Our sponsor for the month of November is The East Wind, where you will find some spectacular digis. (I will be using mine a little later in the month.) Our randomly-selected participant will win a prize of three digis! Kewl, huh? So do play along with us this month! You can use any coloring medium for your image on your project. And, again, I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
Before I get to my card, which is also a birthday card for my BIL, Ron, I will give you an update on the pool/yard. We did get the Bismarck planted on Wednesday, and it looks fabulous out there! A little lonely, but the rest of our plants are coming today, so it will soon have company. The pool interior is actually being done tomorrow, with the acid wash on Sunday. Then the fill will start, and it will really look like a pool! Our irrigation had to get postponed until Sunday, which is no big deal. And we have the Cardinals/Rams football game on Sunday. So this is going to be a wild weekend for us!!!
Gary is still having pain in his back. The CT scan showed nothing conclusive, only that there had been evidence of past stones in his kidney. No kidding. So, he is off to his urologist next Thursday, and may have to see his kidney specialist after that. But the good news is that he feels well enough to work in the yard. He dug up the old irrigation in the back, and has been moving the rock out in front. So he is not incapacitated like he was two weeks ago. We will just have to wait and see what the specialists discover. I am expecting the best...
As I mentioned above, this card is for my BIL. I have it done way in advance of his birthday, oddly enough. But the "leaves" theme fits him, as he has been working in his yard for weeks now. Doing various things, like building new vegetable gardens and brick walkways in the back. And, most recently, adding a patio area out front. So, just for Ron, I have used the Bugaboo A Kid's View Scarecrow Rake image, printed it on X-Press It BC, and colored it with my Copics and Twin Touch Brush markers:

My DP is from the Bo Bunny Autumn Song collection. It was paired with Stampin' Up CS. And my leaves were made with Spellbinders leaf dies. Pretty simple, huh?
Do stop by The Outlawz to see the fab inspiration by my talented teammates: Carla, Dawn, Kathi, and Laine! And then join in the fun, won't you?
Have a great weekend!
