FALL Blog Hop with DeNami Design!


Hello and welcome to your next stop on DeNami Design's FALL Blog Hop!!! If you're on track you've arrived here from Wendy Harrill's SUPER FUN blog! If not, no worries...just click HERE to head to the DeNami Design Blog and start at the beginning!

Our Autumn colors have been SO FANTASTIC in Colorado this year thanks to the snow holding off until AFTER the official first day of Fall! HA! Tony and I have been hiking and enjoying the crisp air and the AMAZING leaves! Thus, my inspiration for today's card:

My original idea was to stencil the letters and then cover them with the fussy-cut colorful leaves. Once I started laying it out, though, I could see it wasn't going the way I wanted it to. So I decided to create the stenciled letter windows instead. I'm REALLY pleased with the results! I'll show you a close-up if you promise to not be too tough on my craft knife skills! HA!
