This is just great! The colors are perfect. Love the sentiment stamp. So perfect for your card. I think it's wonderful that your boys get to come home for lunch. How exciting! :)

My husband and I are camping up in northern Michigan and took a drive today. We saw some of the leaves on the trees starting to turn color. Hard to believe it could be that time already. Thanks for sharing your card with us at CCC.
