Fall/Halloween Hop

Good morning everyone and thanks for stopping by my blog!  Today is day two of Nicolette's Fall & Halloween Blog Hop.  We were asked to create any sort of project representing Fall or Halloween!  I am so excited to be in this hop!  If you just happened upon my page, you will want to start at the beginning with Nicolette.  She is a super sweet gal and a very talented crafter.  There will be lots of great projects and some blog candy along the way!  If you arrived here from one of my favorite crafters, Jenny - from Jenny's Scrapbooking Haven, then you are in the right spot!  I am very honored to following her in this hop.  Her creations are always stunning!

This is a two day hop, but some people will have projects for only day one and others will be posting two, depending on how ambitious we all are. ;)  Point being, you will want to come back for day two so you don't miss anything!  I'm going to try to post two projects.  Luckily I have some that have not been posted that I created last year. Yay!

I will be giving away a little surprise blog candy of my own so in order to win you must a.)  be or become a follower (only my followers get treats!)  b.) leave a comment with a way to reach you  c.)  this is totally optional, but I would be so happy if you did that I will give you an extra entry - stop by my new blog and leave a comment (follow if you want, but not necessary).  Leave a separate comment here as well so I know you did that. Best Things I've Found In 'Zines is the name and link.

Now then, enough of all that rambling, let's get on with the show!  Errrr... hop!  ;0)

The project I have for you today is one of last year's creations, but it's never been posted.  I chose to do a Fall card for this post because yesterday I did a Halloween post. :o)

This card was created by using a strip of an autumn border paper sheet, a torn sheet of a dusty blue cardstock, and a rectangle mat of the same color.  Then I stamped a cute tree stamp on a piece of white card stock and colored in the swirly tree with Stickles.  This is one of the first times I have ever used Stickles and now I use them on almost every project (unless it's vintage). :0)

Don't forget to leave your comments and follow the instructions (listed above) to enter to win some blog candy! I will pick a winner by mid-week, next week.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to come back tomorrow for another project.  Your next stop is Kathryn.  Can't wait to see what she has in store for us!

XO ~ Amy Jo
