Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

My Goodness Where Has My Day Gone?

I did spend part of this morning making this for
Make a Halloween Pennant

We were given the image of the pennant for our inspiration. This is what
I did. The ghost and letters are printed on vellum. The wispy stuff is a piece
of stretched until it started to tear dryer sheet. I also used a scrap
of sparkly black fringe. So Boo, or maybe I should say Boo-Hoo,
I might just have missed the deadline.

this month's theme is House with a subtheme of Flowers'for this week.
Also, it is for the All Sorts Challenge Country English Garden.
I'm new to this challenge.

I colored this sweet stamp from AJs Country Stampin with colored
pencil. I do wish I'd colored it a bit brighter. I was going for pastel and came
close to ending up with blah. This looks sort of like an English Country Garden,
a very simple one, maybe.

I couldn't stop there. I put it on this card for the
Fall Colors challenge at More the Merrier.
They just completed a 'Make a Slice of Cake' challenge.
You should see the entries. FABULOUS.

Oh, here's the card.

All I did was subdue the color on this fall leaf background paper
and add my completed tag and flowers.

Don't forget to check out the Cake Slices.

I'm very excited about a scrapbook project that I'm working on
with my friend Sheri. She has asked a few of her friends
to help her make scrapbook pages for her daughter's upcoming
wedding. I was so happy that she asked me to help. And,
while at Walmart this a.m. I found some wonderful ivory lace ribbon,
ivory satin flowers, wedding stickers and journaling stamps. They will
be perfect for her pages. I wonder if Sheri is aware of the fact that
I've only made 3 scrapbook pages in my life. Trusting soul isn't she?

Hi Jeanette

Well I certainly wish my English Country Garden was as beautiful as your image. (Mine has too many weeds and brambles for my liking).

I love your card and think the pastel look is just perfect. Any brighter and I think it would have overpowered that gorgeous background.

Love the leaf!!

I hope you have enjoyed your first challenge with us at Allsorts and hope we see you again.

Love Jules xx
