Autumn Blessings!

Happy Fall!

Cooler temps have arrived here in NW Ohio, which is a welcomed change.  We have had a hot humid summer.  I haven't been in my craft room for about a week due to taking care of my son.  A deer ran out in front of him on 9-15.  He was on his motorcycle and wears a helmet and protective gear.  He is very lucky that he didn't have any serious injuries.  The X-rays for his hip, knee, and elbow showed no fractures.  I took him to two doctor appointments and the ortho doctor felt he had internal bruising on his hip and upper thigh area.  He's hobbling around on crutches and is improving.  Ok, onto a lighter note...

It was good to get back to some creating.  It certainly helps me relax and get my mind off of things.  I already had these PTI images inked up.  I used an MFT stencil for the background and added sparkly dots for my fall card.  I'm entering this card over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.  And, here is my card...

Autumn Blessings to you all!  Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by today!  Take care and have a wonderful week!
