Rainy Day Sketch

Susan posted her sketch for October and I needed a masculine card and thought this would work great, you can find her details here on her blog . She is also giving away a set of Tim Holtz stamps if you play along.

Studio G stamps (pumpkins), colored with markers, cut out and foam tape to pop them up
Recollections leaf stamped border
Hampton Art sentiment stamp
Ribbon is recycled
McGill square punch w/black enamel accents for the dots
Well they are telling us it is going to get up to 86 today, and I guess that will break a record if we do, and then it will be in the 50's the rest of the week, so I am going to get out there today and finish up some touches up of painting that needs to be done to the deck while my hubby puts up my new bird feeder for me.
I mentioned we went on a hike and picnic this past Sunday, so I thought I would share a couple pictures.

Yes that is me on our picnic and my hubby decided to get a pic of me right after I took a bite and yes my mouth is full.

This is the part of the trail that we walked and it led us down to one of the inlets on the lake and to the right of this is where the laked opened up, I just love the colors in this shot.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope your enjoying a good week, with some great weather,
