{happy fall}

Happy Fall, friends!  Around Michigan the leaves are turning lovely shades of orange, red and yellow. The cider mills are serving up sweet cider and warm donuts and, of course, Halloween will be here before you know it.  Do you decorate for Halloween?  I have a few things out and I love the new scented candles I found at Target.  They are layered with 3 scents; pumpkin nutmeg, cinnamin ginger and bonfire nights.  They are by Nature's Wick and when lit, the wick crackles like a fire.  So cool.

I have to admit, with the arrival of my favorite season, my mojo disappeared.  I think it might have taken a trip to Australia.  Liz, if you happen to find it please send it back my way!  ;)   I don't think Ive ever gone through a spell that lasted this long.  Ive had the time, I even forced (laugh) myself to buy some new goodies, but nothing is really helping.  I'm pretty sure the act of creating will help kick start my mojo, so I did manage a few cards this week.   Truth be told, they don't excite me, but at least I'm back at it.  Indulge me for a post and I promise it will get better.  :)

Best Wishes

This is for my October Challenge at My Sketch World, to make a card with Halloween colors (green, purple, orange and black) but not be Halloween themed.  There is a great new layout sketch and some awesome challenges this month, come join us! 


I found that ghosty boarder punch at Michael's on clearance a couple weeks ago.  I used a zipper to imitate a fence top for the ghosts to be peeking over.  :)  

Happy Halloween

I made this for The Paper Variety's "Forest Friends" challenge. 
I adore these My Mind's Eye papers and of course, the SRM stickers!  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Let me know what you do when your mojo disappears!

  7. hey! I have a candle just like that!!! At first, the "crackle" gave me pause...I didn't want my house to burn down...but now I know it's okay. ;) :) Your cards are all so cute - but I especially love the last one. That MME paper makes me wish my LSS was still open!! :)

  8. So nice to see you up here friend! I think you are being a little harsh on your lovely creations above. I'm particularly in love with that ghost punch border card.
    Love fall scented candles - I will definitely be on the look out for that one next time I'm in the big T.


If you want to be happy, be.
