Raining, dreary, and a million leaves have fallen outside.
But I am warm and cozy inside doing what I love best,
creating with some of my newly released dies from Tutti Designs.

This is one of the 39 cards I made for the October release.
I love this release, so many pretty pretty dies, 13 in all.

This card uses the Flower Symphony Corner die #188
(I will add the link a bit later, do to a mix-up at the store)!

I just cut the die and simply paper pieced the flower....a pretty card and simple to mail!

An update on my grandson is that after 12 days in ICU, 
he was sent to a rehab facility
that my daughter was not happy with, 
as they had never treated someone so young
and it just felt more like a nursing home then anything else,
I think the youngest person there was in their 40's,
not a great place for a teenager to be to keep his spirits up

 He is being moved by ambulance today today from Indianapolis 
(that's in Indiana for all that aren't familiar)
to Grand Rapids Michigan to a place called
Mary Free Bed
which we have heard nothing but good things about.
It is a 4 1/2 hour ride for him, so please keep him in your prayers
for a safe and pain free travel.
He has a long road ahead of him, they feel where is at 6 months is where
he will be, with a 2 year recovery.
He has gained some feeling back in his legs, but still is unable
to sit up by himself or walk and a few other things.
We are hoping this facility will help him regain that and more!

Come back tomorrow to see my project
for the Sparkle N Sprinkle October release!

Prayers for Caiden, for safe travels today and continued recovery.

Your card is so pretty. The Flower die is so pretty and I love how you have layered it on the stitched circle die. Great sentiment too!

Darlene said...

Of course I will continue to keep Caiden in my daily prayers! And prayers for the rest of you too ... such a long, tiresome struggle ahead but I have faith he & you will get through it.
The cards you've been making with this latest Tutti release are AMAZING and I love the color and paper piecing design on this one! GREAT JOB and look forward to seeing more!

Looking out my window is just the same as you today ... Such a lovely card Diane and I love the inlaid technique ... I'm glad that your Grandson is making a good recovery ... It must be a very worrying time for you all and my thoughts are with you. Big hugs!

They installed my new stamp room window yesterday, so being in there is going to be wonderful on a whole new level now. I can't wait to start making cards again. I love the sweet simplicity of this. It instantly appeals to me. Diane, I didn't realize the extent of your grandson's injuries. I knew it was serious, but this is more serious than I imagined. I'm so sorry. It sounds like he'll be in good hands.
