Good Bye Summer!

Well yesterday was the first day of autumn and it was so wonderful to look out the window to see the trees changing their colour. I do so love this time of year, but I have to admit that I am sad to see summer go! I can't believe how fast it went. Well, this was a great summer because this is the one year that actually ended feeling like we had hot weather. Sometimes here in Canada the end of summer can really feel like autumn and everyone is wishing for better weather. Well not this year! It was a great one with lots of wonderful memories! Good bye summer & hello autumn!

So to celebrate this season and all of it's splendor I bring you a project that I made using Deedee's Digi of this sweet scarecrow. You can find it here! I love so many of her stamps but this one stole my heart from the first time I saw it. You have to admit that this one is super cute. Here is the Fall Plaque that I made using this image and a simple sentiment of Welcome Fall. I really love how this turned out and can't wait to put it up. Digital images are not just for making cards, but can be used for many crafting projects.

And now for a side view of the embellished sunflower centers.

Seeming that I am on the topic of Good Byes, I guess that there is no better time than now for me to say my "Good Bye" to Deedee and her Design Team. I am going through some personal stuff right now and my family needs me. It was a tough call to make, but with much prayer, thought, and many tears, I felt that it was best to step down for a time. I have made some amazing friends here and Deedee has become a dear friend to me. I have been inspired bye so many of you here and at Crafters Digital Art Center. Don't worry! I will be still popping in over there from time to time and will try to play along when I can. But just know that my time there was wonderful and I enjoyed every minute of it! This company thrives on sharing wholesome and encouraging images and I am so happy to say that I had a part in helping share it with the paper crafting world! Praying that God will continue to bless you and your company Deedee. Thanks sweetie for everything. I will still be making cards from time to time so be sure to keep checking back here for more card inspiration and maybe some fun projects too.

Visit Deedee's Digis Store for all of the amazing and wonderful fall images. Don't forget the great deal that is underway in the store right now.  Place any order of $10 or more throughout the month of September and receive this digi below for FREE! It will automatically be sent to you with your qualifying order.

Thanks for dropping bye and look forward to seeing what you create with Deedee's Digis!
Hugs & Blessings

What a wonderful and amazing plaque Dana- LOVE that scarecrow image and you made it soooo cute! Blessings to you on your struggles- hope all is well!

Hi Dana! Your scarecrow came out so nice. Really well done. :-)
About the "things" on the beach..don't worry you weren't the only one who didn't know what they were. They're horseshoe crabs. As you can see, there's tons of them there. But have no fear, the ones I found and yes, GUTTED, were dead. lol You simply stand on the top balcony of your guest house, turn the crab over, slip a spoon under his body, go all the way around and FLING the innerds as far out as possible and hope no one is standing below you. :-D
I missed you too. :-)
