Lawnscaping Blog Hop!

Hello everyone and welcome to the Lawnscaping Blog Hop! I'm so excited that you're here and I'm so excited to be a part of this blog hop. You should come to me by way of Heidi's Blog.


The hop runs from today, Friday, October 5th until Sunday, October 7th, so make sure to leave comments on all of the blogs to be eligible to win some GREAT prizes!! The winners will be announced on Monday, October 8th!

We were asked to create a card that was based on the photo shown above. Here is my card:


I really wanted to incorporate the dark brown from the barn, and I wanted it to have tons of fall leaves. And of course, you can't have a fall card without a pumpkin! This card feature's Lawn Fawn's "Quinn's ABCs" and "So Thankful" stamp sets.

Now head over to Melissa's Blog to see what she created! Thanks so much for stopping by, and comment for your chance to win some prizes!

  44. Hi Elise, I think your card is just fantastic. I can imagine how much time you must have spent fussy cutting all of the elements on this gorgeous card. I love how you got the brown in there with you sentiment. It really really makes your card. :O) I don't have any alphas yet, but you are all making it harder for me with each and everyone of the cards that you guys have used them on. Ahhhh I can just feel my wallet getting lighter by the blog. lol... Anyway, I wanted to tell you how much I love all the colors in your card and how well you do fussy cut. I wish I could do it that great. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for sharing all your hard work with us all. Hugs, Lisa G
