HOW could it be that in 2 days it's going to be September?! 

It seemed like a few weeks ago that I was all excited for Boo's college commencement walk.  That was May.  MAY?!!!?!!!  Some how the last 3 months have flown by!

I love this time of year. 

We embrace a new season as we enter into fall, Thanksgiving and Christmas.   Did you know there are only 116 days until Christmas!  

I love, love, love the holidays and so does Stampin' Up!  

The BRAND NEW Holiday Catalog debuts THIS Thursday, September 1st!  

If you place an order in my online store I'll be happy to send you one!  

Holiday Catalog LSS 2016

Many of you have told me "it's too soon for holiday stuff". If that's you, then today's project is dedicated to you. 


One of the wonderful things about living in Florida is the weather.  While most states are beginning to experience cooler temperatures we are still basking in the 90's.  Bob the Builder and I are leaving on Friday morning for a few days of R&R on Sanibel Island.  I haven't been to the beach ((hanging my head in shame)) in YEARS!

This nautical card would be perfect for a beach lover.  It will also make a great birthday or thank you card for a man.  And, if you haven't noticed, nautical themes are really popular right now!

My designer is cut 3" x 4 1/4".  I separated several strands of the burlap ribbon, added a few red sequins and used the Layering Circles Framelits to house my anchor.  And yes, I did fussy cut that anchor and no, it wasn't awful.  

Here's to the end of summer and the beginning of a beautiful fall and holiday season!
