A couple of city blocks are closed to traffic each year for the Fall Festival. Businesses hold sidewalk sales, and crafters are invited to set up tables for a fee, and their items.
DD is working to get into freelance photography, and set up a table with her black and white cards and framed prints, AND with her whole grain chocolate chunk cookies. MMMmmmm...... She asked me to go along and help her take care of business. Well..... "business" was SO much fun! It ended up for me, being mostly a visit with friends! If you can believe it, I am very sunburned! Anyway, basically, business was the usual craft sale - most folks just wandering around, enjoying the day, but some were buying. She sold enough to be able to go into St. Louis tonight for a girl's night out, and has potential comissioning of several large orders for a few folks. She had her camera with her, and was asked to shoot some 'on the spot' photo's of one woman's granddaughter, as well.
The day was a lot of fun...saw many cute babies and lots of darling dogs, one of which even sported a pink satin, sequinned DRESS! lol Just about 2:15 p.m., a huge thundercloud shown overhead, and within about 5 minutes (just enough time to put things away!) we were pretty wet. The band that was playing included a young man we knew, so we jumped in to help put electrical type gadgets, etc., in their trailer, and within the next few minutes, we were soaked through to our under-roos! We laughed - neither of us have played in the rain in ages, and a good laugh was just what the doc ordered for DD...
This first card is an adorable image by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. It was a free digital image that I grabbed (yup Cat, another one!), and I used the S&S Sketch to create this card. The sketch had a spin...we had to use any shade of red, black, and tan. So, I jumped into my 'stash' of scraps, and found enough of all three colors to get this card made! I think this image is adorable, and I like the way the card turned out!

What lies at the bottom of the ocean and twitches?
A nervous wreck!
