Fall Challenge at HSS

It's almost the first day of fall. You know how I know that? September 23rd is my Birthday and it happens to be the 1st day of fall. It's a great time of year. :)

This week we are challenging you to create a fall project at Hand Stamped Sentiments.


I wanted to make a card, but my card turned in to a tag, then my tag turned into a tag and bag combo.

I was inspired by the project that I earned for FREE from Stampin' Up for recruiting during the month of July. Here is the box topper:


Here is a close up of my tag....it was inspired by the box topper......


Ingredients:
Colors: Pool Party, More Mustard, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzaz, Very Vanilla
Stamps: Friendly Phrases, Gently Falling
Accessories: Spice Cake DSP (so yummy!!!), Champagne glitter, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Basic Pearls, Decorative Label Punch, Scallop Trim Border punch, Oval punch, Scallop Oval punch, Spice Cake fabric, Rope (retired...boo)
Other: Plain gift bag

I wish I could say that I am feeling great, but I have strep throat AGAIN! I am so sick of this. I hope the meds they gave me this time will work!! On that note.....here are some cute pictures of my kids.....they keep me going!!

Travis is 9 months old ALREADY!! He smiles ALL THE TIME and loves to make friends...

Luke is my thoughtful, sweet boy!!



Tyler, aka toothless, is my funny guy that still loves to cuddle!!



Happy Stamping,
Krista
