Favorite Season.....

Hello everyone: I've been absent for quite a while, I had some family situations I had to take care of that involved traveling to Mexico with my elderly mother to bring her back after 5 1/2 years of living with us here in the USA. Her health was the major issue for this decision since she is 94 years old.  It was a very difficult time for me for a lot of reasons and that is why I took some time off from blogging. I'm happy to report that she is doing well in her new place and this gives me comfort and peace of mind, she is close to 3 of my brothers, my sister and I will visit as often as we can.
Anyway, we have a new challenge for all of you to play with over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, this time we want you to make a card showing your favorite Season of the year.  
I love all them but my favorite is the Fall, with its gorgeous colors and cooler temperatures and for me, the celebration that jumps start the Holidays is Halloween. So here is my card that I hope inspires you to join my teammates and me in the gallery.

I just love this pair of Pumpkins, I've used this images several times to make cards for my grandkids and also for friends. They are old so I really can't remember if they are from Penny Black or somewhere else, I do not have the packaging so, I apologize for that.
I stamped this images onto water color paper, colored them and fussy cut them, the bats are die cut, the sentiment is from an old Flourishes set called "Witching you a Happy Halloween"
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

All the images are from my stash of Halloween stamps, I sure wish I knew where they came from.
So there you have it, hope you come and play with us over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, my teammates and I can't wait to see what you can create.
Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
