Fall Fun Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the Fall Fun Blog Hop! A group of online buddies decided the holiday weekend in the US would be a GREAT time to get inky together, and so we've put together a fall themed blog hop to inspire you as the autumn approaches. As you meet our stampy bloggers today, you may discover that some 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.

Speaking of goodies...I have some ready to ship to one lucky commenter! I love using these items myself and hope you will enjoy them, too! So...here's what you could win...
My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Two "Blush" pad
My Mind's Eye Lost & Found "Christmas" pad
Melissa Frances lace trim package
Two colors of baker's twine
I'll use random integer to choose a winner on the following Monday, September 12 (deadline to comment is midnight on Sunday, 9/11), so good luck everyone!

On to my fall card...This trio of pumpkins is a fave fall image from Verve's Bountiful Harvest set and so fun to color with Copics! I highlighted the leaves with Peeled Paint Stickles and embossed the chocolate panel using a pumpkin EF by CB. The DP is by My Mind's Eye from their Six by Six "All Spice" pad (guess you've figured out I love MME papers - lol!). I used the Fanciful Flourish die by Cheery Lynn Designs to cut and add the leafy vine accent.












Here is the full list of our blog hoppers:
Next on the blog hop is the talented, sweet and sassy Korin Sutherland!

Thanks for visiting us - grab yourself a nice fall beverage (my choice is pumpkin spice latte!) and enjoy!
