just a note

Yesterday, when I was typing my blog post, I thought that it was Friday.  It must have been because my son had the day off for conferences.  So, I said have a good weekend when I ended my post.  Well, since I was a day off, I have another card to share! :)

I created this fun autumn themed care using the Leaf Prints stamp set and patterned papers from the Autumn Abundance patterned paper pad.  I added some cream crocheted lace and some orange jute twine from my etsy shop.  This card is also now listed in the shop.  Thanks so much to everyone who has purchased from my shop!  I hope you're enjoying your goodies and cards!

My sister is in labor right now so I should have a new baby niece tomorrow.  We will probably go over to visit them.  She has been in labor since they induced her early this morning so I'm hoping the baby comes soon and everything goes well.

Have a great weekend!
