Another reason it's a favorite is because so many people dear to me were born in October, so there's lots of birthday wishes to send and celebrate this month.
Below is a card I made for a few of those October birthday (girls) in my life with some variations. I used 2 gifts from my dear friend Nancy; a set of neon inks from hero arts (link is to online sale at Joann's for $5.99), and a great background stamp from Darcie Heater (i think...don't know the name of it right now). The HB stamp comes from a clear set by Hero Arts called Glow Girl and I'm crazy about it (also a gift...from my sis, Jen).
Thanks for looking....I'll be back soon to post about the MAIN reason I love October...stay tuned :).
