What I love about Fall/Halloween Blog Hop - Oct. 7th and 8th 2nd day


Hello Friends!

Welcome! thanks for stopping by my blog and I am so excited to be a part of this hop and I so LOVE to admit it is beautiful with the changing of color leaves, crisp air, football games and the like! :) My absolute favorite time of the year! :) Thanks for hopping and check out what it is all about below. :)
Welcome to the What I Love About Fall/Halloween Blog Hop. This hop is scheduled from Oct. 7 at 8:00 am through Oct.8 at 11:00 pm(cental time).

If you just happened to come to this blog, you can start at the beginning with Lisa Peters- If you just came from Christina's blog, then you are in the right spot.

Here is my project: I made a gatefold card for the FIRST time ever and I have to say that I like it! :) Will have to play around with this kind of fold. Wish I could have taken another pic to show you with the card opened but my camera batteries need to be recharged since it died on me....sigh...

Recipe: I used kraft cardstock as the base of the card and did gatefold style, then on the one side I taped the light yellow cardstock which is base for my pumpkin stockcard (SU) and then I put two fall flowers from my collection put together and then added red gems and the rick rack for the stem and leave and then stamped in black the sentiment from CTMH "grateful hearts" stamp set (I love this set!) and voila! :)

Hope you love the card! This was going to be in a frame for my post but I realized I got the wrong size so I will try again and do one in a frame and show in the future wouldn't it be nice to add to your decor!? :)

Thanks again for stopping by and your next stop is Theresa! don't forget the bloggy love! :)

In His Love,
Be Inspired,
