Mums, Doilies....

and a few weekend pics!
Hello, friends! I thought I would post earlier today, but you know how that can go! Here is one of a set of 4 cards that I made for my friend, Alice. It is a VERY late birthday gift! She is our Art Teacher at school and gave me some of the most elegant doilies I have ever seen! I used a Papertrey Ink set from last year and Bo Bunny paper with Papertrey Linen card stock and Brilliant blue (no one's favorite color from the past!) The cards are all different so I will be showing you the others during the week (I hope!)

It was so nice here Saturday am that Dave and I decided to head out on a day trip! We went to the North this time, all the way to Lake Ontario~ there is a haunted winery there called Marjim Manor, formerly Appleton Hall (which I think sounds spookier!) They have mostly fruit wines, but it is worth the trip to do a little tasting and listen to the ghost stories!
We walked out behind the Manor through the alley of trees~this is the view as we returned! (I posted my pics backwards!)

This is the Manor House from behind, the alley of trees is to the left. Are those ghosts or just shadows? Hmmmm...

This is the view as we started through the trees. There is a pond with a small house back there. In the distance you can see Lake Ontario. In the foreground is one of the resident cats. Fluffy and friendly and not scary at all!
On the way home we called my niece (who is a grad student at Canisus) and took her to lunch at My Tomato Pie (YUM!) and then we just HAD to stop at my favorite LSS-Buffalo Stamps N Stuff for some retail therapy and inspiration. Waving HI to Debbie and Marty! Two fun and talented gals!
It was a really great day!
I hope your weekend was one to remember!
Thanks for stopping! I'll announce the winner of the wine box tomorrow when I HOPE to have a Magnolia card to post!
Hugs, Cheryl
