All righty folks - it's almost a weekend again! Wahoo for weekends!

If anyone has questions about supplies, let me know as I'm not going to list them tonight.

I think you must love the fall as much as I do. Such a wonderful collection of autumn cards - beautiful warm colors and patterns. I love that embossing folder you used for the one you did for the Prairie Fairy embossing challenge. I don't have that one and now I feel like in NEED it - LOL! Great job on the embossing challenge. So happy you could join in the fun with us at Fairy Fun Friday.

Melisa Waldorf said...

Holy Smokes women. You got all that done in 2 days! That's awesome. Clean and simple is the way to go! I love how you used the sunflowers as buttons off to the side! and the background is awesome. I love that little bird on the stem of the pumpkin, too cute!

I love that fall embossing folder!! I gotta get that one, how I have I missed that!
