Fall Wedding

It is hard to realize that it is the last week of September already.   We are having glorious weather here, mostly blue skies, some winds, and bright golden air.  This is my favorite time of year, crisp and cool.  I love it.  Meanwhile, we have completed four and one-half weeks of school, which is one-eighth of the school year!  When you look at it like that it is completely amazing.

I am back to crafting again, thank goodness.  I really missed it but just couldn't get much done, don't know why.  From reading other blogs I know that this does happen sometimes.  Hope it won't hit again for a very long time!  Like, never... (My card does NOT have a strange bump on the left side.  That must have been something behind it, I didn't notice until now.  Oops!)


I have a wedding card to share today.  I keep forgetting to take pictures of my cards, so have missed the two others that I made last week, but I'm glad to share this one. I used a cut file by Bird but changed the sentiment in the center to a lovely rose instead.  While I cut the background out of white cardstock, the rose is cut from silver glitter paper, and both are backed with blue glitter paper.  The glitter paper is from American Crafts and cuts beautifully!  Inside is a decorative piece of the blue paper, but I didn't get a good picture of it.  (I'm hoping to get a new camera for my birthday!)

If you have a cutting machine and have not already connected with Bird's wonderful cut files, check them out.  I cannot tell you how wonderful they are.  I have really enjoyed using them.

I have to laugh at myself...  I was coloring digis last night when it suddenly dawned on me how funny I must look.  Here I sit, just turned 61 years old, and coloring those little digis.  I may have entered my second childhood already!  But that's okay because I am having fun.  

Wishing everyone a wonderful Autumn, relief from the hot, dry summer.
