Fall is in the air!!!

I used to think that summer was my favorite season, but I believe that has changed. I love summer in the beginning, but about mid-July I find myself craving the fall. Fall in Montana is especially gorgeous. So many changing colors, crisp & cool air, warm afternoons, football, pumpkins...all of which lead into the bustling holiday season. I really just love this time of year.

My excitement for fall is taking over my creative time too! I made this cute little Halloween card for a sketch challenge on Christine's blog. She put together a cute little sketch that I just had to use! Be sure to check out the link, and play along if you like!

I even dusted off my sewing machine and added a little stitching to these cards. I haven't done that in ages it seems. But, it felt like they just needed that extra little crafty touch...and I was craving to use my machine. I wish I had a nicer machine that could do more, but that is okay. I will make do with what I have! I am blessed by just having a machine, and I need to make sure I use it more often. I bet you will see more stitching on my cards in the future!

Well, I hope that everyone is having a great week so far! I am getting geared up for another Friday of football, and a weekend in Sheridan! Josh has to work all weekend long, so I figured I would make a weekend out of it since I have to go by myself this week. So, Friday I will be driving on over to Sheridan, and cheering the Panthers on to victory. I am very excited for Saturday because I will be taking Tanner's (#55 on the football team) senior portraits. I have lots of great ideas for his photos and it will be fun to watch them transpire. Then Sunday I get to watch my dad preach, and will come home at some point.

I am sure I will get one more post in before the weekend, but if not...I hope that everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Until later,
