Now, how did that happen?!
Hello! I am so glad you stopped in today, and even happier that you haven't given up on my poor neglected blog! Since school began, I have not been able to squeeze much creative time into my life, but I think things are finally starting to gel into a routine.
My girls and I were recently talking about upcoming events and they mentioned Halloween. I laughed and said we had plenty of time until Halloween was here...Ummm...Hellooooo! It's the middle of October!! Now, how did THAT happen?! I don't usually make Halloween cards, so no worries about being behind on cards, but that does mean that the C word is just around the corner...
As luck would have it, I had a bit of free time last week to make a few cards, and I will be sharing them over the next few days. I decided that I really need to use up my older papers before buying anything new for Christmas! I made good progress last year, but there is still quite a bit there. Maybe by the time I finish scrapbooking Christmas, it will be gone!
Today's card is pretty simple in design because the paper had such a bold stripe pattern. It might be a little difficult to see, but the banner is actually three dimensional. I scored the strip on either side of the sentiment so it would pop up a bit.
Not much more to say about this one-pretty basic!
We recently had a family reunion at a local park with a beautiful walking trail. The leaves are just beginning to change and I managed to get a few nice pictures when DD#1 and I went for a walk.
Well, that's all I have to share for today. Hopefully, I will get another post up soon so my poor blog won't feel so lonely! Have a wonderful and creative day!
