Waltzing into Fall!

I am trying so very hard to get into the spirit of  Fall and "Trick or Treat", but when the temperatures here are looming way over 100, it's really difficult. But I'm also reading that most of the country is experiencing above average temperatures, so I feel a bit better as I sit here in Phoenix sweating my you-know-what off!

I loved the sketch over at Waltzing Mouse this week, and had to make it a Fall card! I've been dying to use these little pumpkins that come with the
"Bountiful Baskets Additions" set, but decided to go without the basket this time.

Feeling cooler already.....

OK, now I think I'm really ready for Halloween and pumpkin pie, and candy corn....

I love that the Spellbinders Labels Eighteen and the coordinating
Vintage Labels 18 from Waltzing Mouse are so easy to work with!
I used my new Cosmo Cricket, "Odds and Ends" paper pack,
a bit of embossing and inking, a few black pearls from Recollections,
and some jute twine and done!  I wanted to add some natural texture that the "garden" could be growing in...and it was so much easier to stamp the pumpkins onto
pattern paper than to color with the Copics today (hands just not cooporating).

Thanks for looking today! It would REALLY make my day if you left a comment!
