Color Blog Hop -- November 11, 2015

Happy Veteran's Day everyone.  Be sure to thank a vet for all he/she has done for you.  I have my own personal vet to whom I am married.  I thank him all the time for what he did -- and for what he still does for me.  When I hear his stories, I hope I at least begin to understand what he and all the other vets have gone through, and continue to go through.

So, you are back for another color blog hop.  We have a little more fall here.  I think the inspiration piece is made up of leaves someone retrieved from our yard.  I tell you, with hundreds of trees on our property, we have a gazillion leaves.  My poor hubby thought he got a jump on leaves a week or so ago and cleared the drive, lawn and under and around bushes and flower beds.  The next day when I returned home from doing my errands in "the big city," there were so many leaves in the driveway that it looked like a shovel was needed.  Oh, and our driveway is a very, very, long driveway.  So, he got out there with the leaf blower and did it all again.  His comment was, "At least I got the wet ones so they don't stick and make it more difficult the next go 'round.  Hmmmmm......about 3 days later he sighed, and did it yet again.  Well, I hate to say it, but as long as I keep him away from the windows, perhaps he will get a few days' rest.  I fear he will have to do it one more time.   I think a good back rub is in order!

Here is my card for this week.   Hmmm.....I think the setting on my camera needs to be adjusted.  Even though the setting was for close-up, you can't see the stripe embossing on the Crumb Cake piece.  The color is Crumb Cake even though it looks rather gray.  I will try to do better next time.

Thank you for coming to visit and for hopping with me.  You probably came from Liz's blogsite, and now you should continue to Robbie's blogsite.

Have a great day!
