October Monthly Blog Hop - CDS

Good morning and welcome to the October Monthly Blog Hop with Clear Dollar stamps!  You should have come here from Linda's blog...if not be sure to start at Lori's blog!

This month's theme is Happy Fall Y'all so I had to go with one of the new images from the super adorable set Autumn Critters.  I had fun putting one of the digital papers from the set together with an embossing folder to make this card.  I just received an order from Kraft Outlet so I had to use some of the kraft paper that I received as well as a hand dyed tag on my card.  I think both of them lend nicely to the fall feel of this card.  My layout is from Card Patterns this week. And I'm entering this into the Paper Sundaes challenge this week. 

I am excited to hop along with everyone to see what the rest of the CDS DT's have made!  Your next stop is Kathy's blog.


If you get lost you can come on back here and get on track through the links below...
Lorie (That's me!)

Thought of the day:  You don't have to attend every argument you're invited to.
