A message in a bottle...

Well the weather in Kentucky is just not cooperating! It is late October and the high will be 79 degrees today! Makes it a little hard to think about making Christmas cards. The mild weather is wonderful, though. I enjoy having a few more mild days to get things done in the yard and just plain play! The last few days my house had remained neglected... :-( but I have been prolific. So I thought you might want a sample of some of the things I have been up to. For those planning on doing some Copic coloring on their Christmas cards check out the final of my two cards today for some Copic color suggestions! Have a wonderful and blessed Sabbath with yours!
