Happy Fall!

Wanted to post a few pictures of cards I worked on today... The one with the dove is for my card swap. The other is one I'm making for myself and Jennifer is she likes them...I took a picture of the inside, they may show up blurred a little, it's hard to take a picture of verses up close enough so that you can see. Sorry the verses don't show up well. The dove card is embossed in silver with a tiny pearl embellishment on the eye. On the snowflake on the snowman card is a tiny red embellishment on the center of the snowflake. Jennifer let me know about these.
Enjoy and will post more later on.

Happy Fall is here!

Well, I thought I'd better update everyone... Not an awful lot going on.
Royce has added a roof to the deck. We are waiting for the shade cover to come in to put on top of the rafter's he added. He put them every 2 feet apart. Cut out the ends so they are decorative. Looks so much better. Not to mention that we will be able to sit out there more often. He is lighting it as well as installing two indoor/outdoor fans. That will help with the bugs. I'm just thrilled to have it done.
I went to a workshop today, we got a lot of scrap booking done, what we did was set up pages out of a kit we all bought from Close To My Heart. It is called Magnifique. Beautiful paper!
I'm also getting all my card ideas together for the Christmas Card making season. I have quite few to make this year, but the numbers doesn't scare me. I made over two hundred last year and I don't have quite as many to make this year. I'm just happy to be doing it and to have a great place to work in.
Is everyone happy that we celebrated the first day of fall this past week? Just wish the temperatures would come down so that we could enjoy the outdoors more. It was in the 90's all week. Hopefully this week will be cooler.
This next Saturday, we will be going to hear Sherry Damron preach at the Technical College in Vidalia. Sherry is Royce's daughter in law. She's very anointed and very gifted. We are all proud of her. We wish her well and send her many blessings and God's love.
Take care my dear friends and have a great week.
Again! Happy Fall!!!!

Happy Labor Day Weekend

Happy Labor Day weekend, I hope everyone is enjoying themselves. We are, we had a nice relaxing day today.
Yesterday, we had a big fish fry. All the boys were in from working and we invited all the brothers and sisters and some friends. Royce spent over a week catching fish at his son's pond on his property. He caught tons and many big ones as well. We had brim, catfish, and bass. Anyway, we had a head count of about 32 people. The finished garage we have was packed to the brim. We had tons of fish, fries, and hush puppies. Everyone brought a dish and we had a bunch of food. We also celebrated Sherry Damron's (daughter in law) birthday. We gave her a card shower and had a nice big cake. She was surprised and very pleased.
Two weeks ago we had another cook out with burgers and dogs and all the trimmings. This was Royces 65Th birthday celebration. He wasn't surprised as he knew we were having it. But he received gift cards from the kids for Lowe's for his next project. Also a really nice book to read. We had a great time. He enjoyed having all the kids home under one roof at one time, which is very rare.
I'm not sure what his next big project will be. He's looking into smaller wood projects for Christmas gifts. We are also looking at making some funny scary things for the yard for Halloween. I will post pictures if we actually build and display anything.
I don't know about all of you but I'm looking so forward to fall. I'm so tired of the very hot weather. I'm ready for a change and very anxious to decorate. Making plans already for October thru December. You know me, I'm always ready to celebrate the holidays in a big way.
Some of the gals that I scrap book with and I are planning a Kroptober fest in October. We've set the date and I'm making plans for favors and etc. We will simply scrap all day and have a great time. That usually sets off the Christmas card making.
I have many plans already for fall and Halloween cards along with the Christmas cards. I so enjoy making them and getting them all done...
That's all the news for now, be blessed everyone and enjoy the upcoming season changes.
God Bless!
