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. One of my favorite new stamps is this gorgeous Fall Arrangement PCS. The picture can't do it justice! It helps you create a stunning Thanksgiving card in no time.

Beautiful card. Great stamp set. I love that arrangement. I agree with you that pictures just don't capture the beauty of the cards. My cards always look better in person. I think this needs a frame for your Thanksgiving decor.

Louise, you have such a way of highlighting colors in the pretty pumpkin to bring out the dimension of its shape. I love the darker autumnal colors in the leaves and flower centers in contrast to your pale blue background and table top. Beautiful card! hugs, de
