Stampin Up “Fall Fest” and “Fun Fall” Happy Stampers Blog Hop

blog hop 4

Hi Stampers, I have another fall card to share with you today as I participate in my second Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  Here in the Pacific NW the rains are just around the corner as we have been enjoying such beautiful sunny warm days so far.  Being the true  Pacific Northwestern gal that I am, the rain will be a welcome change of season for me.  It means soup on the stove, fires to warm you, candles to make your house smell good and of course more time to stamp.  My card today is using the Fun Fall and Fall Fest bundle from Stampin Up.  It just screams fall with all the colored leaves and the warm sentiment.   This would be a nice card for Thanksgiving or any fall event.  Enjoy and thank you for stopping by.

Take Out Box

The card and box are made to match.  This would be a great hostess gift to bring on Thanksgiving.  Fill the box with a treat and bring it with you on Turkey Day and then send the card as a special holiday thank you.
