Happy Autumn II

Last night, when I should have been getting ready for bed, I was struck with the urge to make a card for my brother-in-law in New Jersey.  I liked the previous Autumn card so much, and thought it would be nice for a guy, too.   I added a a touch more to the border with some acorns.  I do wish, though, that I didn’t have to rush these so.

My brother-in-law, Mr. Big Heart, has done so much for our family, and I wanted to give him a special ‘thank you’ to let him know how much he’s appreciated and thought of.

The weather is gorgeous here!! We went from the 80’s to 51 degrees in a flash.  I love it!  Most invigorating.

I’ll be posting a new sketch (or two-I hope) which I drew to illustrate a Halloween song I wrote a few years back, so stay tuned.

Thank you for visiting Leisure Lane.  I send all of you love and good thoughts….and may “Sandy” keep the heck away from you!!

Until next time, may happy days abound!
