Could it be that in yesterday's post I was praising what remains of summer with my watermelon card and today I'm advocating fall? Yup, it's true. You know anything is possible with me friends, right? I'm the girl who will be like, "oh, it's too early for Christmas cards on October 8th" and by October 9th I've got ten for ya! (Hint, hint, you might be seeing those kinda cards WAY before October 8. . . )
I can't explain how my mind works. . .
I won't even begin to try.
Like last night, when I saw this color combo from Create with Connie and Mary, what made my brain be like "leaves!" I see leaves! I see dead people. (No, I really do). Inside joke. Do you think like that? How does your mind work? Do see colors and try to find matching paper first? Or, do you find a stamp set to work with those colors? I'm curious. . .
As it turns out, I think these three hues make for a lovely fall color combination. Oh, how I wish the Japanese Maple in my backyard was more Blackberry Bliss than it is Old Olive. It's supposed to be, but some phyto-chemical-nutrient imbalance-chlorophyl thingy makes it more green than deep, dark purple.
Yes, phyto-chemical-nutrient imbalance-chlorophyl thingy is a very scientific term.
One quick click (say that three times fast!) card recipe of products used to make this card:
I also want to share with you friends, a very cool You Tube video of my brother's Marine EOD (Explosive Ordinance) Unit on a training mission in Australia. In normal people speak, that means he diffuses bombs for a living. Yeah, I know, right? How crazy is that! I'm such a proud big sis, and want to share 5 minutes of my own hero with you in this clip.
P.S. - Matt is the tall, thin bald dude with an arm sleeve tattoo who gives the "hang ten" handsignal in one slide. He is also the one on bended knee looking at the timer on his wrist in a still photo. Or, as I've been told, he is the bald version of Crystal!
Hmmmm, guess now I'd know what I'd look like if I shaved my head! Hashtag ain't gonna happen!
You rock, Matt!
