This week officially ends summer with the first day of autumn on Tuesday. You wouldn't know it here! You would think summer was just at it's peak! We had a very comfortable 80 degrees in my backyard, it was perfect! That's Humboldt County for you, September is always a beautiful month and for a couple of weeks in October it should be crisp in the morning but very warm in the afternoon and early evening. Traditionally around here we've called it Indian Summer (I suppose that is politically incorrect... oh well...I hate politics!) All I know is that we had a gorgeous day, thank you LORD!! And the Forty-niners won, wow that's two games in a row! Football season, leaves are turning, yup...fall is in the air!! Which brings me to our fabulous Color Monday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts. Heather has chosen some great colors to start the week off and this is what she has said:
"I am feeling in the mood for fall and I wanted to share with you typical fall colors mixed with a little tempting turquoise for a twist. So your colors this week are:
Close to Cocoa
Hope you all play and I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Don't forget to upload using the keyword CM23 and when uploading to your blog or other online galleries, please use keyword CPC-CM23."
Those are going to be some great colors to work with! If you have a minute you should hop on over to the Stampin' Sisters for Christ blog, their challenge this week is a fall themed card so you could upload at both sites! They are giving away a stamp set from Korin Sutherland who owns Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Korin has an incredible Design Team be sure and check out her blog HERE. You'll find lots of wonderful inspiration!
Speaking of inspiration, we watched a Louis Giglio DVD this evening called "Fruitcake and Ice Cream" if you have a chance be sure and watch it! It will definitely minister to you as you see the hand of God working in lives that you wouldn't expect. Fruitcake and ice cream may have to be a title on one of my future scrapbook pages! I've heard of being a Jesus Freak but how about a Fruitcake for Christ!! You have to watch the DVD... Fruitcake was the nickname of a person in a journal. It's not being a looney tune weirdo for Christ, I promise!! Watch the DVD!
I have come that they may have life and have it in abundance. John 10:10
