Inking Autumn Inky Friends Blog Hop -- Painted Harvest


Welcome to the Inking Autumn Inky Friends Blog Hop.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who have gathered to introduce you to the Fall-themed products from the Holiday Catalog.  To see the line up of Stampin' Up! artists participating in the hop, click here.  If you are traveling forward through the hop, you've arrived from Sara's blog where she featured projects using the Wonderful Life stamp set.  If you are traveling backwards through the hop, you just saw some great projects made by Twila using the Gourd Goodness stamp set.  It really doesn't matter which way you travel through the blog hop, though; all the blogs are linked in a circle and eventually you'll visit all the stops by clicking on the NEXT or PREVIOUS buttons contained in every blog post.  I hope you enjoy your travels!

Fall is a very short season in East Central Florida.  We typically have a few cooler days in mid-November and December and call those Fall because we aren't in the 90's (or more) during the day and the nights are in the 60's.  Trust me when I tell you that we've been looking forward to those days for MONTHS!!  In most areas of the US, folks know that Fall is coming because you need a light sweater and/or the leaves are turning color on their trees.  In my yard the way I know it's Fall is that the leaves have fallen off my plumeria and my azaleas are blooming.  

Having grown up here, I need to depend upon my travels and photos for the colors and feeling of Fall.  Keeping that in mind, I have two projects to share with you.

Wow Mickey! These are gorgeous! The clusters of elements, and the use of white space, all of it creates a well balanced and beautiful set of cards :)


Gorgeous cards, Mickey! I love the colors you used. So perfect for fall!
