Thanks


On la la...don't you love when you're going through your extras from previous projects and it jump starts a card for you?  I was cleaning up my desk this weekend and looking through my extra die cuts. These leaves popped out at me to play along with this week's CAS(E) this Sketch.  Added a touch of twine and a few pearls to finish off the card along with the stamped squares and sentiment (ignore that the sentiment is crooked...grrr!)  Not quite ready for fall to be here...but I do love fall colors.

Speaking of fall, the boys head back to school one week from tomorrow. Sunday was spent shopping on line for school supplies...so much easier than hitting Target and Office Depot (thank goodness for free shipping) and was followed up by scheduling out the week of freshmen orientation, class pick up for the younger two, show choir starting for Ryan, etc.  Busy!  Very thankful that our school district now does all forms on-line. When you have four kids, filling out all the forms can be quite a chore!

Hard to believe another summer is almost over?  When do your kiddos head back?

Gorgeous card, Lynn. I'll have to go through my stash of extra die cuts and see what jumps out at me, after seeing your little lovely. I'll admit, I don't miss the "excitement" of getting the kids ready for the school year. One granddaughter started kindergarten yesterday and one grandson starts next week. Hard to believe how fast those babies have grown! Anyway, this is one beautiful card! Have a great week. Bev

Stunning colours and fab to use stash. Goodness I don't k ow how you cope with the boys and a full time job. I find it hard to cope with me and Callum, I get stressed with just the 2 of us!

Oooh! LOVE this!! Such beautiful colors.
We homeschool so we won't start until Sept. We take our "summer" vacation in Sept. when everyone else has gone back to school. It is not as hot and less busy everywhere. :)

Oh just beautiful Lynn! I am ready for fall! I love the soft colors you used! Good luck with all of your school preparations. We homeschool year round, but take a break in the fall for our vacation. Looking forward to it!

YAY for those little spare die cuts, this is darling Lynn! We're in NE Ohio, the kids start back on the 26th here. I'll have my baby granddaughter full time again soon when her mommy heads back to her 1st grade class!

I agree on all counts, Lynn. Leftovers a boon. Fall my favorite time, especially the colors. That makes your card a winner all around.
