Latte and Leaves

Wouldn't it be lovely if pumpkin spice lattes just floated down with the leaves every fall?

Always fun to participate in a Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

Global Design Project has a wonderful fresh and fall-y color challenge this week!

I based my layout on the sketch at Fab Friday this week.

Pick Your Potion......FMS306

Well I certainly need a magic potion today to make this pesky head cold go away!  I've tried various potions over the past 24 hours and nothing has worked very well yet.  Hoping Alka Seltzer Cold medicine does the trick tonight so I can sleep. But before I mix it up I thought I would mention a few things that you probably should keep to yourself when talking to someone whose eyes and nose are running like faucets..........

1.  "Oh Emma's only lasted a couple days....she's fine."  (Kindergarten germs are deadly for Grandmas.....)

2.  "Stop blowing your nose it will get sore." (Too late....and do I really have a choice?)

3.  "Are you sure it isn't allergies?"  followed by a saga of personal allergy problems.  (At my age I'm sure but thanks for sharing.)

4.  "Amma you need to sneeze into your elbow like this!"  (Seriously who dreamed that up?  I'd need to drape my arm like a waiter at this stage.)

5.  And my personal favorite......."What's for dinner?" 

Jen Mitchell, my talented friend from New England, has a great sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches! Play along!

Stamp Review Crew: Merry Cafe

The Stamp Review Crew is featuring Merry Cafe this week. It's an adorable set that can be used for fall or winter......and the framelits for Coffee Cafe work perfectly with this set as well.  Summer is winding down here so it is almost time to take out my "to go " cups and stack them on the counter as I did on my card. In the winter I always take a cup of tea or hot chocolate with me as I head out the door for my morning errands!  

But in the meantime we are enjoying delightful Indian Summer weather!

If you missed a stop at my friend Heidi Baks' blog head on back to see what wonderful treats she has in store!

But if you are on track then head onward to my friend Mike Funke's blog - he always has something creative to share!
