I'm Back!

Posted by: Sprytebyrd / Category: , , , , , , , , ,

I'm back from my vacation in Hawaii - I've been back for a while, but I had so much to catch up on that I'm just now getting back to the challenges!

Here's a card that I've made for the change of seasons.  I just love the autumn colors that come out at this time of year!

This is also a new card style for me, that my daughter and granddaughter introduced me to - called a Z-Fold - I really like this!  It's different, but still easy enough to remember how to do!  :)

There are quite a few challenges that I can enter this into:

Cute Card Thursday - Make Your Own (This cute little felt flower is handmade)
Paper Sundaes - Change of Season
Crafty Pad - Something for a Friend
Stamptacular Sunday - BFF (Button, Flower, Friend)
Stampin' For The Weekend - Autumn Inspiration
Belli Challenge - Pumpkins (and an old and forgotten stamp!)
Crafty Cardmakers - Fancy Folds
Pile It On - Things in 3's (3 pumpkins, 3 buttons)

I'm on Vacation!

Just a quick note to let you know that I haven't disappeared!  :O)

I'm on vacation with my Hubby in glorious Hawaii!!

I have many family members here and it is great being able to catch up with them and spend some relaxing time on the beach!

Will be home soon - and back to playing in challenges and sharing my cards!!

Hugs to all!
