blog candy below is up for grabs, all you have to do is leave me a comment and I will pick a winner using random.org Saturday July 31st.  Now Hop on over to Penny Shuberg's blog and see what she has created...Happy Crafting my Friends....
