Happy September 23rd!!  The first full day of my favorite season of the year!!  Here in New England it's time for pumpkins and bright colored leaves, warm days and cool nights, and Football!!  I welcome the cooler weather and all the wonderful activities that Fall brings.  I also am hoping with the busy days of Summer coming to a close we will see more and more of our Followers joining in on our weekly Challenges!!  We have missed you and your creations!!  Fall is a great time to get back to crafting!!  The holidays are right around the corner...  ;-)

We are so happy to welcome back Sami Stamps as our sponsor this week. Samantha Siemers Ratliff is the owner and illustrator of the wonderful images offered at Sami Stamps. You might know Sami as the younger sister of Tammy at A Day For Daisies where she grew up fascinated with art and watching her sister paint all day in her art studio. Sami got her start through her sister’s store and now has an ever expanding selection of her own digi images at Sami Stamps. Sami’s inspiration comes from those things around her that make her happy in hope that it might brighten your day.
