Happy "Owl"oween

Fall is SO in the air here! It is like October hit & the temperatures automatically took a nose dive lol! I've had to build a fire a couple of nights now to take the chill off the house & have woke up to find frosty roof tops a couple times too. Leaves are starting to change colors & drop & the sun is setting earlier every day. Which means less time to do outside chores & more time to craft! (not always the case but it's nice to dream!) Last night after taking the boy to get some school stuff I was feeling the crafty urge & the bright nearly full moon outside inspired me to create this.
This is so much cuter in real hard to photograph such a dark card. I chalked in some depth to the moon w/ grey chalk & that doesn't show in the photograph either.
The star DP is DCWV & I used stamps from 2 different sets from The {Stamps} of Life owls2love & the clouds are from kites2build. I hand cut the circle for the moon so that it wouldn't be perfectly round & added some iridescent glitter glue around the outside edge to give it a sparkly halo & attached the fussy cut owl w/ foam squares so he pops up a little. Easy peasy Halloweenie!

Woo Hoo!

My October set from The {Stamps} of Life were waiting for me in my mailbox last night & I actually was able to break them open & stamp with them on the first night! That hasn't happened FOREVER!
It's called penguins4christmas & has a ton of cute stamps & sentiments! I used foam squares to add the stack of prezzies so that the edge of my joy fold card would rest underneath to stay closed & the present he is holding is on a foam dot too. The fluffy bow on top of it is a prima flower folded in half & trimmed a little w/ a brad added.

Here is the inside. The frame is a {Stamps} of Life also-it was a fun freebie Stephanie added in w/ a set a couple months back & the sentiment is from this month's set. I know I've said it a bunch, but I just LOVE being club member!

I am entering on the following challenges:
Catch the Bug, Anything goes
Card Making Mama's, Fancy folds
ABC Challenge, A: Anything goes
Make it Monday, Anything goes

The weather here has taken a nasty turn to the cold side... so I am hoping to get to cuddle up with a nice warm fire & have a little craft time tonight!
