October

noun  Oc·to·ber  \äk-ˈtō-bər\
1. the 10th month of the Gregorian calendar
 
Celebrating October is one of my favorite things. I look forward to each October with glittering eyes and a heart of warmth. I look up with great gladness at falling leaves, I look to the air for the last dragonflies in flight and I look inside my heart to find it happy and full of peace. 
 
Creating during these last few months takes on a magical quality for me, as I look for serendipity all around. Today I am very lucky to be a part of a very cool blog hop with Glue Dots who is partnering with Cardmaker Magazine! 
 
I created a super cute Halloween inspired card perfect for sharing with a favorite person! The best part of this card is that it was created using MINI GLUE DOTS® and CRAFT GLUE DOTS®, they are perfect for adding layers, die cuts, adhering thin designs and a flawless look.
 
Here are some of the inner workings of the card and how I added the layers. You'll see

If you'd like to know where those cute ghosts came from, you can find them here: Pretty Cute Stamps: My Boo Digital Stamps. The gate and card base can be found at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.

Sweet Wishes this Thursday with Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons!

The world is in dire need of kindness. 

I mean it.

One of the easiest ways you can do this is a card, a simple card popped into the mail. It's a lost art of kindness, do you remember how felt to get something other than a bill in the mail? I think it's so important to offer small kindness whenever you can in this life, it's not always easy, but try, always try.

I am sharing this card with you today, it's a "sweet wishes" card. It can be an all encompassing general card for many occasions

It has a few PPPR files thrown in there for good measure!

You'll find A2 Card Bases 2 Cutting FilesPhoto Frames 1 Cutting FilesHeart Balloon Cutting Files and Iced Coffee Cutting Files.

PPPR BLOG POST 9-15, SHANNON M.

Thanks for letting me share with you today!
