Fall's Fresh Start
Finally... I'm post-ing again! I can't believe it's been over TWO MONTHS since my last one, but life has a tendency to get in the way, and I'm just trying not to be too hard on myself for this long lapse. And even more frustra-ting is the even longer lull I've experienced in the creative pro-cess (in fact, this card I made last Fall!). Sure, some of it is the day-to-day life of a stay-at-home Mom: Endless laundry, cooking, taxi service to everywhere-but-the-moon, shopping, etc. But there's no doubt I'm blessed to have lots of hours of "me time" and I need to quit squand-ering them and get back to work in my craft room! But for now, the details of this card: The card base is Bazzill, as are the scalloped punched pieces (whose edges I inked with Ranger Distress 'Antique Linen' ink); the winking owl stamp is from Memory Box and was stamped in SU's 'Really Rust' ink; The trees are A Muse, as is the phrase (well, the first two words of it), and they were stamped in 'Chocolate Chip' ink. The cardstock letters, the ribbon, the buttons and the dp are all SEI's 'Madera Island' collection. Straightforward and simple!

Now, please stay tuned...I may have been in a crafting lull, but I've been keeping my camera pretty busy, and it's captured some breathtaking images of this GORGEOUS Autumn we're having here in the Ohio Valley. So see you soon with those!
