Spring ahead to...fall?

Aww yes....the beginning of spring always mean it is time to start making....fall cards?

I think this Sasafrass Lass paper is supposed to be some sort of flower...but I thought they kind-of looked like I used them for fall anyways!

And then a simple Back to School card featuring a Hambly rub-on. Love the simplicity of this for some reason.

So, that is how I spent most of last night. I did watch One Tree Hill from 8-9p, but other than that I scrapped the night away and loved on the pups a bit. I am surprised that I got as much sleep as I did last night. The pups are normally at attention at every noise on the first night Josh is gone. But, not the case last that is nice. I normally have to deal with a slew of barking the first night he is gone.

Josh is having a great time in Minneapolis, and I am so glad. He has agreed to put any career moves on hold until Casey graduates from high school, so I can be part of all of it. He has been in the same position now for 6 I am sure it can be monotonous at times. I think this new thing he is part of will help that, and will start giving him ideas of where he wants to go next in the company...which is awesome!

In some scrappy news...there are more cards posted at the CPS Sketch Blog for this week's sketch, and Melissa did a GREAT bow tutorial on Monday. Be sure to check it out...your bow tying will never be the same!

That is all I have for now. I know some people have tagged me, and I am not ignoring you. I will just have to do it an a post later this week!
