Yay for October! This is my favorite stamping month because of the Hope You Can Cling To challenges on Splitcoaststampers. If you haven't heard about them, go over and check them out. The first challenge is from Lydia and she asked us to make a card inspired by our least favorite weather. Living in Texas, I hate being hot. The sun is not my friend at all and neither is the humidity! I thought I'd use my Lawn Fawn dies and make a card that would be useful for someone going through a tough time. The layout is based on the current sketch at The Paper Players.

We were so excited to find that we had caterpillars in our butterfly garden!! They will be Monarch butterflies, so that's even more exciting. It is so fun to just watch them eat and crawl.
