Sunflowers and winners!

Hello, hello!

Well it's that time again... time to announce the winners of the Sweet November Fiendish Friends September release! So without further ado the six lucky ladies are... dadadadadadadada (that's a drum roll if you couldn't tell, LOL!) ;)

Thurston the vampire goes to- Beth aka BR-T
Hilda and Webster goes to- Queen B
Hilda and Luna goes to- Rachel
Joe Joe the werewolf goes to- angie ashuk
Hilda and Vlad goes to- gobeagirl
Mumford the mummy goes to- Cindy H

Big congrats to all the winners! Be sure to email me at pete_danger @ with your mailing addys and I will get your candies sent out asap! :)
And thanks again to everyone who took the time to play along this past week. If your name wasn't drawn this time, don't get discouraged... there's sure to be some wee Christmas candies popping up before ya know it... ;)

But that's not all that I've got for today... the All That Scraps September previews are actually just starting up today over on the ATS blog with even more chances to win all of the stamps being released this month. So be sure to go check that out and get your name in the prize drawings! :)

My card today features the adorable new Sunflower Lula from CC Designs. I think she looks like she is dressed in her Sunday best, taking the last of the season's sunflowers to her best friend. With the days getting shorter this time of year, who couldn't use a bit of sunshine in a vase to brighten up the home? :)
I paired Lula with the awesome new Apple Cheddar papers by Jillibean Soup. Growing up in apple country I'm kind of a sucker for cute apple motifs so I couldn't resist digging into this pad as soon as it arrived. It's amazing how smells can mark the seasons just as much as anything tangible because just like the smell of apple blossoms bring to mind a spring breeze there is a definite scent in the fall that is a bit harder to describe. It is part ripe apples and part diesel trucks and tractors bringing in the harvest. As crazy as this may sound it is one of my favorite smells... the only thing more fallish to me is probably a wood burning stove filled to the brim with sweet apple wood. Mmmmm... can I start pulling out my sweaters yet? ;)

Ok, that was quite the tangent to get off on, LOL! Anywho, hop on over to the ATS blog to see all of today's featured preview stamps and some wonderful cards by the DT.
