I love the name of this set and of course it's perfect for this time of year! This is a hostess set from the current SU catalog. I've really been wanting to play around with it and just recently got the chance. I basically CASE'D it from the catalog sample picture-a great source of inspiration! Although the card requred alot of cutting, it's worth it because I think it turned out to be really pretty; perfect for a variety of occassions.

I also made a mini notepad book, using this set. I made a couple of these not too long ago. Check out my older post here. Inside the book is a small legal notepad. Very simple to make. Let me know if you'd like the pattern.
