Happy Halloween

Guess which candy in the picture is mine? Lol.
I bought some amazing chocolate pumpkins on a stick from a local confectioner and die cut a bunch of happy die cuts from Papertrey Ink. I tied the bottom of each with some Halloween colored bakers twine. They are so easy to make! I made about 25 of them for my co-workers and friends at work. They must be a hit because they are all gone!!!! Good thing I slipped one in my son's lunchbox this morning.
Have a happy & safe Halloween!

Happy Fall

What do I love most about fall? EVERYTHING!!!!
I love the cooler temperature, the gorgeous color of the leaves, bright orange pumpkins adorning my doorstep, and the fragrance of a cinnamon pumpkin spice candle lingering throughout my home. I also feel very crafty this time of year. Not sure why?
Lawn Fawn has not let me down with their latest fall release. Sweater Weather is the perfect stamp set for your autumn themed cards. With cute little leaves, acorn, apple, heart, and flowers . . . you can use this set year-round. Don't forget about the matching die set too. I used the tree from the die set and stamped the tiniest leaves in the set all around the tree in different colors. I distressed the edges of the Very Vanilla cardstock using the Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain.

I was looking back at some of my past posts . . . reminiscing I guess you call it. This particular post caught my eye for three reasons:

1) The card looks similar to my last post!  Love those neutrals.

2) My son looks so young!

3) He still likes to help me take pictures of my work and get in on the picture.

Enjoy your day and happy stamping!
