All Things Stampin' Up! November Blog Hop

Welcome to our FIRST Blog Hop!
I am stop #4 on the Blog hop.  There are 12 stampers featuring their work.  Because this is the first month, some of the ladies will not be posting projects until December 6th (our Blog Hop #2).  I love to read your thought, so please leave me a comment!!  :)

My Give Thanks Project:
When I think of Thanksgiving or Fall, I think of cool, crisp colors.  Fall reminds me of football season back in my hometown of Richmond, Michigan.  Since moving to Florida 8 years ago, I "miss" the fall season!  This card reminds me of walking outside, seeing the leaves change color and fall to the ground, crunching under my feet.  This card captures that beauty.

I used 3 of my new SU! purchases in this card.  I just love the Hello, Doily stamp and I feel like it fits this card well.  It provides the "pretty" for a background to the leaves.  This stamp is so versatile and I promised myself I would use it for each holiday card I make!  The antique brad really sets off the center of the doily and the Spice Cake DSP just gives the card a "Fall" feel.

Supplies Needed:
Stamps: Hand-Penned Holidays, Hello, Doily and Gently Falling
Card Stock: Pear Pizzazz, Early Expresso, Very Vanilla
DSP:  Spice Cake
Ink:  Early Expresso, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, More Mustard, River Rock, Soft Suede
Accessories:  Antique Brads
Ribbon:  Pool Party3/8 inch Ruffled Ribbon

Thanks ladies! I love Gently Falling and Hello, Doily. My goal is to find a use for Hello, Doily for every holiday! Stay tuned for a Christmas use!
