First Day of my Favorite Month

As I mentioned yesterday, October is my favorite month. Temperatures are cooler, but still very comfortable during the day. The nights are crisp, the mornings often quite cool. The light gets softer and the colors bolder. Warm, earthy colors - my favorite colors that I love to work with and also love to wear.

That's probably why my tag for Kard Krazy's Tag Tuesday challenge is all in these fall colors. The challenge was to include some kind of calendar or at least something with a date. I included one of those little calendars in credit card size , used different papers and some stamps with lots of Distress Inks - and I was done. When the tag was finished I thought that it is also perfect for the Geek's birthday, which is today!

Stamps by Hampton Art and Kelly Panacci/Sandylion

Today is also the first day of the month-long online photography class by Tracey Clark and Big Picture Classes, Picture Fall. It looks like it's going to be a great class and I'm really excited about it. October is such a wonderful month for taking pictures!

Carola, your tag is really beautiful. I love the autumn colors too. Maybe it's because like your dh, I was an October baby. And I like fall for the same reasons you do, the crisp air, the gorgeous colors. and speaking of color, I really like how you handled the colors in your wonderful tag.

Cindy recommended your blog on her blog. I'm glad she did. I've enjoyed my visit here. Autumn is my favorite time of the year also. Seems to me like it is just about everybody's favorite time.
Happy Fall,
Charlotte

I'm with you on Autumn, my favorite time of year, too. Can't wait to wear jackets and boots. It might be a while though, still have the air on.

Love your tag.

This is so pretty, and great for fall. What a coincidence that we used the same charm on the same week :)
