Certainly is a Harvest of Blessings and an Autumn Stroll Blog Hop!

I know I’ve complained a bit about how the garden put forth an abundance at the busiest time of Summer, but I’m truly thankful and I know we’ll enjoy all the things I’ve canned or frozen when we have snow on the ground! I just finished putting up about 2 gallons of salsa!! And, yes…I’m going to make several more batches over the next couple of weeks!

Now I want to share another blessing… this new digital set from Sweet n’ Sassy Stamps,
Harvest Fruits.

harvestfruits-watermarkedHarvest closeupIt’s all colored with Copics with a little gel pen highlights. I also tried something new… a Magical Marquee Card! I’ll give you the link to a tutorial in a minute.

and here it is open


Those curtains just magically open! TaDa!!

I’ll admit, mine didn’t go together quite as easily as in the tutorial, but it’s so cool! The card measure 5x5.

The verse is sponged with distress ink.
All the cardstock is generic stuff from Hollo’s (this awesome store north of me where paper is $1.25 a pound! yeah.. a POUND! good thing it’s almost a 2 hr drive for me or I’d have a whole room full of paper!) The patterned paper is Pocket Full of Posies by DCWV.

Okay…here is the tutorial link I promised… Magical Marquee Card.

And here is the next blog in line Ceal Pritchett, enjoy. Be sure to stop by the SNS blog tomorrow and Friday during the hop!

and as always…

Thanks for stopping!
