a little more tricks and treats

Here's another Halloween treat from The {Stamps} of Life! It's hard to tell from my photo, but I put Stickles on the leaves of this card too. It gives the perfect little pop. The rhinestone brad is from Chatterbox, and the patterned papers are SEI Eerie Alley (can you tell I am loving this paper, lately!? And I have a whole pack of it to use up, while I am in the Halloween mood!!)

So it's still ridiculously hot here, and NOT feeling at all like FALL. I am doing my best, by drinking Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and making pumpkin cookies (two batches so far!!) We are taking the kiddos to the pumpkin patch tomorrow, at one of the local churches. Maybe one day we will live somewhere that they actually GROW pumpkins locally, and "going to the pumpkin patch" actually means picking a pumpkin from the vine, but for now it just means a church's grassy yard and a truckload of pumpkins that have been delivered. It's always a great photo op though (even though we will all be hot, sweaty, and in shorts for this years photos!)

I hope you are having a GREAT week!!! The weekend is almost here! :)

Laura: Cute card. And I agree with you about this heat. It's way too late in the year for this, isn't it? Stop by my blog when you get a chance. I left something there for you.
