A few "good apples"...for sure...

I am SO thankful for the people in my life and excited to bring you another post from Avocado Arts today, featuring a few good apples ;)

{{{Please scroll down for my Sparkle Creations preview post- thank you!!!}}

Hey, again, everyone!

Today is day 3 of some serious rain and I wish I could blow it all to my friends in Austin who really need it!   Speaking of friends, I have some really good ones.   As life's little trials and tribulations rear themselves around a corner every now and then, I am constantly reminded of the GOODNESS of people.  Of the COMPASSION of people...and of the strong resolve of the human spirit and how beautiful a few 'good apples' can be :)

Speaking of which, I have a card today featuring the September kit, "Thankful for You":

I am loving the All Spice paper pack from My Mind's Eye- it is too adorable and really great for Fall!  I used it for my card today along with a little Distress Ink in Antique Linen and created it according to the Deconstructed Sketch today, DS18:

I love the sentiment I used from the "Thankful for You" kit, "thankful for you, and ALL you do."  You guys know who you are ;)

Thanks for letting me share some more Avocado Arts with you today!    You can check out more on the Avocado Arts BLOG as I'll be making a little appearance over there too ;)  I am having a blast as the September Guest Designer and really love these quality clear stamps.  If you guys don't yet have any Avocado Arts stamps in your craft collections, what are you waiting for?   They have an awesome kit program but the commitment is totally up to you!   Thanks for stopping by and Happy Fall y'all....I think it's here, at least until next week when we're back in the 70's again ;)

this post is soooo true. Why spend time dwelling on those who bring us down when we can look around and see all those people around us with open arms and loving hearts. and I don't have any of their stamps yet nor this paper pack- for shame andrea- get shopping! xoxo
