Designed2Delight Monthly Blog Hop

Welcome to the Designed2Delight monthly blog hop. Faith has released four new fall and winter images and sentiments this month, really great new images. Some of the designers are showing some oldies as well today. We are revisiting some favorite older D2D fall and winter images. I've got something old and something new to share today.

My first card uses Sunflowers and Pumpkins. Isn't this a great fall image, so much fun to color. I love sunflowers and just cut some at my CSA on Friday and have been enjoying them in a vase all weekend. I've used the sketch from Jen delMuro's Sketch For You To Try for August.




Card Recipe:
Ink: printer
Paper: SU Old Olive, Really Rust, Summer Sun, Copic xpress blending, unknown patterns
Extras: copics, Cuttlebug pumpkin embossing folder, Recollections gold brads, dimensionals

My second card uses the apple basket from the Apple a Day set. This set is one of my favorite fall sets, it has a cute apple pie and coordinating sentiments as well. And once again, really fun to color! My sketch comes from Freshly Made Sketches #48.




Card Recipe
Image: Apple a Day set
Ink: printer
Paper: Copic xpress, Kraft, PTI Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate, Recollections apple print
