Hey Ya'll!

Happy November! I truly love this season - the change in temps, the slight crisp feel in the air and the promise of all the wonderful things coming up in the next few holidays!  I'm so far behind in my blogging .... and crafting :x   Life has just jumped up 100% into busy mode ;)  I hope you had a marvelous Halloween! We enjoyed the rain stopping just in time to take the kids out in the neighborhood and quite a haul they brought home - 3/4 of it to be donated.  And our church Harvest Festival was so much fun - my littlest daughter won the "Guess the Pumpkin Weight" and brought home a 32.4 pounder!  Too fun!





 Speaking of Harvest, it's time for another bi-weekly challenge at Riley and Company!  This challenge is old is new again -- use any Riley stamp that is at least a year old.  I chose to use Wheat Riley since he fit the season at hand, not to mention he is as cute as can be with his overalls and bit of wheat he's chewing on ;)  I paired him with this MME paper since I had it handy from another recent card and made it work - added some flowers from a recent Tuesday Morning haul and of course, had to do my card on the inside in the same theme .... I had to ROFL when I saw my finished card .... I started singing "Oh Susannah", lol! :)-


You can link up your cards on the Riley Challenge blog and also see all the fabby creations from the DT .....  take a peek here!  Once you have created your card/project come back here and place a comment with a link to your card/project to this post so that we can see what you created. If you upload your card/project to SCS don't forget to include the keyword RILEY2211.

Thanks for stopping by -
Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

Glad you all had a great Halloween, I agree on the busy time now, my studies have sure increased big time, but at least I am pretty much done with Xmas shopping now just need to wrap.

    I'm beyond behind in my blogging as well (so I hope you realize my absence is absolute NOTHING personal!!). It's good to be busy but sometimes I feel a little less on my plate would be heaven! So glad you are well, Kelly.
