Fall Warm Up

Hello Everyone - I've missed all of you so very much.   I won't bore you with the all the details but I have just gone through the worst month with an injury to my foot and back followed by the flu and then Cellulitis from a spider bite.   For one solid month I hardly left my bed but I am glad to be up and around now.  I still have days that find me very tired.  I can only hope I will be able to make regular appearances here from today forward.  So on to my card.  I made this card for Deedee's Digi Of The Month challenge.  The title of this set is Fall Warm-Up.  Autumn is my favorite time of the year so I just fell in love with the set the minute I saw it.  I do hope you will hop on over to Deedee's site and check out this set today.  Of course if you played along in last month's challenge you have already received this set FREE.  Can't beat that for a deal!
My health has improved  but not my picture taking so I have to apologize for this picture.  This image is so much brighter in real life but I can't seem to capture the rich colors here.  Sorry!
As you can see, I matted both the image and sentiment with black and green.  My background paper is from my stash and I do know that I have had it for maybe 7 years.  I punched out some hearts from a MS heart border punch and then I added some gems from Pizzazz APlenty on the hearts and on both the panels.  This card went together so nice and quick which is what I love about Deedee's sets.



I thank you for popping in for a visit and hope to see some of your creations made with this set.  Wishing each of you a very special day.

  5. Donna, my goodness, you have had it rough. I have wondered where you were. I sure hope the worst is over for you.

    Your autumn card and the image are great. I do like that background paper. I'm sure I've had some around for about 6 years.

    Please take care!

  8. So happy to see you back! Phew it sure is warm! That looks like a yummy beverage, but me thinks it will need to wait a bit. Your image looks super with the plaid background.

  9. My goodness Donna, that is one wild month for you!! I'm sorry to hear all this has happened to you and had you laid up for so long. I'm sure it will take a while to get your stamina back up so don't push yourself to hard. On that note though it is good to see you back! I love, love your card. This is such a cute digi set and I love hot spiced cider on a chilly fall day. I don't drink hot drinks, but will a hot spiced cider! lol I hope Sept is a much better month for you Donna. Hugs, Brenda
