The hop starts with Lynne ~ (http://slasewcraftiness.blogspot.com). You won't want to miss a single calendar event not to mention the weddings, graduations, birthdays -- ok, you get the idea!!!!
I chose Columbus Day and National Candy Corn Day
I embossed the base of the sip with forest branches to give it some depth. The patterned paper for both my projects were from digital paper file "Vintage Summer" from My Memories created by Mel Hains Designs. that I printed for my cards. added a bit of twine a torn blue strip for the water and some red glitter glue.
My second card is for National Candy Corn Day
I hope you enjoyed my creations and it is time to head on over to Lisa Peters to see what she has created for today! Don't forget to leave some bloggy love if you would like a chance at the blog candy!
