  1. Hi Judi, I just love your Scarecrow he's lovely. Great choice of papers and yes I noticed your Haybails the other day and thought how cute they were and those Pumpkin brads are wonderful. I know you make Pumpkin Pie in America but do you eat it as a Vegetable like Roasted or Mashed we eat it in New Zealand Roasted and or Mashed it's my favourite vegetable.

  2. How adorable is this! I love Stanley - he looks so happy and you colored him so well. I love your haybales and the pumpkins sitting on them. Too cute! I wish fall was in the air here, I am really going to miss WV this time of year. The warm days, cool nights and brilliant colors... *sigh*

  3. Wow! What a great card for this season, Autumn is here big time too. The leaves are covering the ground and the rain hasn't helped in keeping it pretty. The straw behind the pumpkin brads is just fantastic! Love it all.
