Autumn Blessings Blog Hop

Welcome to the Autumn Blessings Blog Hop.  It's that time of year when family and friends may share a good meal, have memories to recount, and think about those who can't be with them for whatever reason.

If you've arrived from Paula, you're on the right path.  Our blog hostess Lisa wanted us to create a project for her hop using the theme, Autumn Blessings, so sit back with your favorite beverage and gobble up some inspiration for the coming fall gatherings.  Lisa also has some blog candy which she'll detail on her spot.

I made two cards using techniques that are out of my comfort zone, so I am blessed with plenty of crafty resources - either in supply form or Internet inspiration!

This first card is an easel card, which I fashioned with various layers, using a pumpkin house w/mice digi stamp Dearie Dolls Digis, some gel pens for highlighting, and punched pattern paper w/stamps for the sentiment -
So Thankful for Good Friends Like You!

The second card is a center-step card.  I used a few different patterns from Paper Piecing by Nikki Happy Fall Crows to add the autumn flavor.  I fussy cut the crow with pumpkins and the apple basket (again highlighting w/gel pens).  I added some ribbon and pearls to the front step to give the card more of a 3-D look.

Thank you for taking the time to swing my way.  Leave me a comment and/or become a follower of LoveBug Creations before you go if you'd like to be in the running for Lisa's Blog Candy.
