Hi there! I hope you are having a great week! Today I have a few Fall inspired projects to share.
I'm not a big fan of the color orange so I painted the decorative pumpkin using a shade of blue chalk paint followed with an application of dark wax:
Both the tag and card were created using a combination of PTI stamps, My Favorite Things/Die-namics, Spellbinders and Sizzix dies:
It's been years since I inked up the fun Halloween set from PTI ~ an oldie but a goldie:
I went with the chalkboard technique for the sentiment tags: 
Here's a pumpkin that Angie painted using a shade of gray chalk paint :)
Also topped off with a chalkboard technique sentiment tag:







For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by - I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)
