DeNami Fall Blog Hop


HAPPY FALL EVERYONE!!! I think fall is my favorite season…and no, contrary to my family’s belief, it’s not because I get home made stuffing & a turkey leg, but that does help!! ;) Now if I could sit in a room all by myself, scarfing down said home made stuffing and turkey leg and be outta all the usual family drama…that’d be a real treat and I'd TRULY be thankful!!! Well, enough of all that family drama business...you seriously DON'T wanna get me started ;) and besides, I don't have a bottle of wine handy!

Are ya ready for some more super fun hoppin'? Got your coffee maybe a energy bar to keep you going...I'll wait....alrighty, let's get movin' shall we?

 You should have arrived here from Lisa's blog. She is so talented...just LOVE her work, it's always so clean and crisp looking...couldn't pull that off if my life depended on it! If you didn't, just head on back to DeNami's blog ta get back on track. Don't forget to leave those comments gals...DeNami Design is giving away two $20 gift certificates to two randomly picked people that have left comments along the hop. So be sure to leave everyone a little love….we bloggers live for your comments and besides, who wouldn’t be excited about the possibility of winning a DeNami Design gift certificate??? Oohh how I puffy heart me some DeNami stamps and just recently had to add another 3 drawers to my storage system!! 

Well, here's what I came up with...


 I just love my little Jack O'lantern! Notice the background paper? Mmhmm, did it myself...I'm so proud that I'm getting out of my box a little. I created all the vining using 4 separate stamps...the curly garland border and both twirly guys from the leaf accent set, then added the little leaves from the elegant floral set. Did ya notice the candle yet?? Mmmhmm, made that too! I used the same stamps for the vining and the small Jack O'Lantern. I learned how to do this a couple of years ago...makes an awesome gift! While I'm tooting my own horn, I might as well tell ya'll that I made the candle holder too lol. A close friend owns a ceramic studio...I love to go play there :)

A little close up...
Don't forget to leave me a comment...good or bad, all are welcome and now off you go to visit Nicki Scheck. I'm betting she has some truly amazing eye candy for ya...can't wait to hop on over there myself!
