Fall Fun Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Fall Fun Blog Hop! A group of online buddies decided the holiday weekend in the U.S. would be a GREAT time to get inky together, and so we've put together a fall themed blog hop to inspire you as the autumn approaches. As you meet our stampy bloggers today, you may discover that some have goodies for you (like me!), so be sure and visit everyone on the list. We have hoppers from all over the globe today, and they are amazing artists.

Thanks for visiting us - grab yourself a nice fall beverage and enjoy!
Here is the full list of our blog hoppers today:

My fall card is made for a cute October love note! I used Falling For You by Paper Smooches. I stamped the bat in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored in with my C1, C3 and C5 Copic markers. His eyes are colored in with Only Orange and a Spica Glitter pen. The scalloped cork background was cut with my Grand Calibur using a Spellbinders Scalloped Oval die. My fun puffy satin bat trim is from May Arts. Click on the photo for a close-up view!

I have some fun Halloween blog candy up for grabs too! From Totally Stampalicious it's Witch Brawd! Take a peek:
If you would like to win this set, be sure to leave a comment and put "blog candy" in there somewhere with a way for me to contact you if you are the winner! I will draw a random winner from all interested and post here on Thursday, September 8, so you have until Wednesday midnight CST to comment!

Yesterday was a beautiful fall day here in the low 70's - full of sunshine! So a friend and I went to our State Fair in the next town. I haven't been to a State Fair in probably 30 years, so it was really fun to see the exhibits (oh my goodness - the QUILTS!), ride the ferris wheel, eat funnel cake, and try to win giant stuffed animals! Oh, and the baby goats were adorable!! What did you do this weekend?

Keep hopping along so you don't miss one little thing! Next is the amazing and talented Jenna Barber! Thanks for stopping by today!
