How has your weekend been?  It has been pretty nice around here.  We went to the Albert City Thresherman's show yesterday, and then we were bums the rest of the day.  I woke up this morning wanting something different, for breakfast.  So, I made pumpkin spice waffles with scrambled eggs and bacon, and I can't even tell you how excited I was.  Everything was delicious!  The house smelled of pumpkin pie, and it reminded me of the holidays.  It made me miss my sister and I can't wait to see her.  We usually get together for Thanksgiving each year.  My daughter said she was woken up by the smell, and couldn't wait to come downstairs to see what was going on.  What a great way to be woken up, in my opinion. :-)

I was happy to get back into my craft space yesterday afternoon.  There were so many challenges I wanted to participate in this last week, but just didn't have the time.  Here is one that I did get done though.

This really took me a while to put together, as I wasn't happy with my first, or second, attempts.  This didn't even turn out how I pictured it in my head either, but I think it turned out ok.  The colors were definitely challenging for me, and I'm sad to say I used the last couple pieces of Wild Wasabi I had on hand.  I will have to see how I can get more of this cardstock.   It was one of my favorite colors.  I needed a little bit of something, but wasn't sure what, so I used strips of verse from an old bible I had.  This is the second time I've cut pages out of a bible, so I'm hoping no one gets offended.  I do have several others that we do not use for anything other than worship, I promise! 

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges.

ODBDSLC21: Sketch

I'm off to try to put another card together, and then cook meals for the week.  I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday afternoon.

A beautiful card. The sentiment is lovely and the wispy embellishment behind it is perfect.
