Four Fabulous Fall Cards!
This first card was made with the Twitterpated Level 2 paper pack.  The striped paper is pleated. The stamp set I used for the frame and writing is called True Friends and it was January's Stamp of the Month, so I'm sorry to say, you can't get it at the moment.  But you never know, it may pop up in the new Idea Book next year!  The flowers are from a stamp set that was part of one of our Constant Campaigns last year.  I know, I know, it's not fair to show you stamps you can't get, but I just love this card and there are other stamp sets you could use to get the same look, just ask me and I will guide you to some that could work!

 This card was designed by Jeanette Lynton!  I liked it so much, I made it too!  I made it with White Daisy Cardstock (CS), Twitterpated paper, and the Many Thanks stamp set.  I used Autumn Terracotta and Chocolate ink.

 I love the little owl on this card so much!  This card was made with the You're a Hoot stamp set. I used Autumn Terracotta CS and distressed it with our edge distresser and Autumn Terracotta ink.  I then used Barn Red CS and stamped the background with the leaf from the Spellbound stamp set.  The Desert Sand CS was stamped in the same ink color with the Intrinsic Backgrounds stamp set.  The owl is on Colonial White CS and I used orange rhinestones for the eyes.  I used ribbon from our Chocolate collection to tie it all together!

 This card was made with our retired textured Card Stock in New England Ivy and Pansy Purple with a bit of Sunflower thrown in!  The flower and word are from our Treasure Life stamp set.  They are both stamped in Pansy Purple ink.  The bow on the flower is made with our twill ribbon.

Sorry it's been so long since I posted last.  October is always a very crazy, busy month for me!  We have A LOT of Birthdays and plenty of activities going on to keep us going.  Also, last Wednesday the3rd, I came down with a horrible case of Strep throat, a Sinus infection and an ear infection which landed me in the hospital for a few days.  I'm home now and each day gets a little better, but it's been a rough healing process.  In fact I will be canceling my Christmas Workshop on Saturday the 13th and hopefully rescheduling it.  I will keep you posted.
I wanted to post my Halloween layouts from last year that I did with paper from Silhouette, using a sponge to give it a spooky green color.  I then used the stripes from Silhouette and the Smokey Plum from Enchanted.  I also used Autumn Terracotta CS, Black CS, and Smokey Plum CS. I used the Spooky Smiles stamp set and the October stamp set that is now retired :( I also used Spellbound and Creepy Cobwebs. It was a really fun page to make!  I really had to think "outside the box" on this one because I had already used Enchanted a couple of years in a row and I wanted a different look!  I hope this inspires you to also "think outside the box"!  Enjoy your day!
