Autumn Bag and thankful giveaway

It's no secret that I have developed a love of all things Fall now that I live in New England. I see first hand why the Pilgrims (my ancestors) decided to call this place home! I have been spending the cooler evenings in my studio creating up a storm in preparation for the long winter ahead! ;)
I recently went to Right At Home Scrapbooking and picked up Nicole's beautiful Fall and Holiday newly released stamp sets. Click on the link in the title if you are interested in seeing Nicole's darling stamps or the other wonderful products she carries in her store. I also created a little bag that holds a sweet sentiment stamp set that I will be giving my neighbor who is the most thoughtful friend. I think she will enjoy the simple stamps and get her back to making some cards with me this winter!

I stamped the leaves and used Distress ink to blend in. I stamped them onto Bristol board so the paper would warp a bit when reacted with the ink and water. I wanted a more rustic look for Fall.

I also made this place card that I may end up using on either a tag or another card... Haven't decided. The script font on the place card is from Reverse Confetti. You can find many gorgeous phrases and stamps there.
Is there a time of year that you do more creating??  Leave me a comment by October 31 letting me know if there is a time of year that makes you more crafty or creative...  I will pick a random winner Monday November 2 to win a couple Mini Distress Inks (brand new)  I am thankful for crafty friends and have some extra to share! I am enjoying this streak and hope it continues through the winter.
