DeNami Fall Blog Hop


Welcome to the Fall Blog Hop hosted by DeNami Design.  You should have arrived at my blog from the very talented Chunyan Wu.  If you just arrived for the first time, or you have lost your way, head on over to the DeNami Blog for a complete listing of today's participants.

Here in Northern Illinois we are in the midst of an Indian Summer with temperatures in the high 70's to mid 80's, and I'm loving it! Woo Hoo! However, when I think of "Fall" two things that come to mind are Halloween and bare tree's, so I created two very different cards to share with you today. 
My Halloween card showcases the DeNami D107 Cruisin' Chickie,
F207 Three Winter Trees (stamped many times to create my forest of trees),

This card features DeNami's P93 Large Winter Tree, the sentiment

I enjoy participating in these monthly blog hops hosted by DeNami, because they always have 30 talented designers showcasing how versatile and easy their products are to use.  Not only that, but they also give away Gift Certificates to their On-line Store just for hopping along and commenting on each of the participants blogs.

Love how you used the little tress to create the "cornstalk" forest. Looks like cornstalks to me. Love it. We are having Indian summer here in Michigan too. We are finally getting the weather I was waiting for. It was too hot all summer to be outside. Getting in some much deserved patio time. LOL Really like the CAS tree card too. Great color combo and ribbon!
