Happy Anniversary


Welcome back friends, September is here already, I am sure some of you parents are busy getting the wee ones back to school, routines, summer holidays finished, or maybe you are sending some off to university/college too.  Busy time for sure.  The summer sure has flown by and I find the older one gets the faster it does fly by.  Onto my card today for our challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks, which I am hosting as it is the first Thursday and we are also having a Guest Designer Call so if you are interesting in this, please pop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks and the information will be there.

For my card today, I am trying a new idea I've seen online and in craft magazines, the Elizabeth Craft Design Outline Stickers.  Our Challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks is "Fall" and I thought these acorns looked kind of neat, and I needed an Anniversary card as well.  So here we go.  Again, hope you get a chance to stop by our challenge, play along and maybe even enter for a guest designer spot.  Till next time happy crafting, and Happy Fall!
