Waiting for Fall

It's been really hot here and the other day we went to the grocery store and they had ceramic jack-o-lanterns out front. They were really cute but, my mind said its only August.. and then I found this plaid paper when I was cleaning and laughed and laughed. ( this body has had enough of the heat) so, it doesn't matter that It's hot outside I turned the air on and cleaned ( twice last week) to find the table and dug out some more new-ish things. 

 The sentiment on this is from Club scrap and the lie I told my self was hey, you don't have to write down its name your going to remember... ( ha, will edit later) the bloom is from a Hero Arts kit a few months ago heat embossed in gold on a scrap of blue. ( this flower was found in the mess while I was cleaning) so, all I did to it was add some shading with a pool party marker real quick. This card finishes out at 5" square.

This one the dahlia's are also from club scrap as is the sentiment ( its from an older Oopsie Daisy set) and this one is A-6 in real life. both of these card bases were made from scraps while I was cleaning up.

Oh, Stacy, I totally LOVE the sentiment on the first card. It's so very true, and I find that you, my friend, are one of those! Thank you! What a beautiful fall plaid, and I love the Hero Arts bloom (which I also have). And I love the second card with the beautiful flowers and fun/funny sentiment! I know someone who could qualify for that one! It's tough having a lot of dietary restrictions, especially today. Great cards, and thanks for sharing them here. Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
