Halloween Wreath For All Seasons

 Seems like I have gotten behind with my Halloween cards. The first weekend of  the month my sisters (from Jersey and Az) visited to celebrate my birthday with me. A few days later I flew out to Az to visit my sister and her family for a couple of days. Then took a side trip to San Diego for 5 days. It's great to be back and crafting once again.
This card is for my mother-in-law. I wanted something with more of a fall theme vs Halloween.

The wreath is stamped in Kraft ink. The berries were stamped in both Summer Sunrise and Orange Zest inks. After I stamped each color, I rotated the stamp 45 degrees and stamped again (without re-inking). I used my copics to color the pumpkin.

 Here's a close up of the ribbon treatment.
 Seems like this card meets this week's challenge over at Cas-ual Fridays.

Create a Clean And Simple card or tag with an element that goes over the edge.

I want to share a craft my granddaughter made for me with her mommy's help.

  They wrapped strips of white material around a spaghetti glass jar. It's a candle!!! She saw it on Pinterest.

  He is so adorable. Looks like crafting is continuing with the younger generations. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!

This is so stinkin' cute!! Some clever people out there and I agree, fun to see it "lighting a fire" in the younger generation!
