Aah, September, how we love you. You beckon the fall, remind us of pumpkin pie, mums, and leaves that swirl and dance with the tiniest of snowflakes. Oh wait, it also signals family moves! Just ask any military family (she smiles). I remember one such move. Our tiny Volkswagon blew a clutch in the mountains of upstate New York one fall day. A cross-country trip to the next duty station now delayed. Not to worry -- Larry, Larry, and Larry showed up with a flat bed truck to transport our little car to the nearest town. My eye surveyed the area with the keen vision of a mother eagle. I spy a lack of seating room in the cab of the truck - where will my little brood sit? Why in the car of course!
Family of four inside a Volkswagon Bug;
On top of a flat bed truck traveling through the mountains of New York;
As my children laughed with delight, I vaguely remember the words spoken by one of the Larry's, "Life's a journey my friend, enjoy the ride!"
My focal image (the packed boxes) was small therefore I chose to place it higher on the slanted panel. I also included another image from this stamp set at the bottom of the design. I wish the sentiment was just a little larger, even so, the card remains balanced and still allows for a nice clean appearance.
Enjoy the ride today.
