Its now November... Time to use up that Autumn paper stash and get a move on to Christmas!! Or, sit in denial that Christmas is only 6 weeks away, and wait until the turkey leftovers are gone before you even THINK about Christmas... Your call.
This layout uses Motley Monsters, which has GREAT non-Halloween patterns, so do not stash it away for next year - USE IT!! :-)) I combined it with the Seasonally Scattered stamp for the center panel, and also used a sentiment from Remembering Your Birthday to turn the lovey-dovey stamp into a Love Ya Birthday Card... Perfect for friends or family at any time of the year!

The layout I'm casing had the ribbon a little different, and I felt that my crushed curry chevron ribbon just didn't work that way, so I tried two different uses of the ribbon. I think I am OK with both, but I'll have to get some solid ribbon to use for the next time, the chevron with the dots and patterns is a little overwhelming, IMO. But still a festive and happy little card!

I'm finding that I missed my daily card making challenge I set for the previous months, so I'll be back this month building my card inventory and exercising my creativity!!
I hope you'll enjoy my efforts, thanks for visiting!
