Halloween or Fall Cards 4 Kids Card Recipe

I was behind as always.  I actually turned in last month's card early and I just knew I would forget about the month of September.  It was a self fulfilling prophecy.  I pulled out an old faithful from My Favorite Things and decided I was going to color only some elements of the images I stamped.  And of course I had to add some splatter.  I found some fall plaid card stock from Lawn Fawn and used it to mat my card front.  These mice are so cute and I just love fall weather.  Starbucks and Dunkin have Pumpkin Spice flavored coffee - yum!  And it is getting dark earlier.  I am looking forward to wearing blue jeans and sweatshirt and socks.  LOL. So here you go - September's card. 

 Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  Consider entering our challenge and donating your hand made cards to our great charity.

Here are some affiliate links to the products I used.  It doesn't cost you a thing, but I get a small commission which helps me purchase my crafting supplies.  


Have a great day, eat some chocolate and be kind to everyone.



  1. Well, April, you've done it again... creating another fabulous card! That spattered background is a perfect canvas for your sweet scene. And, I love the pops of colors in the leaves. What a great idea. Have a feeling I'm going to be casing that one. Take good care.

  2. Love these sweet mice, and the pops of color accent them perfectly!

  3. Great minds think alike! I used this same stamp set for my card. I love your sweet and adorable use of it and that splattered background is awesome!

  4. Love this card and the way you didn’t color every little thing!
