Avery Elle September Release Blog Hop


It is time for fun and inspiration with Avery Elle blog hop. Joining us this month is Kim Singdahlsen.

I used Thankful stamp set on both my cards. It is a small set with a big, cute acorn, a leaf and three sentiments.  Perfect for fall and thanksgiving. For my first card, I paper pieced acorn with some Studio Calico paper.  I also stamped the leaf in two tone. A couple buttons and a little bit hemp twine adds more color and dimension to the simple one layer card. This card is entered into CAS-ual Fridays #115 and CASology week63.


When I saw the big acorn stamp, I immediately thought about this cute squirrel from Happy Camper set.  So here it is.  A little guy with a big nut.


Here is the complete list of the blog hop.
