Cooling Down

Dare I even say that summer has come to an end? Feels like I'm living back on the coast with all these clouds & drizzle! Seeing as I can't remember the last time I wore shorts, and faithfully wear a hoodie & contemplate warm drinks to keep me cozy in the afternoon..... I do believe fall has arrived *sniff, sniff*
I know fall has its beauty... but I love the heat!!
It seemed fitting to share this card with its autumn colors. I know you've seen this stamp set a lot, but I am amazed at how versatile it is!
I stamped the stars & cut them out to place them on the card, made the "ribbon" out of cardstock - I'm sure I got that idea from somewhere, just not sure where, the scallop border from the SU slit punch and some paper piercing at the top. All very simple, but nice to have a "thinking of you" card on hand to pop in the mail when the need arises.
I was just chatting with a friend today how writing letters seems to be so rare. *HE* agreed! I thought it was quite something to hear a man say that getting a letter in the mail shows great thoughtfulness. That someone took the time & effort required to write it down and send it in the mail. He said it was far too easy now to sit and quickly send off an email, but how treasured a letter or card is. It's something that you can reread and keep... not something you'll just delete to clean up your inbox!
So... when's the last time you took some time {and effort} and physically wrote someone a letter? Give it a try this week, you'll be amazed at how much you'll bless the receiver!
Here's our menu for the next few days... a few I was able to find {and link} to the recipe online... enjoy!
