Harvest Time and Shooting Time

Talk about not feeling like Fall. It's been in the nineties here in our part of Ohio for the last week. The Penmaker and I did some yard work yesterday, and the temperature seemed extreme for September. Maybe I should switch back to baby or birthday cards until it cools down a bit. I hope that will be this week.

I bought some of Graphic 45's An Erie Tale collection and put it together with that Harvest Time tag from the G45 Place in Time November sheet. A good mix, I thought. 

The light brown flower is one of the Prima Serenity that I love and use so much. The small orange ones are by I Am Roses. The beautiful orange seam binding ribbon  just came from Prairie Bird Boutique (How could I be out of orange seam binding this time of year?), and my bow is tied with May Arts natural burlap string. The leaves are my hand-dyed wool ones cut with Alterations Mini Branch & Leaf set. There's a little clump of Spanish moss in there, too.

My copper maple leaf is from Momenta. The calendar piece is from an Idea-ology ephemera pack by Tim Holtz, and I cut the orange dotted frame with Spellbinders Labels One.

The Penmaker got back from the New York trip safe and sound Sunday evening. I'll tell you I was never so happy to see someone as I was when he pulled the car into the garage. I guess that's a pretty normal reaction for a couple that are going to be celebrating their forty-nineth anniversary next week.

From what I hear, the shooting went very well and they had an enjoyable time together. That's team work, right!

Father , son and the instigator of the whole thing.

Now for hours and hours of editing and what ever else he does to make it all happen. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for stopping by!
