Paper Sweeties November Challenge

Did you have a good Halloween?  The weather here was rainy but we still had a few brave souls willing to brave the elements and get some treats.  They probably made out pretty good too - I know I gave them a little extra for the effort!!

Every month Paper Sweeties hosts a challenge.  It's a great way for you to see some innovative ways to use your Paper Sweeties stamps and maybe win some free stamps!   November is the busiest month of the year for me - I have so many blessings to be thankful for  including my birthday, wedding, and birth of both my children.  I love  the cooler temperatures and the colorful show of the leaves turning. 

This scarecrow is one of my favorite Paper Sweeties images - he just makes me smile.   I layered him on fancy die cut and a layer of burlap.  The colorful quilt pattern paper seemed perfect since it includes just about every fall color I can think of.

Check out what the rest of the team made to kick off the new challenge.  You have the whole month to play!  And please give a warm welcome to 
Kristi Schurr who has just joined the team! 


Have a beautiful day!!

You really captured autumn with your colors! It's so gorgeous here. I love the all too short display of autumn glory. Love the added touch of burlap and your sweet scarecrow.
