Hello! Happy Thursday! Thanks for coming by today!
How is your week going? It's been a little hectic around here this week. Orla was already sent home from school sick. So she has been home a couple of days. There are some things going on with Declan's education program that have to be worked out. And of course I waited til the last minute to make 12 cards to send out to Inky Antics. Why do I procrastinate so much? I have such good intentions with many things....but then put them off and put them off... Speaking of which, if you have won something in the past month or so from my blog and have not yet received it...it is because it is just being mailed out today. Sorry for my delay. With all my IA cards done and today's card already made, I spent Wednesday night getting packages ready to go the PO. I also started to go through my Stampin' Up stamp sets. I have to start cleaning out. I think I probably have a couple hundred SU! sets that I don't ever use. They are just taking up precious shelf space in my stamp room. I will be saving most of my sentiment sets and a few holiday sets...but I will be liquidating all the others! Every thing must GO! GO! GO! LOL! I also must learn to stop buying things in large quantities and then just hoarding them. Remember when those little white tin lunch boxes were all the craze and they were hard to find? That is because I bought them all...and still have them!!! YIKES!
Anyhooooo, as previously mentioned, I have good intentions....but we'll see how much I actually part with. LOL

This Wheat Riley image was just released this month from Hanna Stamps! Isn't he the cutest?! I just love farm and country stuff! And have I mentioned that I love Fall too?! heeheehee

Thanks to everyone who went over to Elena's blog and showed her some support. I wasn't lying when I said she is a great stamper, was I? I hope that she continues to stamp and share her wonderful creations with all of us.

It's 1 am and I am going to try to get to bed "early" tonight (Wed. Night) ...so I am going to stop blabbing now.

Have a legendary Thursday!!!

Beautiful card!!! Love it and love the weather it reminds me of.

You need to get a picture of your new do up for us and I would love to see some pics of your studio collection :-) I've been purging lately too but then finding it hard to let go of some of it even though I never use it. You just never know when it might come in handy!

Love your Riley and I love the fall too, not that we have one here in Los Angeles but I do love the fall colors and stamp a lot of fall cards so I still have fall in my stamp room. Great background papers, and love the composition. Stinkin' cute!
