August TOUR DE FREAKS - We are featuring goodies in the new Holiday Catalog

Welcome to the August TOUR DE FREAKS!   We are featuring goodies in the new Holiday Catalog that goes live on September 1st.  There are lots of wonderful items to pick from.  You may have come from Connie Babbert's blog.  Her projects are always fun to see.

I just received my Holiday Catalog order and decided to show a couple of Fall/Halloween cards.  My first card is a Fall themed card using the Happy Scenes stamp set and the Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies.  I used a window sheet to make it look like you are looking out of the window.  I popped the actual window frame to give it depth.  This would make a nice fall birthday card for anyone.
