Lawnscaping Blog Hop - Fall

5 October 2012


Welcome to the Lawnscaping blog hop, I am so excited to be part of it and I'm so glad you're joining in the fun!  You should have come to me by way of the very talented Laurel Beard.

The month's theme is FALL with a beautiful inspiration photo to go along with it.



I made my card using two Lawn Fawn stamp sets and some of their lawn trimmings, (which I LOVE.)  I didn't have a fall specific set so I decided to use the leaves from Flutter Bys, and I made my own sentiment from Quinn's ABCs.  I was trying to make it look like a pile of leaves that had fallen from a tree................ I'm not sure I did that but I hope you like it anyway :)



The hop runs from Friday, October 5th all the way until Sunday, October 7th at 11:59pm.  Make sure to comment on all of the blogs to be eligible for some FANTASTIC prizes!  All of the details can be found on the Lawnscaping home page.

Now, head on over to Donna Bowman's blog, where I'm sure she has something fantastic for you.  If you've gotten off-track, don't worry!  Head back to the Lawnscaping blog to see the complete list of designers and prize information!

Enjoy the Hop!!

  26. This is completely awesome! It looks like you dipped the bottom of your card in glue and then dunked it in a leaf pile! Love it. And what a great way to showcase that Lawn Fawn makes it so easy to use what stamps you've got on hand. They're so versatile.

  36. I don't make a lot of seaonal cards so I do t have a fall specific set either. I absolutely love what you did here! I don't know how I haven't managed to get Flutter Bys yet since I am a huge butterfly fan, but this card has inspired me to move it up my wish list. :) And I am a follower of yours now - glad Lawn Fawn sent me your way!

  52. Hi Tracy, I think your card turned out wonderfull! It really does look like a pile of leaves in the Fall and I think you have colored them to perfection. I also have to tell you that I am so glad to see you used some of the LawnFawn letter stamps and I have never used any of them and I am so so wanted to get some yet, I have been having a hard time deciding which set would work for me. I am thinking (thanks to your adorable card) that when payday comes along I am finally going to get me this set. I just love how your card looks with the letters on it. It just makes your whole card look so fun and inviting. Thanks for sharing your great ideas. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Lisa G
