Celebrating fall!

The Impression Obsession design team challenged ourselves to celebrate fall this month. I did this card for my grandson with one of the new IO stamps designed by Leigh Hannan, called Halloween Topiary, and a sentiment from the "Anytime Sentiments" clear stamp set, which is one of my favourite IO sets. I use it
often for cards for friends and family.

In fact, I like it so much that I'm offering it as blog candy today!

So have a look at it (it's there below my card), and if you'd like to win it, please hop aboard the praise train and leave a little lovin' for each card done by the design team. All the links to their cards are below. On Sunday, I'll post the random winner, from among those who leave comments on all the cards, and this delightful set will be sent to you directly from our generous boss-lady, Mitra Friant, owner of Impression Obsession! IO designers won't be playing for the stamps, but I know they'll be tickled pink to read what you think.

So here's my card, coloured with Tombow watercolour markers, and prettied up
with some "Glamour Dust" from Deco Arts.


And here's that great sentiment set. You KNOW you NEED it! (lol)


Finally, here are links to all the other designers' cards...have a look,
see their gorgeous creations, and don't forget to let us all know you've visited.

You can see Daniela's here

You can see Julie's here

You can see Kelli's here.

You can see Laura's here

You can see Penny's here

And here's the card by Dina, our guest designer

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and
good luck in the journey towards
this cool blog candy.

This is a very different Halloween design from all the rest and it really catches the attention of the reader. It definitely is not your cutesy Halloween style....very adultish. I love it. It allows for much definition and coloring. Can you just see all the possibilities in this one stamp. Great job! MarilynY
