Love Is

Happy September!  It's most definitely the start of fall here with crisp, cool evenings and the odd patch of yellow leaves on the trees.
I'll give you a bit of an update on how the reno and move is going.  Slow.  hahhahah... we worked our buns off this past weekend and are nearly finished painting.  I will be so glad when the last room is finished and I swear, I am never, ever painting again.  Too old and too fat for that!  But it's all for a good goal because once we are finished and the second week of November rolls around, I am retiring from my job and we are moving to the city.
Today's card uses one of those sweet All Dressed Up digis and the name of these two cuties is Love Is.  I've actually had this card done since February and am finally getting around to posting it.  In case you hadn't heard, All Dressed Up is having a DT call and a competition where you can win some images so be sure to check that out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Image - All Dressed Up Love Is
Sentiment - PTI Tiny Tags 2
Dies - Taylored Expressions Cloud Duo, Lil Inker Stitched Circles
Paper - Authetique 'Faith' collection
Challenges:

So lovely to see you again Marilyn - this card is gorgeous!! Beautifully coloured and the total card design is so 'you'.
I would never move to a city - I can't stand them, I am so much a small town girl!!

Precious card, Marilyn! So happy to hear that the renos are coming to an end! You'll be so happy then!

Such sweetness in the soft colors, and both little friends hanging out on a limb together - to catch each other, right? Love the sentiments in the clouds! hugs, de

A super cute image that you've colored up beautifully. I understand how hard it is to renovate. We finished up 7 months of work on ours only to put in on the market just as it as slowed down to a snail's pace. We did most of the work ourselves too and it has just about killed us!

Painting is a big job and you discover those muscles you never knew you had..ouch! I know you will love retirement and so this time will be worth it. (I love retirement!) Love your cute card, But I had to laugh as the 'out on a limb' thought came to mind. Must be how you are feeling with all the changes. Great card!

I have been out of the loop lately - I think I have gone quite mad!!
Oh dear - I have missed something -- the second week of November will be here before you know it! Bravo!!!!
