Hi there, everyone!
So, I had lunch today with a dear friend who made me do some thinking! (Thanks so much for the inspiration I needed Isabel!!!) It has caused me to re-think how I'm interacting with all of you on my blog. So, I'm really going to make a better effort to start doing daily posts, or at least every other day with small tid-bits and start sharing more artwork. I've been sitting at the table creating all afternoon since I left her and am going to jump right in! Some of the artwork I'll be sharing this month is also from the Close To My Heart Regional Celebration that I just attended at the end of Oct. and I just needed to do some finishing touches on it. So, this first card that I'm going to post is one of those...I hope you like it! (Note - the colors aren't exact in the first pic, I guess due to lighting...not sure what was wrong. The second photo is fine. Sorry! You can see the papers in the links with the list of supplies!)
