Chilly Weather upon us

BRRRR!!! Yesterday was positively chilly! Mowing the lawn was on my chore list- perhaps I should have held off one more day- as it was cold on the tractor! A couple weekends ago I made some beef au jus steak sandwiches- with onions- which then of course- totally put me in the mood for french onion soup!! I made some and boy oh boy oh boy was it good!! Now I'm not all fancy- really just a simple girl, so I topped my soup with a nice piece of italian bread that I had pre-toasted and I had provolone so that is what I used- instead of the gruyere that I believe is typically called for. Well, it was delicious! Perfect for a cool fall day!Next I am sharing this sweet Mother card I made. Just got out my Craft Secrets diecuts/images and pulled out one I liked, then made this card. I also used old stash the scalloped oval- that piece is from Daisy D's. I added a mulberry flower to a wide ribbon bow, topped with a brown button. I also dug out my photo corners and added them to the red paper ( bobunny St. Nick scraps) I found another scrap in the chipboard box, this white heart that I then glittered, adding my title with some old Heidi Swapp chip letters. The background paper is Dream Street .

Here is a close up of the bird image, bow and title for you to see.
Thanks for stopping in!
