Fall Card - and some big news

Boy, did it feel good to do a little stamping tonight! What a whirlwind the last seven days have been. (More about that later.)

How about a fall card? We have a freeze warning tonight, so I guess fall is really here. The weather sure has been beautiful, though.

The stamp is a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp (from Great Groupings), stamped in brown Versafine ink, embossed with clear embossing powder and colored with markers. I punched the corners with a Marvy punch and wrapped the image with coppery cord, then I mounted it on Really Rust and Old Olive. I added a little bit of brown ribbon and a Prima flower with a copper-colored brad. The “Happy Fall” is from a clear Stampendous set. I added some scored lines with my Scor-Pal. That’s about it.

What’s been going on, you may ask. Family visits, an out-of-town trip, emptying a room, painting it and putting it back in order with new furniture and totally re-organizing it, and oh yeah – becoming a grandma for the first time! Our daughter and son-in-law had their baby boy on Thursday – on my mom’s birthday. How special! And his name is Andrew James – named after his great-grandpa (my father-in-law) and his grandpa (my husband.) With my daughter’s permission, I will share a picture soon. However, we’re headed out of town again tomorrow for the weekend.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
