Is it too early for fall?


Or more specifically, Halloween? There is a real nip in the air here in Florida, in fact the weather man said it would "only reach the high 80's today) so you can see how my mind would turn to fall....
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. And not because of the trick or treating, because growing up in Scotland, there was no trick or treating (we had our own version although I understand things have become more Americanized in recent years)
No, I just love the colors, the papers and the imagery, I guess. I'm drawn to all of them and own more Halloween stamp sets than one person really needs. I fully expect to add to that collection this year, because I have NO willpower.
This card was included in the Cards For Heroes package because, obviously, they need to work ahead of the major holidays so they get shipped out to the troops in plenty of time for them to mail them home. It was so easy to make - some DP (that I didn't look at the maker of before I used it all up), silver ink on the sentiment (Inkadinkadoo, I think) then finished off with MS drippy goo and bat punches.

I love Fall, the crisp air . . . although I think our definition of 'crisp' is different than your version in Florida . . . here 80s is 'hot.' Very cool card!

In my opinion, it's never too early for fall... and fall weather!

I love that border punch, and the way you mixed the patterned papers.

Very nice! I love Halloween stamps too and have way more than one person needs. But they are just so fun!

I really love fall.... the refreshing cooler air after the hot days of summer are so welcome... I open the windows and let that air in... though I'm not a big Halloween fan...I do love this dripping goo punch and fun colors! As kids we used to have so much fun on Halloween but today things are different. Love your fun card!!!
