Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Happy Fall

Good Morning Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was kind of different. It started late Friday night with the air conditioning going out. By the time someone was able to come out Saturday to fix it, it had reached 87* in the house. While we were waiting for the house to cool down, we went to visit my son. He was watching the boys while Kim had her first girls night out since she had the twins. They have really grown and are so alert now. They no longer look like newborns. I must say, I am really proud of my son, he is such a good dad! We spent Sunday packing and doing last minute odds and ends to get reading for the trip but I was able to sneak into my craftroom and make this card. By the time you read this, we will be well on our way to North Carolina to visit my sister-in-law and her husband. I am scheduling this posting since we will not have access to the Internet. Since Labor Day marks the end of Summer, I thought I would do a Fall card and use The Cutting Cafe's Welcome Fall Printable Stamp Set. It is really awesome and comes with 46 images just waiting to be printed out and colored. It also has a few sentiments---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: 4.75"x4.75"
Copic Markers
Stamps/Image: Cutting Cafe- Welcome Fall
Nestibilities: Circle, Lacey Circle
Sentiment: Cutting Cafe-Welcome Fall
Accessories: Ribbon, Flat Back Pearls, Eyelet, Craft Yarn, Foam Pop Dots
Base Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: K & Company-Classic K McKenna 12x12

You may be asking yourself...why did I make this an "odd" size. I have found it works out better for me when I make my own envelopes using patterned paper to match my card and my Scor Pal. The envelope is 5"x5" and fits perfectly into a 5'x7" clear envelope and then into a 6"x6" non bendable mailer, which is what I use to mail my cards.

That's it for today and for the rest of the week. I'm not sure when we will be returning, our plans are up in the air at this time so I'll close by saying...Thanks for stopping by, I will see you when I see you. Enjoy your day and have a wonderful week!

P.S. I tried to visit all my favorite blogs before I shut down my computer for the night, but Blogger was giving me such a fit with "Service Unavailable...Error Code 503" so if I didn't get to you last night, I'll be sure to visit you when I get back!

Hi Kelly, Last week my hubby took the AC out of the window and put it away for the winter. feels great to have the windows open and the fresh air. but soon for the real cool down then the snow in WI. 87 sounds good to me, I'm in my sweats for the winter.
