If friends were pumpkins ...

 I'd pick you!  And you!  And you! :)

Hello, dear blog friends!  
Indeed I'm blessed to have connected with each of you 
in this wonderful blog world we share!

Now it's been a busier week than usual, 
and I've been trying to post this card since Tuesday!
  I recently purchased some digis at From the Heart Stamps including this one, September's stamp of the month image.  
I've played in their SOTM progressive challenge in the past, 
and then that busy little thing called life stepped in to curb my playtime :/
I'm happy to be back and just absolutely adore this month's image!

 and the inside of my card:

 I've finally got the chance to use up some of my supplies in addition to this
 first time using this digi, like the wonderful Crate Paper 'home' dsp and that little peek of River Rock ribbon that I've hoarded had for awhile!
I'll add my card to Darnell's NBUS #5 challenge
 (which I've also been trying to
do all week - tee hee!) 

I'll also enter my card in the monthly challenge at FTHS.
 I hope Autumn is bringing you wonderful moments 
and pumpkin everything! :)

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
