Fall is Here

Good morning and a happy weekend to you all.  We have a new challenge at Card Makin' Mamas and the theme is Fall is Here or Autumn if you live in the UK. I am not an autumn fan in fact I think it is my least favourite season, everything is dying off and the weather is turning grim.  The only redeeming feature about autumn is that it is time for Halloween!! So for my card I have used a Halloween theme:


Our sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Digi Stamps and their images are such fun!  For my card I have chosen to use Bugaboo's Make It Snappy - Happy Halloween which is available to purchase here and at the moment it is half price!! The image comes with both Happy Halloween in the sentiment box or blank so I chose to put my own sentiment in it. I have coloured with Copics.  The papers are by Fancy Pants from their Oct 31 pad.  I have used Edgeabilities for the border and MFT dies for the mini tickets and corners - which are made from orange glitter card. The button is October Afternoon and the twine is from my stash.

Thank you for looking and I hope you all have a great weekend - take care xx

This is a fab card Susan, so nice to see some pastel colours on a Halloween card for a change.
I'm so pleased you are beginning to see a little improvement in your daughter and I do hope it continues.
