I've Got The "Blues"

Hello All....
Isn't it hard to believe that it is already September??
I have a lot to do this month.....
Start getting my gardens cleaned out and ready for "winter"
That is so hard to even think about.....
I wash the logs inside the house every Sept and April...
sounds weird, doesn't it...but we live in a "truly" log cabin...
and the dust and spiders love the logs!!
 
So anywho, I saw the layout for this card on Pinterest"
and loved the design of it...
I wish I could remember whose it was...
I changed it to suit me....so it a bit different then the one I saw....
 
 
I love the pretty, elegance and simplicity of it...
and the soft colors as well.....
the doily underneath is so dainty and pretty!!
I am entering this into the challenge at Papercraft Star using this inspiration photo:

Your card is so pretty!! Lovely design Diane! Thanks so much for playing along at Papercraft Star ...
Spiders ... oh my ... my son has a phobia about them ... good job he doesn't live in a log cabin ... that must be quite cosy though ...
Gardens take so much work don't they ... I really don't have the body strength I used to and I need a lot of work doing on mine ... so much has overgrown but getting a gardener here to help is nigh on impossible! DH doesn't help ... Have a lovely day!

Oh Diane this is so beautiful!!! What a fabulous way to use that fanciful flourish! Gorgeous!
And yes, it's very hard to believe we are in September all ready! I was outside doing a little 'garden work' last evening and although the temp was pleasant ... I just had to look around to see how many more evenings I will need to be out there before that white stuff starts floating around! Thanks for inspiring me not only in your crafting but your 'outdoors' push! Your gardens are BEAUTIFUL and I figure if you can do it ... I can do it!! (Tee Hee! We'll see!)
