October Fall Blog Hop

Hope you enjoy our Fall Blog Hop.  We are having so much fun.  

Here is my card for this month.  I just love fall and the colors are in my favorite pallet.  Enjoy!!  The sandable early espresso paper worked great with the woodgrain embossing folder.  Can you guess where the words came from? Check out It's a Wrap Occasions stamp set on page 31 of the catalog.   Just love to use stamp sets in a different venue than shown in the catalog.  I love the challenge of finding many ways to use one set.

And you are not limited to making just cards.  I also covered this box that holds four wooden coasters.  I used some scrap designer paper from last year, but you can certainly see how easy it would be to make in the new designer papers.

Here is another view as well as a view of the coasters.  I used clear spray-on Krylon sealer to make them water resistant.  I found the box at Ben Franklin in Bonney .

The coasters are reversible.
