Fall Favorite

While I have three mornings a week when I have no children around, I haven't had that much free time since school began. I am actually feeling quite lonely on the mornings when all the kids are at school, so I have tried not being at home alone too much. I really should not avoid it, though, because I could actually get some stamping done!

The other morning I had about forty minutes between errands and pick up, so I sat down and played along with the A Muse Lounge Challenge #21: Fall Favorites. One of my favorite things about fall is candy corn. It is an embarrassing thing to admit, but I do love it so. I've bought more than three bags since it appeared in stores in September, though these are the small sized bags, not the humdinger sized bags. My kids eat it, too, which is probably even more embarrassing. So, I set out to make a card featuring candy corn.



I used a layout similar to the one from this card that I made long ago. I then went a step further and added some of that super sparkly Martha Stewart onyx glitter (another fall favorite) to "Happy" and called it good. Couldn't have been easier! And I had time to spare before getting to preschool - just enough to snag a few candy corn from the jar on my way out the door ;)
