Cloud 9 October Blog Hop

Life has just been so busy that I have not had too much time to be crafty and I just hate it...I just can't seem to put my finger on it either so I can't make any excuses. Just life and family...we did have a busy weekend, Friday night Ashleigh and I went to see Florence and the Machine, Saturday Dwight and I went to the San Francisco Giant's post season game and Sunday back to San Francisco to see the Blue Angles and dinner with friends, I had a blast but was really looking forward to going back to work to relax and find some crafty time.
Anyway, back to why I am posting...I am so excited because this is the first month I have been able to play along with this new challenge blog for WPlus9 stamps. I only have 3 sets and unfortunately nothing to go along with this months theme, but I have a sweet friend Renee who I think must have had ESP or something because she sent me this envelope jam packed with all kinds of wonderful WP9 fall goodies! Renee, you are just the best, thank you again.  I had a few minutes this morning and decided I needed to get this card made and really that was all it took.  Thank you so much for taking a peek!

  13. Kim! You've been busy! It all looks like fun! Your card is adorable and I am glad that Renee came through. Just FYI, you can always make a card using what you already have and just go off the colors in the photo. But I am SO glad to see that you joined us this month! Thank you!!!

    You guys are so with it - can't believe you dealt with all that traffic over Gridlock Weekend to see the Giants and Blue Angels. Mister is so crowd-averse! I'm sad the A's didn't go all the way, but whoo-whoo, go Giants!!
