A Season of Change

I know yesterday was the first day of Fall, or Autumn if that's what you call it, and that means it's cooler, right?

Fall really is one of those times when I wish I lived where you could see and feel the seasons change, I mean really change. Not just a tree here or there and the occasional cool day. I'd love to go on a hayride, or even make a trip to an apple orchard or a pumpkin patch....that would really put me in the "fall mood." But I don't think that will be happening, so I have to do what I can to remind me it's making fall themed cards like this one.
So, here's hoping to cooler days and lots of fun fall activities!

A little stumped!

I can't believe it's been over a month since I last blogged--see I told you I didn't know if this was my thing!

Kids are back in school, I'm back at work, the weather is suppose to be getting cooler--not here-- and it's time to start getting things done that I've been meaning to get done. You know, those things like watching those movies that are on your list of ones you haven't seen yet! Everyone needs a little "me" time to do that don't ya think? Yah I know, it's wishful thinking.

Today, I'm making cards--which is what I do best! I had to come up with a card for a 9 year old boy. Well, seeing as I don't have boys, it's always hard for me to come up with just the right idea for a boy. I mean, what do they like?!

So, here's what I came up with. Everything I thought might be in a boys pocket, a slingshot, a rock, a bandana, a lasso and a stick of gum. I REALLY wanted to put matches in the pocket to go along with the birthday candles, but realized they would be yanked out of the pocket and end up in the hands of his 5 year old brother, and believe me when I say, that would be disastrous! Besides that his parents would probably ask that I don't make them birthday cards again, for anyone in their family!

So, what do you think?
