One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

I know this sounds crazy, but I love the shorter days and longer nights!  I love the wind and rain...maybe because then I don't have to feel guilty about being inside my craft room making things!!

This is some Recollections canvas that I picked up at Michael's quite awhile ago.  I stamped the pumpkins and actually colored lightly with copics.  It did bleed a little bit, but I like how it adds some depth to the pumpkin...I also did a little masking!  You can go HERE to play along with this challenge.
