Happy Haunting!!

Good Morning, Stampers!

I was shopping at one of my favorite home stores the other day and came across a small boy who was crying because all of the Halloween decorations were so scary. Poor little guy!! (some of them were creepy to me, too!) He was my inspiration to create a non-scary Halloween card. Afterall, we don't want to see the little ones spooked!

A Fall Thanks

Good Morning, Stampers!

The temperatures have been a bit on the cool side (60's) these last few days. My daughter asked if we could turn the heat on or start a fire in the fireplace (she is visiting from Phoenix - lol) Got me thinking that the leaves will probably begin to change early and sooner rather than later. Now, I am in no hurry for that to happen, but I do have to admit that the colors are just beautiful when that does happen! My card today reminds me of those colors: Cajun Craze, Tip Top Taupe and Crushed Curry. Warm with a natural feel. The new Woodland embossing folder - coming September 1st - really completes the scene!

Stamps: Vintage Leaves
Ink: Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Tip Top Taupe
Paper: Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Tip Top Taupe, Early Espresso
