Oak Wreath

Happy Labor Day everyone. Enjoy the last of this long weekend.


I used the newest digi Oak Wreath from Designed2Delight. It is free this week, so grab it and join us for the Delightful Inspiration progressive challenge during September. If you play along and link your card by Thursday each week you will get the next digi emailed to you on Friday.

I also am participating in the Double Delight challenge this week (DD10), Autumn is in the Air. The sketch is the MMSC69. What a perfect sketch for a wreath!

I finally cut into some of this retired SU dsp. It is one of my favorites, that I've been hoarding. I bought two packs when it was retiring, then just admired them for a few years, LOL! Guess I should go catch up on the Hoarders Buried Alive episode I dvr'd last night. Ever watch it, scary how so many of them are crafters! I dvr it each Sunday night and watch it with my second DS, Liam, every Monday, it's sort of our thing. He gets especially excited when there are bugs and rodents involved. Good lesson on why it is important to clean up the playroom, too.

Hope you have a wonderful day. We are preparing for the first day of school tomorrow. Everyone is looking forward to it.
