Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop: warms my heart



Hello and Happy Saturday!  Today is the 25th of the month which means the Papertrey Ink blog hop!  Check out the gorgeous Fall Inspired photo:



It seems that I don't have much when it comes to PTI fall supplies but I managed to design a card:


Let's start at the top and work our way down.   I combined the oh so sweet, Nuts for You + Cozy Christmas sets.  I started off with a Tag Sale #3.  I stamped the sentiment from the Cozy Christmas set.  I adhered the cute acorn onto the thermos.  Can you tell that I did some speciality snipping on the squirrel so that he could hold onto the thermos?  I topped off the tag with some twine that I had in my stash.  

The Linen & Canvas impression plate is a timeless tool, don't you agree?  That Linen side is awesome and gives cards just the right amount of texture.


I can't wait to hop around and be inspired.  Fall inspired cards are probably my favorites!

You inspired me to pull out some of my PTI embossing plates-- I went for the square on my other card (and my card used a Lil Inker die), but you were my train of thought. Love your little squirrel. Happy Saturday my friend... I am trying, very hard, to resist all this online enabling of crafty sales.

So dumb... anyway... glad I didn't miss this one...
