It's about time I made some cards...

This week has been crazy! I have had some sort of appointment every day this week. And, tomorrow is the anniversary of me coming in to this world, 36 whole years ago at 7:36 PM.

I had a squirrel try to get in the car with me today, it is my fault really, because I tried to feed him by hand yesterday and he apparently thought we were good friends now. I guess he wanted to go to my dentist appointment with me.

Well, on to the card. This card is from a tough challenge over at 365 cards day 208.
Take a challenge from the month of June, July and August and combine them into one card.
I used Day 119 from June 27th Seeing a Silhouette and put the leaves in the corner.
I used Day 153 from July 31st Tag you're it, and have the tag tied to my string.
I used Day 180 from August 27th which was Vintage images and used the ephemera I received from my friend Julie in Gig Harbor.
I also threw in a charm for Dutch Dare. There challenge today was to be Charming...
This is Russian Punch Needle and it is for The Order of the Opus Gluei. Their challenge this week was to stitch something on your card or any other project for that matter. This guy has buttons for eyes.
It is also for C.R.A.F.T., don't use any patterned background paper.
