I'm still here.  My work schedule has changed so that I'm going to be working day shift for a while now.  It has been a harder adjustment than I thought.  Yesterday I had a horrible migraine, and I think it is because I have not been on a day schedule since I was on a cruise with my Mother and Daughter in March.  Last weekend I worked night shift and then converted right away on Monday so I really didn't have a lot of time to adjust.  Then my daughter, Amanda came home on Thursday to celebrate her golden birthday.  We did lots of shopping.  Her schedule has kept her so busy that she has lost quite a bit of weight so she needed some new clothes.  Then my husband started radiation therapy on Friday so it really has been a whirlwind.  When I went outside yesterday, the wind was cool and fall is coming as I noticed all the leaves starting to fall.  We have a yard with LOTs of trees.

My first card uses a cute image from TLC, Create.  It comes as a set of four square images.  My second card is using the new SSSC sketch and another image from TLC, Create called Harvest Time.  My final card is using this weeks Splitcoast colors and sketch to make the card.  The patterned paper and image is from TLC, Create and the wreath is available in the Pink Christmas Set.
