autumn treats!

 Let's pretend for a moment, shall we?  Let's pretend that the cute little treat pail you see before you, is filled with yummy delicious candy corn.  Or the candy corn that's shaped like pumpkins.  Or maybe some ginger snap cookies.  Or cinnamon sticks.
There WAS a bag of candy corn to fill this treat can.  But it never made it INTO the treat can.  I did it for you though - REALLY, I did.  I didn't want you to be SO SAD that you have no candy corn.  So I saved you from seeing it.  That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it. {giggle giggle!}

Okay, so as you can see from my cute (empty) treat can and card, I have been busy with the Mischief rub-ons.  No stamps on these two projects. (WHAT!?)  Just rub-ons.   You can see the whole package of rub-ons HERE. . .they are so cute.  Perfect for Halloween, AND fall.  I highly recommend them! And they were VERY easy to apply, even to the tin pail! I just added some ribbon and twine from my stash, and one of CTMH's cute little wooden buttons.  And maybe one day, the candy corn will last long enough to make it INTO the treat pail! ;)
Okay, now for the bonus round. . . .just HOW LONG exactly have YOU been a fan of Close to My Heart? Were you with us when it was D.O.T.S?????  I'm talkin, way back in the day of wood mounted stamps.  Because THIS, my friends, is a little framed piece I did a VERY long time ago.  I pull it out every fall, because I still just LOVE those pumpkins.  I colored this with colored pencils, and it just makes me HAPPY! I saw it as I was walking outside to photograph today's project, and I thought I would share it with you, just because!  :)
