September Begins

Well, good-bye summer, hello fall.  Where did the summer go?  I can't remember one ever being so busy... and that's not good news because fall is going to be even busier!  Time to get really organized, I think.  Over all, I do like autumn with all its warm colour and celebrations, but it makes me uneasy because I know winter is coming, and the older I get, the less I like that season.  Oh, well, we're planning a nice, long sun-filled vacation this winter or early spring, so I know I will manage.

So Happy September 1, and I have another Christmas card for you today, my favourite so far:

I love the colour combination of Early Espresso and Baja Breeze, and the snowflake DSP combined with the wood grain embossed Core'dinations gives kind of a rustic feel.  I bought the Christmas Lodge stamp set last year, but was finished all my Christmas cards by the time I got it, so I haven't used it much.  It was fun to dust it off and use it again.  I love the sentiment that comes with it, too. 
And again, you see my glittery side with the Dazzling Details Stampin' Glitter and the Silver Glimmer Paper peeking out from behind the Window Frames framelit die cut with the lodge stamped on it in Baja Breeze.  I tied another little fork bow, only doubled it this time, using 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Baja Breeze.
