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 (and Canada!!) 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.

Thanks for visiting us - grab yourself a nice fall beverage and enjoy!

Here is the full list of our blog hoppers today:


You've made it this far, so I'll keep it short... here's my card for the blog hop. It combines a stamp set I love (SU's Season of Friendship) with colors I don't usually use, especially together! baja breeze & cajun craze? more mustard?!? well ok, i love baja but still. the colors were taken from the DSP I used - a SU pack from many moons ago. I knew I was hoarding saving it for a special ocassion! The card itself is a case of this beauty on splitcoast. I used the Top Note tho, because it's my favorite (and I didn't have the right size circle...) I added the birdie for our hostess with the mostess, Lydia , and some ribbon just because.

Oh. Did I forget to mention I've got some blog candy up for grabs?? How's this...  
yummy blog candy!
Package will include...
  • SU Night & Day Specialty DSP (unopened pk)
  • MS stickers (2 sheets each of glittery witch & gothic owl and 1 sheet of dimensional "finishing touches") MS clear alphabet stamps "goo" pattern 
  • MFT WTG set "coffee? tea?" (not in pkg, but never seen ink) 
  • MFT ribbon nest in coffee colors (similar to "brown collection" but with a stripey grosgrain & faux-suede instead of taffeta & chiffon)
Just leave a comment on this post by 11:59PM AST Friday, Sept 9, 2011 and I will choose the winner sometime that following weekend.

Your next stop on the hop is MISTI at A Card a Day.
