Hello FALL....

Amazing, isn't it?
Days, weeks and months pass by so quickly, and here we are...summer is gone and Fall is fast upon us. The colors of Fall are so beautiful, yellow, orange and rusty reds...ahhh if only the temp would stay in the 60's and 70's, I'd be HAPPY!!!

It's good to be back here on the blog again.
It's been a VERY long healing journey for my husband (see previous post).
We are finally at the place where he can run small errands, help with some chores, and start feeling like a whole person again. And me too...I have resumed the two Bible Studies I have, enjoying lunch with friends now and then, and WALKING MY DOG!!!
God has showered us with His GRACE to get through this and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this journey we are on is in His hands. That doesn't mean it's not difficult, but it does mean that He is LORD OF ALL in our lives and He is overseeing every bit of the process...

I am still not in full swing of my crafting time but I am working hard to find the time to sit at my desk and CREATE!!! I am sure you know how it is...ideas and images run around in our heads and we just NEED TO PUT SOMETHING ON PAPER!!!
Well, here is the first card I made with a stamp I won last year from                                     The card didn't turn out quite how I wanted it...but it was fun to do and I found the two little gingerbread people in my stash of "metal things" that I hoard. I LOVE METAL but don't seem to use it nearly as much as I would like. I don't even know where these two little people came from...but I know that I have had them a looong, looong time.

So, here's my card...


I used a Tim Holtz stamp on the background (in yellow marmalade), I love that stamp!
My main image is colored with Tombow markers with the addition of gold and silver.
The bow is hemp cord and a red piece of yarn from my stash.
That "Greetings and Kind Thoughts" is from 

I am entering this card into these challenges:
