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!

  1. Margaret, your card is basic and wonderful! I love the DP you used and the dimension on the sentiment. LOVE IT! Glad you were able to get some crafting time in too.
    Great photos too. No leaf changes down this way but know that it's coming - maybe! LOL!

  2. Love your CAS style card Margaret and your pictures are fantastic. So happy it's fall! xx

  3. What a lovely card, and so crisp and clean - perfect for a holiday greeting! What a gorgeous set of Fall photos, too - just green palm trees here, all year long, lol.

  4. Helllllooooooooo there!! :) So great to be on your blog again too. Glad to hear that the creative bug is still in you and you did make a very beautiful CAS Christmas card. At least you're early for that one. Those pictures you took were just jaw dropping. The scenery and colors just ooze that crisp cool weather I love. What a beautiful place for a reunion.
    So great to hear from you again. Until next time....
