Saying good-bye to fall!



Winter officially hit our valley on November 13th! We had seven inches of snow fall and while it was beautiful, those who had to drive in it had a treacherous trip. Schools closed and kids had a day to sleep in and play in the snow. 
This is a scheduled card and hoping all of my scheduled cards work. I am embarrassed to admit that I have lost who the artist is but I "BOUGHT" two digi's from her on etsy and promptly lost who it was. If anyone know please let me know so I can give her credit. It is a lovely image and I loved coloring her. I thought with the beautiful sunflowers she would make a beautiful fall card. I used a Memory Box die for the die cut and added some Stickles for sparkle. Some flat back pearls and liquid pearls add some additional interest. My sentiment on the front was cut with a stitched circle die. Both sentiments inside an out  came from a yard sale purchase. Score! I hope each of you are keeping warm and safe and for those in the USA may you enjoy the blessings of Thanksgiving with those you love.
My Song: Bye Bye Blackbird
Pack up all my cares and woes,
Here I go, singing low,
Bye, bye, blackbird.
Where somebody waits for me,
Sugar is sweet, so is she,
Bye, bye, blackbird.
No one here can love and understand me,
Oh, what hard luck stories they all hand me.
Make my bed and light the light,
I'll arrive late tonight,
Blackbird, bye, bye.
