Hello Again and Happy September with a YEEHAW! :)

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice (to celebrate being back to blogging again!)

Hello to all of you lovely peeps!  :)

I know I have been away from blogging for a bit. I took a little break toward the end of the summer, but am back again to say howdy! to put it plainly, Latte dying just took the stuffing right out of me.

I can't say that much eventful has been going on, unless you count numerous car repairs, hubby & I celebrating 29 years of marriage, and watching all 5 seasons of Downton Abbey as excitement. a lovely fall when the front porch stairs collapsed, but other than that, life is just rolling right a long. I hope all of YOU are right as rain!

I have been crafting while away, so will be showing some of those projects in the next few posts. My first project to share is one of the cowboy cards I promised back at the beginning of summer. I'll have another one in to show in a jiffy....

The images are by QKR Stampede and Eureka, papers are from the Carta Bella Giddy Up digital collection, burlap ribbon is May Arts, bark star is from Live and Love Crafts, while everything else is from my stash. inside is the verse that was used for the summer at Camp, Acts 1:8.

Thanks for hanging in there with me! I will try to start making my way around to your blogs in the next day or so. :) love ya oodles!
