Photo Inspiraiton.

This week at Use Your Stuff, it was my turn
to host the challenge, and I picked a photo inspirational challenge.

Here's the photo, and the card I made.  I was inspired by the colors
of the photo, and the leaves.  

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted.  We bought a house, and
these past two weeks we have been selecting most everything 
from cabinets, to flooring.  I'm hoping things will die down
a bit and I can get more time in my craft room!

Here's a photo of the house:

Still lots to be done, but hopefully we'll settle the middle of Janurary!
