It's been awhile...

During the last four years, I begin the school year with 6 weeks of hell that the school calls Soccer Season.  During those six weeks, my son eats, drinks, and sleeps soccer.  If there isn't a game, there's practice.  There is some form of soccer occurring daily.  Throw in piano lessons for my daughter and just the pains of getting back into the routine of school and you will understand my "hell".

Well, now the soccer season is coming to an end.  It's bittersweet as my son will be graduating this year.  Unless my daughter decides to pick up up soccer next year (which is unlikely), the "hell" that is soccer season is over forever.  Depressing as it is, it does mark the start of the Fall Season, which is my favorite!  Love all the pretty colors and  cool, crisp days.  Makes me smile.

On the bright side, I will have more time to sit at my desk and play with my stamps.  I did some more organizing over the weekend, and actually managed to get this card completed.  I utilized two stamp sets from Newton's Nook Designs, Wagon of  Wishes and Love a' la Carte . As well as some rich inks from Close to My Heart to create the background. Simple card, but a great way to usher in the season!

Happy Harvest!
