A Year Filled with Joy

Hello Everyone,

Oh so glad to see you again!!

I don't know about you but I think I am ready for fall. Now I can't complain about our summer this year. It's been one of the mildest I can ever remember and believe me I have been around for a lot of them. LOL I know a lot of people have/are experiencing a really hot summer and I really feel for you.Looking forward, for my area, the Old Farmers Almanac is calling for a colder than normal winter with a lot of precip, and they used that 4 letter word, snow. The nerve of some people!!! Last winter was a pretty good one but I bet we get slammed this year. Time will tell.

I guess I am looking forward to fall, look at the card I just made. Leaves and some fall-ish colors

I love this new sentiment I just received and it's perfect for a birthday card, don't you think.
The sentiment is from Verses Rubber Stamps and they have a huge array of  "Verses" to choose from.
Click here to check them out.

I used some beautiful DP on two of  the leaves and on the other one I used a copper colored CS.

That background paper is from a batch of Gelli Plate papers I made and saved. You will see them from time to time on some of my work. 

Well this week I have a few outside appointments so I will be busy with other "stuff" but that will give me time to clear my head and re-energize my muse.

    A beautiful card design. And a wonderful sentiment. I love Fall, but I have to admit that our summer did not have too many really hot days. In fact, a good portion of it was more on the cool side. I don't relish the idea of a lot of that four letter word you talked about though. Yuck! LOL
