Lawnscaping Fall Blog Hop

**If you are looking for my post for The Alley Way Stamps, please scroll down**


Welcome to our Lawnscaping blog hop! I'm so glad you're here! You should have come to me by way of Karin Akesdotter  The month's theme is all things pumpkin and beautiful changing leaves: FALL! The hop runs from Friday, October 5th, all the way until Sunday, October 7th. Make sure to comment on all of the blogs to be eligible for some FANTASTIC prizes! All of the details can be found on the Lawnscaping Home Page.

One of the things I love most about fall is planting Mums in my front flower beds.  I love their rich orange, gold and burgandy hues.  For my card today, I used rich, fall tones like the ones in the inspiration photo.  I used the Flutter By stamp set for the flower images, and the sentiment is from Hats Off To You.



Now, head on over to Heidi H.'s Blog!  If you've gotten off-track, don't worry! Head back to the Lawnscaping blog to see the complete list of designers and prize information!

gobeagirl said...

Hi Audry, Wow I can just see your front flower beds and I think it is not just your wonderful discription of it but your equally GORGIOUS card! I love the simple elegance of your colorful flowers with the stark white to add such a touch to it. Your beautiful ribbon with the pattern paper under it is just the perfect touch and I have to say that I just love this card. I am telling you that I am going to have to work double time to purchase all of these stamps that I now think I MUST have just because of this great hop. :O) Yes, I am a goof, but I truly mean it when I say that I LOVE your card and how wonderfully you have colored it. Thanks for sharing. I hope your weekend it just fantastic. Hugs, Lisa G
