My Favorite Time of Year

Fall is my favorite time of year. Usually the weather is perfect - right about 75, with a cool breeze and zero humidity. But now, it's nearly October and I am still using my air conditioner, not because of the heat, but because of the humidity! It's been rainy and humid for going on 2 weeks now, and I will be a happy fall lover once again when this weather clears up and my crisp, cool autumn days return.

Until then, I hope you enjoy this card I created for The Paper Players challenge. The paper is Simply Autumn from Recollections. I used my cricut Accent Essentials to cut the scalloped circle. The trick or treat stamp came from the dollar bin at Michaels. The leaf stamp was a donation for my church's card club, and since we need 50 fall-themed cards for our trunk-or-treat event, I thought I would put it to good use. I stamped the image 3 times using 3 different colors of ink. I would have preferred to use a stamp that said "Trunk or Treat" but I couldn't find one. Does anyone know where I could get a stamp like that? If so, please either leave a comment or email me.

Thanks for looking!
