Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #17 ... Happy Fall, Y'all!

It's time for Challenge #17 at Craft Hoarders Anonymous and our theme is:  Happy Fall, Y'all!  Many of us like to purchase New seasonal products EVERY season.  What happens to last years Fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving products?  WE HOARD THEM!!!  Of course we do!  Well actually I like to think of it as misplacing them instead of hoarding them.  But I guess it is what it is!  So drag out some of those hoarded items and create something wonderful to share with us.  You can make something for Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, or any other Fall or harvest celebration!  Once you have created your piece link it on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous blog.  I can't wait to see what you make!

I love making tags and so I just had to make a Halloween tag to share with you this morning!  I used items from all three of our Sponsors for the month of October:  Polly's Paper Studio,  Lind's Stamp Gang and Add a Little Dazzle metal!

I used the beautiful image from Polly's Paper and the teal matched the Add a Little Dazzle teal metal sheet so I just had to make a rose and the cheesecloth/spider web and the leaves behind the rose were sprayed with a Starburst Spray from Lindy's Stamp Gang. And low and behold I even had some teal card stock that matched beautifully.  The blackbird and the checkerboard trim are also from Polly's Paper Studio on Etsy!

Craft Hoarders Anonymous' very own Ginny Nemchak owns Polly's Paper and very generously gave the design team some wonderful designs to play with and she is supplying the amazing prize for this challenge!

This prize package would be a wonderful addition to your Fall hoard.  The ribbon alone is enough to make your fingers itch in anticipation!  Thank you Ginny for being so generous!

Now go get busy and make something wonderful for the challenge.  You have until midnight PT, October 19 to enter the challenge.  I can't wait to see what you create; good luck to you all!

Hi Glenda,

Great Halloween tag! I found a cute Halloween stamp in the sale bin. It's still waiting to get some ink on it -- but not for long!

Love the flower and all the elements you used for this tag.
