Happy Halloween!

I dislike Halloween. It's not one of my favorite days, although my daughter loves it. I have to say the big kids have taken over this year. While we were out they were everywhere and they were rude and pushy. I think there is a point where you are too old to go trick or treat and you should just stay home. Ok, enough of my ranting, not what I came to do.

I did come to share a card. The image is from The Stamping Boutique. The image is called Emo Alice and can be found here.

This week's challenge is to use a sentiment and for my sample I used one of the new sentiments being released.

It has been a lovely weekend and i am sad it's almost over. My family sent new pictures of my niece and nephew and I'm feeling kind of homesick, missing the kids, but... they got snow this weekend. LOL! So I guess I'm not missing them too much because I would not want to trade places with them right now. I don't miss cold, snowy weather.

Anyhoooo, I was thinking of my niece when I made this little treat bag. She is so funny and very girly, so I think she will love this. The image is from The Stamping Boutique.

Signs of Fall

Hi Friends,

It's really Autumn here now in FL. Cool in the mornings, hot during the day and cool again at nightfall. I love the fall weather.

This weekend we are going to try and find a pumpkin. Yeah, I know I'm late with that but...at least the girl will have one. I have to finish her costume too. Bad Mommy!

Anyway today's card reminds me of Fall. Caramel apples - I love them. County fairs are starting to arrive here and you can always find a caramel apple. YUM!~!!


The image is from The Stamping Boutique.

Take care.
