Fall is my favorite season for so many reasons...sweaters, the leaves, the smell from people's fireplaces and wood stoves if you go outside, the smell of burning leaves. the night time sky.

I love Halloween, because spooky is cool, and it is the one day a year you can pretend to be anything you want!

Great giveaway, thanks for the opportunity!

Mary Gregor said...

This is a awesome give away. I started following your blog and Love Halloween. I love the kids that dress up and go trick or treating. Not the scary ones but the little ones that put on their favorite costume and who are too shy to say trick or treat. I also decorate my house with plenty of lights and eyrie(SP) noises. I will try to post on my blog but I don't have many followers.
Thanks and keep up the good work.

Glad you were able to get your computer back running, Christy! Sometimes mine won't turn on (it's almost 9yo), unless I reset the surge protector ::shrugging shoulders:: Anyway, an awesome giveaway! My fave thing about Fall/Halloween is that it's so magical, everything is changing colors & Halloween is just so much fun!

Vicky said...

Darlene 'Dee' Bishop said...

Hi, Christy! I'm a new member at the Making Greeting Cards Yahoo Group. Nice to "meet" you! As to fall, I love the cooler temps, the colors here in East Tennessee and everywhere else, the sense of the holidays approaching... I don't care for Halloween and all the satanic garbage that goes along with it now, but I have wonderful memories of trick-or-treating as a kid and getting all that candy! Maybe that's where my sweet tooth first developed! LOL!

I joined your blog, and I'll be posting a note on mine about this contest. Great contest, great prize!


Darlene 'Dee' Bishop said...

Okay... posted a note at - thanks, again!

Hi Christie!
What a great give away! Wow….I’ve never heard of this Yudu Cardshop, but it looks really interesting….crossing my fingers that I win, LOL!
I love the fall, the changing colors of the trees are so beautiful this time of year. The crispness in the air at the end of the day, snuggling up with my blanket and a good book at night, and my darling hubby lighting our wood stove up to keep us warm at night.

Hi Christy,
I would love to be included in this giveaway. I do not, however, have a blog yet. Thinking about it though.
I love fall because of its wonderful colors. I love Halloween because of the costumes and the kids getting all dressed up. Thanks for having this giveaway.

My fave thing about fall is pumpkin. And not Jack-o-lanterns. Pumpkin. Pumpkin icecream, pumpkin soup, pumpkin cake, pumpkin pasta, pumpkin everything I can dream up. Butternut squash makes a great substitute too.

I love Halloween, the yummy fun things to bake and make. Costumes are my fav! Usually I help my DD and SIL get dressed up, but next year I will finally have the chance to help dress a Grandbaby due this December!

I have signed on as a follower.

ScattyShirley said...

first am I allowed to enter as I live in UK but my son is in Denver so he allows me to have stuff delivered there if you need a US address.

But what I love about fall,
Is scuffling through the leaves, yellow, brown, red, green and even purple hues.
Watching geese migrating some go south some come here! from colder climes.
Wrapping up in mufflers, hat and coats with shoes

That come up to my ankle some people call them boots!
Evenings drawing darker, lights twinkling in the windows
Robins singing their vibrant songs, and low in the sky the large harvest moon.

Fireworks for Divali, Eid and The gun powder plot celebrations.
Lighting up the dark sky with even more colour
Bringing together people from many nations.

Now you can see what I like about fall or autumn as we call it.

ScattyShirley said...

oh forgot to say I am now a public follower and have mentioned you on which is the nearest I get to a blog though if I can find out how to add links to my Facebook page I will do that there.

gmanshk said...

I love halloween colors, especially the colors of candy corn LOL! yummy. Please pick me. I think this is an incredible give away and would love to have this machine.

Dee in NC said...

Love your blog - great ideas and projects! Fall is my favorite season, too. Cool nights, warm days. Pulling out the big box of mittens and hats to see what still fits and reminisce about the people who made them and the snowballs we've thrown. Warm blankets and good books. Putting away the bathing suits and shorts and pulling out the jeans and sweaters - yay!!

Kim Bright said...

Hi Christy!

Hi Christy! My favorite thing about Fall is the perfect temperature for dh and I to ride our bikes. The bike trail is covered in crunchy leaves and it makes such a neat sound.

Fall is my absolute favourite season!! Crisp autumn air, not too hot or too cold, and the multicolour leaves on the trees lining the streets (particularly on the fabulous scenic drive through the mountains to either of my parents houses or our cottage) love it!!!
