Happy Autumn

Dear Friends,

A very dear co-worker and friend hurt her back, and will be out of work until mid November.  I’ll miss her very much as she and I keep each other uplifted and encouraged.  Though I speak with her at least once every day, I decided to send her card surprises in the mail to cheer her.  Today I made the first card.

Some years ago I did some ‘doodling’ with watercolor and made small pictures with some fun designs.  I used one of the design ideas for this card.

Painting a similar pumpkin on the envelope added a special touch.

Inside reads:

Just a little note to say…
hope you have a pleasant day!

And I hope all of you have a pleasant day, too.  Thank you for visiting me here on Leisure Lane.

Until next next time, many a Happy Autumn abound!

    Hi, Marianne,
    Your friend will love her card for sure. It will really brighten up her day. Your art work is amazing, my friend. I so admire anyone who does watercolors. I took a watercolor course in college. I enjoyed the course mainly because I was in with some real artists who did beautiful work. Are you having cool weather there in your part of Texas. We sure are here in Central Texas. Yea!! I love the autumn weather. Sending love and hugs to you~Vicki
