My image this week is from Jeni of D'Amour Allure and is called Christmas Puppy with stocking and you can find it here. This is such a darling image and so easy to color. I just used some chalks on the puppy and my pencils on the stocking. I embossed my card stock with the snowflake cuddlebug folder. I stitched all the panels and mounted these snowflakes from my stash to round out the card. Thanks for stopping by today.

Thought I would share with you this incredible piece of Halloween decorating with you.
OK, so every year I have gone to Halloween Horror Nights with my Son. In 2008 they had what they called the "Evil Pumpkin Pathway". I have not been able to get this image out of my mind!This is just what it looked like in the trees, but there were pumpkins on the ground as well. You would not believe how unbelievably beautiful this was at night. My goal is to someday have enough pumpkins to recreate this in my back yard. It was so enchanting!
