Fall Fun Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Fall Fun Blog Hop! A group of online buddies decided the Labor Day holiday weekend in the US would be a GREAT time to get creative (is there ever a bad time?) so we've put together a fall themed blog hop to inspire you as the autumn approaches. Some of today's bloggers may have goodies for you, so be sure and visit everyone on the list. We have hoppers from all over the globe today and they are amazing artists.

Thanks for visiting us - grab yourself a nice fall beverage and enjoy! (Full link list below) My card features a darling digi image from Sweet 'n Sassy and one of my newest steel dies from My Favorite Things. This sweet bear is named Rhubarb and he's one of the newest addition to the Sweet 'n Sassy gang (there's even a full stamp set featuring Rhubarb!) and this image is called Rhubarb and Birdie. I colored Rhubarb with Copic markers and then cut him out so he could stamp up in my lush die-cut grass, which came from the Fresh Cut Grass die. The fun leaf and tree paper (seen on the inside of the card) are both from Momenta. These are great textured papers, the leaves are all embossed and there is a slight shimmer to the paper - very pretty! My card is a tent card, adore this style of card...perfect for this type of image. My frame was created with Nestibilities circle dies and the sentiment is also from Sweet 'n Sassy. Hope you enjoy and the next person in our hop is: Cathy McCauley

PS - Leave a comment and be entered into my drawing for a grab bag of stamping goodies! I always have way too much so I'm happy to ship off a box of designer paper, stamps, embellies, etc. to another crafter!!

Here is the full list of our blog hoppers today:
