Trug'in Along

There are only two more Farmer's Market weekends! Sad! It is the best way to start the weekend. Got inspired by all the fall fruits and veggies at the market yesterday so decided to work on a market/autumn card as my weekend comes to a close.

October is also the month for the Feast of St. Francis. I work at a Franciscan university so to quote one of the students, "it's like a holiday except for not having the day off!" Check out the president of the college being a good sport on the bicycle powered smoothie maker! It was part of the St. Francis celebration on Friday that followed a beautiful mass with dancers and full choir. A couple of the 'sisters' (Franciscan nuns) played along too by putting in some pedal time! It is a lovely school - like us on Facebook! (In an effort of full disclosure - I am one of the two member team who maintain the Briar Cliff University Facebook is SO much fun!)

Please ignore the little clothespins...never sure how to photograph the inside of cards that open vertically... And the rust color of the front side plaid - really did NOT photo as rust at all. Use your imagination...
