1. Well, here we are at the end of summer.... Sigh...
It's always hard to see my favourite season come to an end.
It was a fun couple of months, that's for sure...
2. Our Corn & Apple Festival was last week...
We took Lucy to the parade (we've been dog watching her for a couple of weeks
and will be sad when her owners arrive later today to pick her up!)
3. Our favourite comedian came to perform at the Corn & Apple Festival: Matt Falk.
We've been driving to different locations to see him perform for a few years now
so it was great to have him come to our town for a show!
After Matt's show, the kids and I went on the Ferris Wheel together
and Austin took this photo.
Such fun times with my favourite people!
4. My friend, Ingrid (Lucy's owner), gave me a devotion book at the end of July
called Jesus Calling.
I wake up early, before anyone else, so I've been getting up and sitting in the rising sunshine
on my couch and reading it, along with my Bible.
I've never been good at having a "quiet time" with God, but this past month,
I've been very consistent with it and have looked forward to spending this time with Him
-- reading His Word and praying.
I came across this verse last week (Psalm 65:3) and loved it so much,
I had to highlight it in my Journaling Bible.
I stamped images from my PTI Feather Finery set in Hawaiian Shores
and Tropical Teal.
I've also been doing a devotion from Proverbs 31 along with the Jesus Calling
and found this quote to be quite inspiring, so I added it to my Journaling Bible.
I used my new PTI Stylized Autumn Leaves to embellish my quote.
5. And lastly, I have a card to share for the
I combined two brand new sets that I received in the mail recently:
Essentials by Ellen's Mondo Peony set and Concord & 9th's Barnwood Background.
I stamped my Barnwood Background stamp on white cardstock using Altenew's Evening Grey ink.
I stamped the Mondo Peony stamps on their coordinating diecuts (from watercolour paper)
in versafine onyx black and heat embossed them in clear.
I used my Zig Markers and a water bush to colour them in.
I stamped the sentiment (from PTI's Tropics) in versafine onyx black as well.
Thanks for looking!
