Fall Blog Hop

This month the angels over at Paper Wings is having a "FALL" blog hop which included not only fall projects but some halloween projects too. I chose to do one of each and they were both so much fun, entirely different cards.
Had to do one with the darling kids from Delightfully Spooky - colored with copic markers but with my octagon nesties and thenm mounted on a "retired" paper pack of Halloween papers we used to carry. I am very stingy with this pack as it has so many cute designs. Some green Halloween grosgrain ribbon and I used my BD present from DD - the tiny attacher (stamples) from Tim Holtz. Isn't it just the cutest with those tiny stamples, perfect for ribbon.
My next project was one I cased from this issue of Paper Crafts magazine using a 5 1/2 square TAC dark green card stock and a selection of fall colors from DCWV Neutrals stack with white core - great for sanding. I used 3 patterned cuttlebug embossing folders and then placed them geometrically on my card. Used some heavier twine to tie a bow and for the focal image colored the pumpkin from another new set Autumn Leaves (which will be offered as the SOTM in Sept - at a reduced price.).
Now hop on over and see what everyone else has come up with for their fall projects and sit back and enjoy.

Hee hee, I see who our paper hoarders are. (I finally used my Halloween designer pad a few months ago. LOL I still wish I had more of it.) I am going to steal the green hair idea. =) What fun ribbon!
Your fall card is beautiful, the embossing reminds me of metal.
