Lawnscaping Blog Hop!

Good Morning!  So glad to see you hopping along with Lawnscaping!  You should have arrived here by way of Bethany.  If not, and you've lost your way--no worries!  Just go back to the Lawnscaping blog, and they'll get you back on track!

The theme of the challenge is Fall, which is really exciting for me since it's my favorite season.  I just love the crisp, chilly air (and how the lack of humidity makes for better hair days for this curly girl!).  I love sweaters and boots and apple cider, and the beautiful warm colors and textures.  So, when I was brainstorming what to make for my project, I thought that the fox from Critters in the Forest would be a great warm, orange focal point, and the fun neutrals from this past month's Studio Calico card kit would go perfectly together.  Add a bit of cork, and voila!  Fall!


In addition to Critters in the Forest, I got to use the super fun set that Lawn Fawn put together for Studio Calico.  Don't you just love the cute speech bubble and the arrows?!

Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to leave a comment; a random comment-er will be chosen by Lawnscaping to receive a prize!  Also, I've got a giveaway of my own:  If you'd like to win 2 Echo Park 6x6 pads, all you have to do is become a follower of this blog, and leave me a comment on this post!  Easy peasy!

Next up is the talented Lisa!

  39. Hi Jen, I don't know what came in the Calico kit, but I do love how your card turned out. You are such a wiz with all those layers. I just love the look, but I have only given it a shot a couple of times myself and I never did finish the cards. lol... Chicken I guess. I think your card is fantastic and it makes me want to grab a warm cup of coffee and sit by my fire while I watch an awesome Christmas movie. lol... Sorry, it just really speaks fall to me and that always leads me into a movie marathon of watching all my favorite Christmas movies. Anyway, great use of colors, textures and all around wonderfully talented card making. Truly beautiful card. Have a wonderful weekend, Hugs Lisa G

  47. Just beautiful! I love all of your choices of paper and how the white tag makes them pop. I really like the use of cork. How do you buy the cork? Is it for crafting or is it just a piece cut from a big piece of cork? TFS, really inspired me!
