Feeling Fall!!

Happy Thursday everyone! Can you believe the weekend is almost here again? Before ya know it it's Christmas--aHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, I'm sooooo not going to be ready, lol! My to-do list is long, my craft list is long & the holiday parties list is too long!! Not to mention the boxes & boxes of holiday decorations I have to put up--remember I put up 8 Xmas trees every year & this year I might add another one (hmmm...we'll see)--I think I may be CRAZY for sure, hee hee!

***BLOG CANDY ALERT--If you haven't entered for my Christmas Blog Candy yet, see the post below for all the details including how you can enter for a SECOND CHANCE candy over at my friends store Susana's Custom Art & Card Design!!***

I wanted to share a couple of pictures of my kiddos dressed up for Halloween this past Friday. My son wanted to be a 40's gangsta (a la Bonnie & Clyde) & that is a FAKE cigarette & gun from the party store so don't worry, lol! My daughter was a woodland fairy & thankfully the weather wasn't too cold for this outfit this year :o)

They got oodles of candy, but we're going to donate most of it to some local nursing homes. We're not big candy eaters here and I hate for it to go to waste (but I do love those Tootsie Rolls, lol)! My Halloween decorations are put away, Thanksgiving wreath is up & Christmas is soon on the way!!

Speaking of fall, I wanted to share a card I made using some new Magnolia Stamps that I got from Diana at Magnolia-licious. Diana is having a 30% off sale off of alot of the fall stamps & some others thru Nov. 8th so get over there and check it out before they're all gone! I had to have this Edwin cuz' I think he is such a cutie in his lil' overalls and I thought these mushrooms were so whimsical looking. Everything was colored w/ my Copics and I added diamond glaze to the mushroom caps. The dp is new from Basic Grey's "Granola" paper pad--perfect for those boy/masculine cards that we all need from time to time. I paper pierced the edges and then inked up the edges of the cream cs w/ some brown ink. The sentiment is from PTI's "Limitless Labels" and those are silver & gold Robin's Nest dew drops around the circle.

My last card today uses a stamp from The Stampin' Place called "Snowman & Critters Frame" & I was so drawn to it because (1) I LOVE snowmen and (2) I loved how the animals were illustrated & I knew it would be fun to color! Make sure and check out all their stamps & supplies, not only because they're fabulous but because they're having a HUGE SALE thru Nov. 9th (25% off all stamps & 15% off all supplies)!! I colored this with my Copics again and paired it up with this fun dp by MME "tres jolie"--love red & aqua together. I used my CB embossing folder on the base and added some highlights to it w/ my Inkssentials pen. I double-upped my ribbons and added some stickles to the snowflakes and snowman! I love it, whatcha' think?

Ok, I have a few gift projects to share with you all tomorrow if I can get everything done in time. BTW, have you seen all the new Stickles (Glitz & Distress)--they are FAB-U-LOUS & you can get them here! I'll show you some things made with them tomorrow! Have a great Thursday! Until tomorrow...
