ICS Blog Hop Giving Thanks

Yah for fall!  My favorite time of the year.  I was inspired by the scenery in my neighborhood and right outside my stamp room.  Also, I was able to use one of my favorite stamp sets, Sheltering Tree.

I love a simple and clean card.

Stamps:  Sheltering Tree, September My Paper Pumpkin
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Early Expresso, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Mossy Meadow
Accessories:  Raffia from My Paper Pumpkin Sept kit, dimensionals

ICS Blog Hop Fall for All

Oh Boy!!!!!  My favorite time of year!  I just love fall with all the colors and the cooler weather, (yes I'm one of those wierdos who likes cold weather).

I have chose to use the September My Paper Pumpkin kit a little different than what is in the kit.  I just love the stamp set that came with it, so versatile.

For my card, I used Cajun Craze, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Very Vanilla.  For ink colors, there are Cajun Craze, Bermuda Bay (even though it doesn't look like the card stock in the picture, it does in person), Crushed Curry.  Used the raffia in the kit and put a metal rimmed pearl in the center of the bow.  The punch I used was our Decorative Label punch.

Hop on over to the sisters and see what Darla and Nancy have created for you!
