Happy Autumn

This has been a pretty beautiful first weekend of autumn. I even made apple cider... can it get more New England than that?!
apple cider!

Threw all the apples in the pot with some water, brown sugar, and a lot of chai tea bags... wait 3 hours and mmmmm Happy Fall!

The CAS-ual Fridays challenge to create a clean and simple card that celebrates autumn. This includes one of my many fall/halloween cards made in one, very long, sitting (like the batty card from yesterday)

So I found a very very cute Halloween stack at Michael's. It's a Recollections stack called "Night and Fall" with lots of cute images and patterns. The tree here was paper pieced with Jillibean Soup papers and Paper Smooches "Spring Groves" stamp. Last but not least, adorable Martha Stewart halloween washi tape.

I hope you're watching the Emmy's tonight! Heidi Klum looks gooorrrggg (duh)
