Fall has arrived in Nebraska

First and foremost, I have to thank my friend Eulanda for the blog header. I keep forgetting to do that until way after I post. So sorry Eulanda. I really do like it!

Fall has finally hit Nebraska. We have our new furnace turned on, the leaves are falling very fast now and the colors are spectacular this year. The temperatures will seem very fallish later this week but not quite yet. Yesterday was 75 degrees and today will be 70. But by the end of the week they are talking highs in the 50's. Oh how I hate to see it get cold but I guess the sooner it does, the sooner it will get warm again. Football is another indicator of the fall weather and our Nebraska Cornhuskers won yesterday which makes me so happy.

For my card today, I used PTI base paper and put glitters leaf stickers on it and the popped my jar up on top of the leaves. Of course I colored with my Copics and the jar is from PaperTreyInk.

Our little Lucy turned 2 on Friday. Good heavens, that really flew by quickly. I am posting a picture of how I found her when I had to return to the bedroom the other morning before going to work. She woke up but not for very long. By the time I left the room, she was sleeping again.

I am reading a very good book by Nicholas Sparks called Safe Haven. It is his newest one and well worth picking up. Oh so good. Next I plan to read The Art of Racing in the Rain. Supposedly it is a book about a dog and very very good. Anyone read it yet?

Until next time, Happy trails to you.

Fishin in the Fall

The weekend is just about over. Boy did it fly by this time. We had the boys Saturday and they went home today. We had a blast with them. They played laser tag, miniature golf, jumped in the trampoline, plugged lots quarters into lots of arcade games and rode the go Karts at a fun center close to home. We left exhausted after many hours and grabbed dinner and continued on into the evening. We were all pooped and ready for bed.

I finished a good book today. It is a super quick read and could probably be read in a day if you don't have little ones wanting your attention :) It is Promise Me by Richard Paul Evans. Different but good.

I made this card so long ago that I don't even remember a thing about it. I chalked the sky and the little fisherman is a stamp off I got from someone. The sun is a diecut that has been hanging around forever. The grass is a punch. Of course I colored with my Copic markers. I am so sorry for the vague details.

I hope your weather is as nice as ours has been. I can't believe how beautiful this fall has been

Until next time, Happy trails to you...

Candy Apples Anyone?

What says fall more than a big bite of a crunchy candy apple? Yum yum. Due to some dental surgery tomorrow, I don't think they are in my future this year however, next year you can bet your bootie I will be crunching with the best of them. So just because I can't eat them doesn't mean I can't look at them and wish, right? I used Papertrey Ink's new Halloween Jar Fillers and their Friendship Jar set for this card. Colored with my Copics and then added some Crystal Effects to the caramel to make it shiny. The dp is from my bag of goodies as is the ribbon. I like how this one came out. Let me know what you think.

Our trees are turning such pretty colors. You can sure tell it is fall. It won't be long before we have to pull out the rakes. We haven't turned on the furnace yet so we have a "free" month coming up. No air conditioning and no furnace. Love it!

Until we meet again, Happy trails to you...
