A Blue Autumn

I made this card yesterday when I was feeling productive, creative, and having a wonderful day. I had all kinds of fun things to share with you about our super Saturday, but ran out of time before bedtime to blog about it. Sadly, I'm feeling super tired today and kinda cruddy, so this will be a just a short post.

Pretty leaves and I love the colors! I have some of that DSP hanging around. I'll have to remember these colors to use with it. Sorry you're not feeling tops. Get some rest and hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for you.
