I want to let you know that I, The Mister, and Hammy, and the rest of the family, are all fine and not involved in the devastating fires happening very near us in northern California. We are only being impacted by the terrible smell and smoky haze. Thank you for your emails expressing your concern.
It has been heart-wrenching to see the destruction and loss of life. I know your praying knees are getting worn out with all the natural disasters of late, but if you can manage it, please pray for (or send positive thoughts to) those families who have been impacted and for the legions of fire-fighters working tirelessly to stop the inferno. Thank you.
I've gone a little fallish with my first card today. The flower and butterfly have warm orange and brown tones, but I kept it light by cutting the frame from the opposite side of the color wheel:
My twofer went all the way fall ... and we all fall down. Now you have a "Ring Around the Rosie" earworm. Sorry.
Before painting with my Ziggies, I heat-embossed the image in platinum.
ETA: Reader and friend Lu C is very sharp-eyed! She left me a comment noticing that there is no "s" in the the word Thanksgiving on my card! Sure enough! I never even noticed! The plastic covering that comes with the stamps shows the word with an "s," so I was confounded until The Mister told me to look at the stamp itself. D'oh! When I held the stamp up to the light, I could see that the "s" is missing! I alerted The Ton and they immediately apologized and are sending a new set without the boo-boo. Thank you to them and thank you, Lu C!!
