a card for fall...

Hi all...
I cannot believe it is Monday! On Friday, I remember thinking..."ah the whole weekend ahead of me" I procrastinated on some stuff and now Monday is here...oh bad.

Saturday Ashley & Nate moved all of Nate's stuff into their new apartment...Ashley will be moving in after the wedding. I helped her move things around and get things unpacked (believe me I have tons of experience...I have moved way too much). when I left on Saturday afternoon, things were pretty much in their place and I think we made it feel like "home". It is starting to hit me that Ashley will be moving out for good this time...I guess that is a good thing...but I will sure miss having her around all the time!

While procrastinating to clean my upstairs bathrooms, I did get some stamping in...Priorities I tell ya, lol! I pulled out my Text Box stamp set and decided to make my own background paper. I think this came out pretty fall'ish looking (even though it is still 100 degrees here in Phoenix).

I am excited to start my Type Writer class today...Mike has the Direct TV people coming to install a dish on our house (so he can get the NFL channel), so I have to leave work a little early to let them that will give me time to watch my video and hopefully get a jump on my homework...hope to share more about my class this week.

*note: I have had several comments regarding my wedding invites...if you would like me to send you the supply list/directions please email me (link at the right) with your email address, or leave it in a post. For some reason I cannot get the email info from the posts (does anyone know how to change that on the Blogger set up?).

supplies used (SU! unless noted):
stamps: Text Box (PTI)
paper: Chocolate Chip/Whisper White/Old Olive/More Mustard
ink: Chocolate Chip/Old Olive/More Mustard
accessories: Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon

I couldn't find your email address on your blog, but I would love it if you could send me your supply list and directions. I'm actually curious as to how the card opens. I'm in the process of designing my wedding invites, so any help info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much!
