First Day of Fall Blog Hop

Today is the first day of fall.  The change is welcome after a long summer of very hot temperatures in Texas.  Let's have a blog hop today and see our fall cards.

Since I had several pumpkin stamps, I am featuring pumpkins and Thanksgiving in my fall post today.

Card #1

This first card is made with a freebie digi image from Mabelle called Blessed Harvest.  I tried several ways coloring this image and made a few different, yet similar, cards with it.

 Card #2

On this card, I tried some slightly different Copic markers to brighten up the pumpkins.

Card #3 

This card is made with a combination of the Blessed Harvest stamp and Mabelle's Pumpkin Girl

Card #4

This pumpkin is a stamp from Our Daily Bread.  I've used Copic markers and Spellbinders dies with my cards.

Card #5

This last card Ihad shown previously with a DDH challenge using embossed paper.  It is a DDH image called Fall Sampler.  I pieced three of the same digi pumpkin together for the card.

Join in this blog hop with your fall creation card.  Just link on below:

Teddy Bear Day

Happy Teddy Bear Day today on September 9th.  What a fun day to celebrate!  Debra Miller and I decided to do a blog hop and invite others to join us with their teddy bear cards.  Hopefully you will make a card and link it so we can have lots of teddy bears to view.
I'm sending bear hugs to you with these sweet little brown bears.

My card is made with TAC's Bountiful Bears and Beary Much stamp sets.  The cardstocks used are Toodle Loo SWIC and Caboodle cardstock A.  I colored the bears with Copics R20, R22, R27, B12, B16, B18, Y15, E31, E33, E35, E37, W1, W5.

The image is mounted on a Spellbinders Labels 5 Nestie, and I added some sticker jewels.  The hat and flower wreath are popped up to give dimension. 

Now it is your turn.  Link your card below and hop with us to see all the bears.  You have until 6 PM on September 11th to join the blog hop.
