Timeless Tuesday Weds. Use a doily

Well Flourishes TT this week is to use a doily on your card. Just happen to have a pack so it was not a pressure added to my weary life...just kidding , life is good. Easy peasy card when you pick out some cute background paper and match it up with your cardstock and then just as usual...slap it all together to make a card. I used as you can see the Zinnia set and just cut my scalloped circle, stamped and colored with my fabby colored pencils, added a strip of matching ribbon with a small bow and I'm done.
Hope your week is going well for all of you. We have a little break in the weather as it's not 99 as it was on Monday. I spent that day with my cute little GD Ellie and we spent about 3 hours in the water. Too hot to sit and sun . Today is only in the high 80's and that's a good relief for us. Pool time is just about over and I will miss the fun summer I had with Ellie but school starts next Monday and once again I'm on the prowl for some company. Cowboy anyone???

Timeless Tuesday...Autumn

This week at Timeless Tuesday we are to look for Autumn. So when I think about this time of the year....fall or autumn, I think about the mums that appear at the nurseries and how the colors go from the summer bright yellows etc. to a more subdued choice which includes more orange, rust, and deeper colors of rosy wines etc. I used the old mum set and just did a bit of coloring on a cut out bunch of mums with some smaller flowers and some Queen Anne's lace. Simple card .
Hope you are all well and enjoying the last roses of summer because let's face it before we know it the weather will cool and the white stuff will once again enjoy while you can. Found a hummingbird moth in my flower box this a.m. while watering and was so disappointed as last night while it was flitting there I thought for sure it was a real sweet humming bird. Still waiting to spot one this year but so far no luck. See you next time.
