It's Blog Hop Time!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have had a great week. Today Instyle Stamps is having it's monthly blog hop. If you're following the hop you should have just left Kristine's Blog , if not you can start from the ISS Blog. Our theme this hop is Fall/Autum. I used Janice (available in digi form) and made her 3x her size. I colored her with copic markers and prisma pencils. Janice may not look like she is ready for fall on the outside but inside her card she has included some delicious fall dessert recipes for you to try. My friend moved to Chicago a few months ago and she had been asking me to send her a recipe of a dish she loved so I thought it would be nice to send her a card with some fall recipes for her to try out also. The little pocket is very easy to make. You just score the two sides of your cardstock and adhere to your card.



I used Glue Arts Raise n's to add dimension to Janice and Glue Arts Ribbon adhesive to apply my ribbon. I'm telling you this ribbon adhesive is great, just be careful when you're handling it because the stickiness can get you if you're not careful. :) The Raise n's are very easy to use, you just peel and stick them to your project.

Your next stop is Robin's Blog. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to vote for your favorite project!
