It's the first of November! That means another fab Stamp of the Month {SOTM} from Clear & Simple Stamps. This month, the focus is on fall, and this adorable set called Happy Fall. For my card today, I thought I would create a little scene to celebrate one of the most beautiful seasons. Keep reading for this month's Color Story, as well as a coupon for a discount on this fun new set!

Regina what a cute little fall scene. I love how the leaves trail off blowing in the wind right into the sentiment. So cute. The squirrels are adorable too.
