A Lovely Tree

Hi everyone, I hope your weekend was wonderful! Rick and I were able to escape our duties as caregivers for my MIL last week and went away for a few days with our friends to South Carolina for our bi annual shooting trip. We shot at three different sporting clays clubs and stayed 4 days at the one we always do. A fun trip full of challenging shots, good food and friendship. I look forward to this trip so much and now can't wait until we go back in March. I am now trying to catch up on laundry , housekeeping, and commenting along with dealing with a cold that Rick and I both caught from one of the guys.
"A Lovely Tree" is Faith's image for the progressive challenge this week at Designed 2 Delight and she is asking us to use Fall colors. A CAS card that speaks for itself, a little distressing and coloring with distress inks and the card is finished. Faith is on vacation and this challenge is running for two weeks, you have until Thursday to get your card in.  Thanks for stopping in, I will try and be by to visit as soon as I can. By the way, tomorrow is our new release day for Doodle Pantry, be sure and watch for my post.

Card Details:
Paper: Stampin' Up Not Quite Navy, Brown and dp Autumn Meadows
