What a most glorious Friday it is here in northeast Ohio! oh my goodness gracious me, the air is crisp and clean, the trees are marvelous in the colorful splendor of oranges, browns, yellows, and reds, and you can see pumpkins popping up all across front porches everywhere! What a beauty to behold! I am truly blessed to live in such an amazing area! :)

So please please play along with us!
I have made 2 samples for the challenge. My first uses the precious Orlagh that is today's Friday Freebie. Her wings have been painted with beeswax shimmerz. I used the new Basic Grey Pyrus papers. LOVE the fall feel these papers bring! The papers as well as the seam tape were sprayed with frost smooch spritz for a most subtle shine! whoa, is that spray fun to use! A skeleton leaf and felt/music sheet lollipop finish off the card. of course I had to add some pretty lace trims for such a pretty fairy! :)
My next card uses the newly released, Autumn. I couldn't resist making her into a Halloween card. used some papers that were gifted to me, so I apologize that I don't know any info about them. I made a little embellie with some very old crepe paper I came across, May Arts pom pom trim, and tiny black ric rak. buttons and paper sunflowers complete this festive card! Spiced Cider shimmerz was painted on all of the orange areas of Autumn for a little more shimmery shine!
Please check out all of the phenom creations posted by the other DT members today. This is a most amazing group of crafters, so leave them a bit of love, too! :) Happy crafting!
