Blog Hop Winner and Happy Fall

Congrats to Lottie ( winning  the $3 Gift Certificate to the Designed2Delight Shop on my D2D/Whipper Snapper Blop Hop post. 

A big THANK YOU to everyone that visited for all the sweet comments.

Today I am in an Autumn mood and couldn't resist using the image, Autumn Harvest again.

Let's see...I believe that I absolutely love everything about this card.  The Autumn colors are my most favorite to create with.  The most favorite right now.  The Leaves EF is my favorite find lately.  The piece of recycled cardboard, the button and some recycled twine that was wrapped around a candle were perfect embellishments.  The sentiment was printed on Kraft card stock and punched out with a tag punch.  I couldn't resist using my picket fence border punch. I hope this card inspires you to create an Autumn card.
