Happy Fall with Meljen's Designs

Fall is in the air. It's my favorite time of year. This week end we are planning on making our annual trip to the pumpkin farm. Soon we will head to the apple orchard. Yeah, picking apples is fun, but the apple cider shakes and the fresh doughnuts are my favorite part.

Since I was in the autumn mood, I decided to make an autumn themed card using Country Pumpkins by Meljen's Designs.

Stop by the Meljen's Designs blog to check out the new releases and the new challenge. This week we are challenging you to make a Halloween themed project. I hope you will join in the fun.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a fabulous week end!
