CSS Inspiration Challenge Blog Hop

Hi there! Welcome to our September inspiration blog hop brought to us by Joy! Thanks Joy for this beautiful photo. I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer yet but I do love the fall colors.  You should have arrived here from the super talented Cheri.




I was going through my stamps the other day and realized I have a lot of gorgeous stamps that are not being used that I love. 
 Using Gina K. Designs " A Farm Life" illustrated by Theresa Momber. I was inspired by the colors going with soft fall colors.  I love this image and sentiment, so great for a birthday or anniversary cards. I made this for my DH birthday.
The card stock is by Gina K. Designs, sponged the background with Memento inks and colored with Copic's and Prisma Pencils.







The next stop along the way is the ever so creative Joy. If you would like to join us, we would love to see how the photo inspired you. You can find the entire blog hop list at Stamp TV.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
