Hi Everybody, Wow I can't believe its Friday, the days and weeks just seem to fly by.. Today is a beautiful autumn day with golden orange and yellow leaves surrounding my acreage.. The river is high because we have had so much rain but it is the most relaxing thing the hear. The birds chirping with the sound of the water gracefully flowing down the river... Oh my I think I am putting myself to sleep..lol.. On to my card. I am entering this card in 2 challenges the first one is over at LOTV.. the challenge is to use nontraditional Christmas colors.
