Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #295 - Fall

Greetings krafty friends! 
Hope you had an amazing week and are ready for some
weekend fun! I am hoping my weekend is much better than the 
latter part of my week as I unfortunately had a very freaky thing 
happen to me.  WARNING: this might gross some of you out
my apologies in advance for that.   I got a nosebleed that wouldn't 
stop.  This was only the second time in my whole life that
I've had a nosebleed.  I ended up in the Urgent Care clinic
for a couple hours.  Had 3 rounds of cauterization (OUCH!!!!)
 that didn't take so had to have a tampon like device 
crammed into my nostril for 24 hours.   I missed 3 days of work
at a time when I couldn't really afford to miss and was knocked
flat. I had to keep down and still for most of the 24 hours and another 
half a day after that. It was a scary and frustrating time.  
  I fear that my nose will never be the same again (my nostril is still 
HUGE and the inside is pure black) there's still a little 
bleeding off and on and I'm still a little woozy. 
I'm tellin' you it has been such a BUMMER - and not a situation
that I hope I ever have to repeat!

Anyway...I'm guessin' you are really here to see my latest 
creation for the newest Saturday challenge at 
KRAFTIN' KIMMIE  and not my belly-achin'
(but thanks for listening :o) ).

It's the last Saturday of August 2015, kids are back to school
and soon it will be Fall so our theme this week for 
KK Challenge #295 is FALL! 
I made this card a little bit ago for a magazine call
but it wasn't selected so I get to share it with you today

This is Lexi from the stamp set called "Hey There Punkin"
This is one of my favorite stamp sets to use for fall.
I particularly love this one because of the pie.
Pie is my favorite part of Thanksgiving :o)

We have had so many forest fires all around us and the 
air quality has been terrible for many many days in a row.
(probably why I got such a bad nosebleed).  Even though I 
usually fully enjoy summer and LOVE fall, I'm actually
hoping for an early snowfall to help with all the fires. enough from me today. Thanks for stopping by to visit!
Please go see what the other Krafty Girls have made to share
with and inspire you to play along this week.  You could WIN
