3 Girl JAM and Craftin' Desert Diva's Blog Hop


Welcome to the Craftin' Desert Divas and 3 Girl JAM Fall Blog Hop!

I love Fall!  Pretty leaves, cooler weather.....and hopefully, here in No California this year, some RAIN!   Fall hasn't hit here yet.  As I write this, it's over 95 degrees.....but I'm hoping it's coming!

If you have arrived from Tara's blog, you are in the right place.  I'm your second stop on this fabulous hop!

For my card, I used gold and white card stock with a leaf embossing folder to create this fun Fall card.  The stamp is SO cute.  I seriously love this sweet lil bear!  It's from the Craftin' Desert Diva's Hey Pumpkin Set!  I also used some 3 Girl JAM Diagonal Striped ribbon to embellish the card.  The bear is colored with Copic markers.  Then I used a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor cardstock and inked it up with all of the Fall colors in Distress Ink.  I stamped the leaf part of the bear stamp over and over and fussy cut the leaves.  I love how they turned out!



We have some fabulous prizes available to random commenters.
