Blog skip at Crafting by Designs!

A new beginning, a favourite season!

Welcome to the blog hop celebrating our new blog Crafting by Designs!

Our theme: Our favourite season! 

If you arrived here via Julia's blog: Paper and Scraps Creations, you're still on track! Don't you think her card is so super cute, all ready for Christmas!

My favourite season is Autumn or Fall. I love the leaves that changes colour, the whole way the season change. Leaves in all shapes and sizes and colours, I really love leaves!

The card I made is quite simple and quick, using some die-cut leaves, stamp pads and sponges. I used the leaves as templates to create the background on a tall Kraft card. The leaves were sponged and curled and added with dimension tape. A few glitter dots complete the card.

Your next stop is Tammy's blog : Cuttin' and Stampin where I'm sure you'll get some more inspiration!

Hi Rene -- Your card is lovely and as much as I LOVE Summer, I also love early fall, when it's very warm and the season are just beginning to change. But, once it gets cold, then I long for Summer and Spring!!

Hope you have a wonderful holiday and Congratulation on being part of the new DT and new HOME for CBD!!

Happy Crafting,

Hi Rene, I have been meaning to get over here to say "Hi" and let you know that Beth on our CBD team really does exist! I feel awful about our blog skip... I didn't know that Doris had scheduled me for it... miss communication on both our parts but I still felt awful, especially it being our grand opening as it were! Well, I'm here and your newest follower. Hugs and Happy New Year,
