Happy fall y'all

Reading the comments from yesterday's post, I have to say it looks like I'm in pretty darn good company with all you fellow paper addicts. LOL ;)
Well today is officially the first day of fall, can you feel it? I know you have already heard me pining away for the cooler weather for quite some time now but fall 2009 is shaping up to be particularly exciting for me. November is going to be especially sweet... so stay tuned. I also promise to have more fun candy giveaways coming up... just a hint, if you liked my fairies you won't want to miss out. ;)
So anyway, for today's card I thought what better way to welcome in my fave time of year than with something fun for Halloween. This was another Club Anya challenge last week, Farewell to Janna. I love, love, love the new TGF Spooktacular set and have been using them quite a bit lately. Each of the little witches are slightly altered, just drawing in some lines and patterns for more decorative hats and dresses and giving them a lap so it looks like they are sitting... pretty easy peasy and such a great way to get more mileage from your stamps.

Hi Amy, these are just adorable. I love your stuff. I think you need to design all of the WS for the greeting farm...I would buy each and everyone of them. I am sure I said this already, but it is soooo true. I love the story behind each and everyone. Have a great evening. Can't wait for tomorrow. Lisa G
