Humble flowers

Hello dearies!  I must humbly ask for your forgiveness as I did not mean to be absent so long!  With vacations over I was just getting back to some normal crafting and our neighbors lost their business (auto repair) in a horrible fire last Friday, Aug 11.  He had gone in the house when an errant spark set it ablaze at about 8:00 am.  When explosions followed I tried to run further away and fell like a ton of bricks.  Needed help to get up and besides my pride, I hurt my leg pretty badly.  I'm trying hard to feel better and am still considering seeing a doctor, though I don't think anything is broken. The pain is getting in the way of much of what I want to do!
'nuff said on that!
Our neighbor has been dealing with insurance adjusters since, but is looking to the future now! We certainly wish them well and are so grateful for our quick acting volunteer fire department!

Anyway.... Here is a card I recently made using Autumn Abundance from Papertrey Ink. I colored up several of this image at once so I can put a few cards together quite quickly. I'm ALWAYS late with my cards, it seems!
The card base is kraft, with a layer of Summer Starfruit.  The dp is from Crate Paper's 6x6 pad called Farmhouse. The die is from Maryanne D and cut in Pool Party.

I hope your August has been great so far! Have a wonderful day!!
Hugs, Cheryl
