It’s been so hectic lately that I haven’t had time to blog any of my projects.  I haven’t even taken pictures of some of the things I made before they flew out the door!

In addition to so many assignments due for a few courses I’m taking, our poor dog had an episode this past weekend and we spent every second with him instead of working on any hobbies or errands etc.  He’s doing much better today but we’re not really sure what he has or what caused it – it was either a mini stroke or something called vestibular disease.  Scary, scary!  Poor little guy had zero balance and kept falling over on one side.  He’s walking really well now (and never missed a meal, the little pig!) but he lists to one side as if he just got off a boat and he’s extra clumsy.  The vet said we should just observe him and if it happens again we’ll get all the scary tests done to see if he has a tumour.

Enough about my household drama.  Last week I made a wedding card that turned out exactly as I pictured it.  I can count on one hand how often a card turned out true to my vision so I was quite tickled that it worked out.

The wedding is a Fall theme.  I could have gone cute but played with a few ideas and came up with this:

fall wedding

I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the leaves and embossed the word love. (using an ancient SU! stamp – one of my first SU! purchases)  I didn’t have any appropriately coloured embellishments so I used some copics to colour some flat backed pearls in Autumnal hues.

This is a larger 6.5X5 card on natural cardstock.  White would have been too cold.

Must dash.  Lots to do before bedtime and it’s almost 10 pm!
