Fall Fun

Fall Fun

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Fall is my favorite season of the year. I love the cool, crisp temperatures and the changing colors of the leaves.  I love decorating the house with gourds and pumpkins. I love sitting beside the fire, sipping hot apple cider and nibbling on a powdered sugar donut.  I love cheering on my favorite football team. I love seeing the neighborhood children dressed in their Halloween finery.  I LOVE Fall, and today’s card highlights some of my favorite things.

Gourds, pumpkins, and colorful leaves, fussy-cut from Rustic Harvest designer series paper, grace a die-cut window.  And if you look closely, you can see the silhouette of a spooky house outlined against a full harvest moon, just ready for trick-or-treaters to come bravely knocking at the door. How fun is that?
