You've Got a Friend in Me


This week at Blogger's Challenge we were do a fall themed project.  When I think of fall, I think of some darker hues like browns, mustards, rust, etc.

I wish the bushes in my front yard looked like these beautiful colors, instead I chopped them down as they looked more like weeds :-)  I don't have a green thumb, never have, but I will go pull weeds once in awhile.


This card uses the new set from Clear & Simple Stamps called Topiaries.  I've seen some great cards using this set, it always amazes me how creative people can be with sets that I have, have had, etc. and never thought to use in a way that they might.

I even liked this card so much that I finished the inside of it, which I don't do too often, but thought that this card would look great with a finished inside.

Hope you will hop around to the other blogger's today to see what they have created here.

Card details:
Stamps: Topiaries from Clear & Simple Stamps
Cardstock: Espresso Yourself, Kraft Like a Rockstar Cream, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Grey Max & Whiskers
Accessories: Orange you Fabulous, Espresso Yourself and Simply Blue-tiful buttons from Clear & Simple Stamps
