It’s October and the next thing you know – Christmas will be here. I know – don’t rush you, right? I love this time of year. The only thing I don’t like is that it goes too fast. (of course till January 15, then time stops for 3 months)
My first card was based off of a card shown on the Stampin’ Up! blog. It’s a Thanksgiving/Fall card. I inked up the stamps and used a Stampin’ Spritzer to mist them with water before I stamped. Enjoy!

The second card is a case from www.stampinjill.com. I completely revamped the colors and added things here or there, but essentially the same thing. I really liked that this was a non-traditional Christmas palette.
