Feels Like Fall...M5D Throwback

Ok, I know that none of you expected to hear from me so soon already.  To be honest, I didn't expect to post so soon either, but Sue had asked us if we were interested in using this image as a throwback, and I really couldn't resist.  I didn't get a chance to use this image last Fall, and what an adorable image to pass up again.  Sometimes in getting so overwhelmed with image releases and commitments, I really miss out on using some awesome images.  This time, I really struggled to make some time to fit this in, and I had almost no supplies on hand.  When I packed, I left a few punches, some scraps of paper and little bits and pieces that didn't fit anywhere else.  I actually swiped the ribbon that I had used to decorate something else with last year.  I wasn't thrilled to not have my copics on hand either, but in the end, I am really glad that I took the time to create this little something.  If you "Fall" for this image like I did, you will find her at Sue's store..McMahon Five Designs.  She offers such a variety of possibilities for creating at this beautiful time of year.

Glad I had a chance to pop in for a little "hello" this week, and I look forward to our next visit together.  Please be patient with me for my next post though.  I'm not sure that I will be able to do another one as quickly as this one.  We are getting closer and closer to our move every day.  So much work left to do, and so little time.

My Christmas in July turned out to be Christmas in September easel card

I was sitting here thinking to myself about how long it's been since I have posted on here.  I have to apologize to you my friends for my absence.  Our move is proving to be quite the job, and much of the work I am doing sort of on my own.  My husband just had cervical spine surgery and is not able to lift or really even move too well yet.  He had some nerve damage, so his entire right arm is very weak and not very useful for even picking up so much as a drink at this point.  He is in a tremendous amount of pain right now, and I guess he will be for awhile, so I am going to have to step it up and try to do as much as I can to get us ready for this move.  Thanks for hanging in there with me and waiting so patiently as I find a way to do a post for you.  I really wanted to do this one card for Christmas in July, but time really got away from me, so I guess I am making it a Christmas in September card.  I hope you like it anyway.  It is just a little closer to Christmas now is all.  I have much of my crafting supplies packed and in storage now, so I have very little if anything left to really create with.  I may find my way to doing something little, but maybe in the meantime until our move is complete, I will try to post some more personal messages and pictures.  Once we get settled in, I hope to be back to posting regularly and have lots to share with you.  I so hope and wish for my own craft room in our new home.  I don't have one now, so that would be sort of a dream come true for me.  Thanks to all of you that offered to share what you know about Indiana.  I am looking forward to this new chapter in our lives and hope for only wonderful things to come our way.  We are all very excited to make a new beginning.

Have a safe and wonderful holiday weekend, and enjoy these last moments of summer.  They will be so greatly missed in a few months.
