Happy Fall!

Fall is moving so fast now! It's almost November and time to give thanks for the people who make our life so memorable! I just love the time leading up to the holidays, all the hustle and bustle of making these days festive and special for my family.

This week the Stampendous Design Team is sharing some of the beautiful Fall designs, perfect for the season. This new Autumn Points stamps is so lovely and I think the blue background gives you the feel of a crisp, cold autumn day!
