Fall Ramblings

I know I have not been around much, have not had much time to create, been very involved combining my crafting room and my Genealogy research room, that has left hardly any energy left over. And that has been put into commitment issues, local card and layout contests at our local Scraping and Stamping Store "The Cove", great place!! So got my card creation done, sorry forgot to take a picture of it, and working on the two page layout which has to be done by tomorrow. Then I have to get a card done for a pairing up challenge on Flickr, in the Hero Arts group, where a very nice collection of women get together and make their projects using Hero Arts stamps and then load them onto Flickr, a lot of inspiration comes from this group!!

So I was paired up with a very nice lady, Anette, from Way down by Africa, we would both make a card using the same stamp, and then create away to our own tastes, then we upload our creations together and people get to see what we each come up with, and we have done 4 stamps so far and the 5th one has to be done by Monday, so i want to get it done before the weekend!! I have this habit of waiting till the last minute to do things, I always say I won't but I always end up doing it just that way!!

So hopefully after the end of this month I will start publishing on a daily basis and have more time for creating.

We are off next weekend for a lovely long weekend for a Fall Foliage mini vacation to NY state, up by Lake Keuka, by Hammontown, to visit my brother, me hubby and lovely Rhodesian Ridgeback Mirage, Administrator of this blog!! Can't go any where with out the dog!! She is my daily partner in crime, would be lost without her!!

Oh well, posted with this are two cards I have done recently and will post another (my challenge card) by Monday when I get that one done.

Off to watch some TV with Hubby, hope everyone has a good weekend.!!

Sorry, have not been around much, have not had time to do any creating. I am making some cards for OWH (Operation Write Home) and also World card making day and the challenge at Hero Arts. The best stamp company around, product and customer service wise!!
Anyway, this week I will be cleaning and organizing my craft room which was my research room doing Genealogy for over 30 years, so a daunting task to say the least. But needs to be done, as the room I have been using to do my crafting in gets very cold in the winter, it is a porch of sorts with not much heat, in which I did not do much creating during the last winter, except for when I used the space heater, which it has just gotten to crowded out there to use, not safe anymore. So cleaning I will be doing a lot of!!!

So should be back in a week or so, maybe less, if all goes well.
Thanks for stopping by.
