Fall is here!

Hi Everyone!

I've been so busy and wanting to get a few projects done, but time just zooms by. I finally decorated my house (so late this year) and when we finished my son said it's just too cute - we really need some spooky things Mom. He's eight so the smiling bats and glitter pumpkins are just not cuttin it :) 
Boy am I ready for some Fall weather! I was feeling in the mood for Fall today so I created a card for a few challenges. I used the sketch from Mojo Monday it's a fun one. I sure hope you all have a SUPER day, thanks for stopping by!
I followed the sketch and didn't change much - it was a really cool sketch and will use it again.
