Fall Favourites

Well, after my little rant the other day about fall... Jennie has asked me to come up with something I love about fall for the October A Muse Lounge Challenge. One thing I do love is the colours since they are so rich and there is a whole lotta' red around (and you know how much I love red). Thanks to Jennie for asking me to help out. I love challenges (as you know) and I love A Muse challenges the most!

The layout for this was inspired by Dawn McVey's card on page 72 of Paper Crafts Card Creations. Thanks for stopping by and hope you can play along with this month's A Muse Lounge Challenge. Who knows, you might even win something!

Here's an example of the wonderful rich colours of fall. These are pumpkin fields I can see from my back deck. I'm not into Hallowe'en or pumpkins but I think it's pretty cool.

(this section was added a bit later 'cause I forgot what day it was)

Here's my calendar page for October... even though I'm "not into Hallowe'en or pumpkins", A Muse has so many fun stamps for this season, I couldn't resist. Remember to download yourself an A Muse calendar, proceeds go to the very worthwhile Charley's Fund.

I must admit the beginning of a new month is not always a happy day for me because it marks another jobless month and I tend to get a little (ok, sometimes a lot) down. So instead, today, the beginning of the month of Thanksgiving (the Canadian version - don't worry my American friends, the space time continuum has not been altered), I'm going to be grateful - for my hubby, my family (several of whom I will see at Thanksgiving), my friends, the roof over my head, the food in my fridge, my healthy body and mind, and for the beautiful sunrise I saw this morning.

Have a great weekend. Be sure to stop by tomorrow to celebrate World Card Making Day with me!
