Hello friends.  We are having such moderate temps here for this time of the year that the plants that we cut down in the yard at the end of the season are confused, as well as the fish in the pond who want to be fed!!!  But, hey, it beats shoveling snow, right?

This is such a stressful time of the year, we want to do it all and there never seems to be enough time.
After decorating some yesterday, I needed some coloring therapy so I went to my stamp cave and made this card.

Love these Penny Black stamps!

Coloring therapy is the best ever! Love your adorable card, Sue! We're also enjoying some crazy temps - mostly in the 40's and 50's. Scared to see what January and February bring! Thanks for sharing :)

Hi Sue, lovely, lovely card, I love the image and your card design.

The UK is having some serious flooding just now, especially the Lake District, seems like folk will be out of their homes for months, so heartbreaking.
Our temp is also not right for this time of year, plants still growing.
Take care, Kate x

Fab card.

We are also having temps warmer than normal for this time of year.

Hope you have a good day. Sue

A gorgeous card Sue, such a fabulous image and sentiment.
We have daffodils in flower at the bottom of our garden - it's so warm they think it's spring.

Sue, your coloring made this PB stamp become beautiful! Such a lovely sentiment, and gorgeous card design - but it is the colors in the image which really make this creation a masterpiece!

We, too, have unseasonable temps. Today was "normalish" with low humidity, beautiful sunshine all day, low at 46 and high at 73 - perfect weather in every way - but like you, our Autumn has been unseasonably warm, and the plants and insects are very confused.

Hope your week is extra special! hugs, de

I love this card and the way you colored it. The sentiment is ideal and the verse inside I remember reading some years ago. Just an all around great card. There is a Santa Claus in every family. My Dad used to tell me that and I really believe it to this day. Have a great (warm) evening. This weather is something isn't it? I'll take it but Hubby is waiting for some snow so he can snow blow the neighborhood. Keeps him busy. LOL

Aww Sue...this is certainly a classic! Love your design and that sentiment stamp is awesome!

Thanks for joining the December Penny Black Saturday Challenge. I hope you join our newest challenge that just posted!
