Timeless Tuesday....it's fall/Autumn




Well this week's challenge at TT is since it's now fall ...show it. So instead of falling into a pile of leaves and having that wonderful smell about me I used fake leaves for my picture. ( Took them off my wreath I have on my dining room table. I went to the Calender set # 3 again and chose the mums ( not like mother moms but flower mums. Did a bit of water colored pencil work and used my Spellbinder deckled edge rectangles and a bit of golden organish yellowish cs to create this card. Wow did you notice my ribbon matches the card so well? That was a chance meeting for the two items and they fell in love immediately. Added a panel of dotted swiss punched out bg paper ( doesn't show very well in photo) , used the bow easy with a little blinger and I'm done for the day. This was an easy peasy card and I'll just add a sentiment on the inside and it's good to go to somebody.
Weather has cooled somewhat and it's just awesome to open the windows each a.m. and feel the coolness. I'm so proud of myself as I went back to my old haunt...the gym. Only stayed for about 45 mins. but it's my start for a healthy plan of action. Also joined WW ( weight watchers)
and so between the two things I hope I get back to a good and healthy me. Keep sweating is my new motto. Have a good week fellow bloggers. Talk soon.

Pat this is amazing! Going to the gym? Not this old broad! I've been gardening. It does the trick for me!
