I was skimming the calendar today and realized that from the beginning of July to this past Labour Day weekend, we have been away from home - short jaunts, long journeys - every. single. week. And I wonder why I'm feeling a little bit exhausted? *Hello*! Actually, given that each trip was remarkable in some fashion, this 'staying put' for bit is...well, kind of weird. That will change quickly though, as after this weekend, we'll be out and about again. Cyclo-cross season (more bike races), a weekend of 'bike race' school (at least it's being held where my mom lives, but writing a test is involved. Yikes!), Thanksgiving and so on and so forth. It's all good. Really good.
Today's card is inspired by the very cool 'marathon' of challenges over at Sovushka Slavia, where, for the next few weeks, we're invited to create a series of cards that meet a set of 'assignment' requirements. Given I'm a teacher, how could I 'not' heed this opportunity to play student?
The first assignment: SOVUSHKA SLAVIA~Autum CASMarathan: Phase I-Literature, where we're to create a card inspired by autumn poetry.
I reckon you're not surprised by the haiku I found....so lovely:
Whirling through the grove,
Dancing in the changing winds:

My 'pirouetting' leaves are from my new Butterfly Birthdays set, designed by ultra-talented, wonderfully sweet, Kylie, coloured with my Chameleon pens and paired with a word die from Winnie And Walter:
These butterflies are oh-my-awesome! Love, love and love them...and I still have two more to play with!
Hopefully, my poem and card are a CAS 'homework' fit that will make the "teachers" smile...
I'm also heading off to the galleries at
ETA: I "thought" I had added my card to Happy Little Stampers September CAS Challenge~Colouring, but apparently note! I am know - and thank you, Loll, for the 'reminder'!
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
