Moxie Monday: Witch Hazel from October Afternoon

We all love October Afternoon for their vintage approach to modern design, don't we? They have an uncanny way of taking bygone visuals that tug at our heart strings and combine them with colors and patterns that make us want to jump up and create something paper crafty right now.

For me, the Witch Hazel collection is no exception. When I first saw this line with its fun witches, playful spider webs, and its happy jack o'lanterns, it made me want to howl at the moon as it hangs in its signature teal blue sky. And whether you are drawn to its retro goodness or its unique color palette, you can't deny that this is one of the sweetest Halloween collections you have ever seen. Check it:
























Are you feeling an irresistible urge to howl at the moon in its teal sky as well? If so, leave me a comment by midnight EST on Sunday, November 5 and I'll draw two random luckies to win!

It feels great to howl at the moon a little, doesn't it?
