Thinking of Fall...


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 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 know, I have to admit that I have a very hard time getting into the autumn mood when we are still breaking 100 degrees everyday here in Austin.  So today, just to make sure that I could get myself thinking "fall" instead of "I want to fall into a pool of ice cubes but they would melt before I could do it" I turned the a/c down low, made a cup of my favorite coffee, and made this: 

I find myself loving this stamp set more and more, since it works across every single season.  Just grab some autumny colors and you are set!  Here are the details on the card: 

Stamp set:  Field Flowers
Card stock:  More Mustard, Soft Suede, Pool Party, Very Vanilla, and Spice Cake DSP
Inks:  Soft Suede, More Mustard, Pool Party
other:  distressing tools

Quick and simple and full of the fall spirit!  I hope that no matter where you are that you are enjoying a gorgeous fall day, or if you are like me you are dreaming of that crisp air and cooler temps!  Now, make sure to pop on over to Michelle Single's blog for the next stop on this fun hop! 

Have a safe and Happy Labor Day...

Kim
