Mmm, fall is delicious and smells SO good. Caramel, apples, pumpkin spice- I love these things.
Lawn Fawn Caramel Apple stamp set with matching dies and large stitched apple die were used along with beige card stock and an unknown piece of designer paper from my stack of pre-cut 6x6 pages. I had ridiculous amounts of paper so I cut a bunch of it for gifting and some for myself. Working on my craft room is always a work in progress... Too many supplies and not enough time.
This card was made for the LAWNFAWNATICS mood board challenge and the Splitcoast daily to use fruit.

Fall is in the air so it is officially autumn, Halloween, and Thanksgiving card time!
This was made using Tim Holtz distress oxide inks with Brushos color crystals for backgrounds. Sprayed sky with Nuvo silver mica mist. Martha Stewart punch for grass, Tim Holtz Gothic Boo Bigz die, retired PSX pumpkin stamps that I just adore and will hold on to forever. Love their little faces. Added some TH glitter to pumpkin tops for those chilly fall mornings. Bats clear acrylic stamp unknown.

It was 20 years ago on September 16th that my mother passed away. This past September 16th we laid our brother and her youngest son to rest with her and Dad. I know that Kenny is now at peace in God's loving care.
After the service all of the siblings went for a walk down memory lane. We started at our childhood home in Willingboro, NJ and walked to Corpus Christi school and church like we did so many times back in the sixties. We ran into the current owner right after we posed for the picture above and he said he has lived in the house for 40 years. Thanks for taking such beautiful care of the place all of these years. He asked us if we were the ones responsible for the little hand prints in the back porch patio that my Dad poured. Guilty! Would have loved to have seen them. We were short our youngest brother on our little journey and will always miss him. Be at peace, Kenny.
The first picture is all of us girls standing in "Dad's parking place" at Corpus Christi Church. We never parked anywhere else :)
The second picture is what is left of the original school yard where we lined up and did our calisthenics. So much of the school is exactly as it was. Even the bathroom stalls were a dark Pepto Bismol pink and the speckled tiles were the same but the speckles were mostly worn away.
