Thought I'd share few photos taken here at/near Moose Trail Acres yesterday, October 21st. Today is even more beautiful, so I will be out shooting this afternoon as I drive around the county. For now, here are 3 beautiful shots:
Calico Mountains & Snow on Schweitzer) ~ Out on the Highway from MTA
Autumn Trees Along the Roadway ~ Next Road Over From MTA
Turkey Crossing ... single file! ... "This sheriff's rig has us covered!" :D
ENJOY ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL AUTUMN DAY! :D ~~Cari~~

If you receive my newsletter, you heard me mention the adorable painted pumpkins I found on DecoArt thanks to my twittering friend, DecoGirl. Be sure to check these projects out as they are just too much fun! And if you get the chance, drop a note to DecoGirl on twitter and let her know I sent you! :)
The fourth Crafteez project sheet is now available at CariCreates.com! This adorable card features a "puffy" quilted-look giraffe on a welcome card for baby. As a bonus, you can also download the printable of the giraffe outline. Just visit my Crafteez page!
I always love to create beautiful handmade gifts to give to family and friends at Christmastime. The time to start on those projects, of course, is *now*. And just in time to get you started, I've added some new selections to my Books Etc Shop! You'll find some fun crafting ideas for the holidays in these books - including the latest Gooseberry Patch Christmas book, an all-time annual favorite of mine! Just visit the book shop and you can get really great prices through my association with Amazon.

Here it is, the Stump Cake! Friends provided me with photos from the internet of the kind of cake they wanted, with just a couple adjustments. They wanted a Christian cross between their initials rather than just a plus sign. I went with cheesecake filling between the layers - yum! The groom, a logger for many years, came to the cake table with his CHAINSAW! LOL! Thankfully, they chose to cut the cake with a regular knife, though. :D
For anyone wondering about the bark texture - I found a new use for my all-time favorite kitchen tool. It's the Pampered Chef "Hold'n'Slice" tool. It was *perfect* for "texturizing" the stump cake! :D
