Hello and Happy Fall to all! As the days grow shorter, sunsets come earlier, and the air is a little cooler, we know fall is coming. Everyone loves fall and for papercrafters it is a season rich with possibilities for card-making with pumpkins, leaves and fall foliage. Let me share with you samples of new dies and stamps.
