We must all go home ...


Big thank you to the ladies at  Try Stampin' on Tuesday who counted this card in their top 3 !!

Busy busy fall here !  Sunday our street participated in Sunday Streets, which closes off  two neighborhood miles to autos.  We had several thousand people pass our way, and I swear, every one of them stopped here at our house.
The fun thing is that we had no idea what might come down the street, and they had no idea what was up ahead.  Of course, Spencer had his strawberry lemonade stand, and a sandwich board, and he was quite the hit with his silliness.  We also put out a couple of hundred lunch boxes, what we had left from our garage sale on Friday and Saturday.  People enjoyed the nostalgia, and we even sold a few.  A great way to spend a gorgeous Sunday afternoon.

Today, we finally had rain, it has been 6 months since we have had a good rain soak.  Doesn't sound like Oregon, does it !  But we are back to gray skies once again, and I have missed it so.  No one is complaining !!

Today's card is entering the challenge at

whose theme is trees and leaves, and this sketch ...

and my card ...

Hope you like it !!!
