August Blog Hop!!


It's time for another PTI blog hop!! I missed out on last months so I wanted to be sure to participate, but also because this months theme is Autumn! Given that autumn is my favorite time of year, I HAD to play along!!!
Here in Minnesota the leaves are already starting to turn. We haven't had a real warm summer and it seems the leaves are starting earlier this year, could just be me though too!
I received some images from Papertrey's new Autumn Abundance set, wow, this set is gorgeous!!! The image also fit in perfectly with Monday's Mojo challenge. I pulled out my K & Company mat pad from last year to use as my color inspiration, used my new Diamond and Dots embossing folder for the top portion and colored the image with copics. It was a fun fall card to make!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Supplies:
