It's All Fall Blog Hop!


Happy Saturday!
Welcome to the It's All Fall Blog hop featuring Joy's new stamps titled, It's All Fall Puns!
I'm so happy you decided to join us!

If you came here from Megan's blog, then you are in the right spot.
If you just happened to stumble across the hop today on my blog and would like to start at the beginning, then just hop on over and see Joy of Joy's Life.

For my project, I decided to make a card to send to my daughter who is currently away at college.
While my card isn't necessarily fall themed, the It's All Fall Puns set has quite a few stamps that can be used any time of the year. That's what I love about Joy's stamps. They are so versatile!

Here is my card:


I cut the squirrel out of my create a critter cricut cartridge at 3.25" and put her on an action wobble for fun.
I kept the card pretty flat for easier mailing.

Here is the inside of the card:


The acorn was also cut out of the create a critter cartridge but at 2".
The little envelope is from Martha Stewart and I just simply cut off the flap to make it a pocket.

Here is a closeup of that adorable sentiment:



How cute is that?!?!
My daughter is going to love it! She loves anything made with Create A Critter and she thinks Joy's stamps are so fun! Not to mention the cash right? ;)
