cts #190 & pp #313~ Hello Autumn!

Well hello! Have you missed me? I've missed being here! Things were a bit crazy this past week. Our son was diagnosed with pneumonia last Friday, poor guy. He's on the mend though. Sweet P came down with a cold mid week. Thank goodness it hasn't become anything more than that. But it's so hard to see her not feeling well and having to gasp for air while drinking her bottle. Poor baby. She wasn't even in the mood for her favorite after nap snack of baby gold fish crackers. She calls then beesh!!

I did find some time to squeeze in a card today. I won't even tell you how long it took to make this simple card LOL!! Or how many attempts were trashed. But I managed to end up with something acceptable! This one is for CAS(E) This Sketch and The Paper Players.



The leaf is by Rubber Monger. It's stamped (PTI Scarlet Jewel ink) on a cream panel, then stamped again, watercolored and fussy cut. The second was added with foam tape and loaded up with WOS. I used two companies for the sentiment. 'Hello' is from PTI and 'autumn' is from Precious Remembrance Shop's Fall Colors Stamp Set. 


Thank so much for stopping by! ~Lisa

Great minds! I think your card is beautiful, Lisa, and I'm glad you stuck with it! Sorry to hear about the poomonia and P's cold. I send best wishes that everyone is 100% well soon!! Take care of yourself, too! Hugs, Darnell

How long it took doesn't matter when it turns out this gorgeous!! So sorry to hear your son has pneumonia, but glad to hear he is on the mend. Poor little Sweet P, it is so hard on them to be sick and hard on mommies and grammas too. My daughter has been sick this week at school and all I can do is keep telling her to get rest and drink tea.

So sorry your family has been sick, Lisa. I managed to get a cold in Indy & thought I was over it, but now I have the cough--hopefully no pneumonia! Poor Sweet P--hope she's soon feeling much better--hugs from Auntie Greta (I'll save the kisses until I'm bug free!) The leaf looks 3D--such a gorgeous CAS card!

Never fun when illness strikes, and especially when it hits the littlest among us. :(

Beautifully colored lone leaf, Lisa. Hope Sweet P and darling son get well soon!
