September 2015 Blog Hop Challenge

Today is the day for the September PTI Blog Hop!  We were all inspired by this beautiful Fall photo


Here is my take on it...



I love this new sentiment set from Melissa! It fit perfectly into the Luggage Tag, designed by Dawn. And, I used Betsy's chalkboard technique, and Heather's Rustic Wreath stamp and die.  

Sadly, I broke my Vagabond on this. :(   I had the wrong plates to emboss the Picnic Plaid onto the Smokey Shadow background.  Maybe Santa will come a little early this year!?!

Very sweet, Luanne! I'm so sorry to hear you broke your cutting machine. I was lost when mine broke. I'll bet if you're really, really good, Santa will come. ;0) So glad you were able to finish your beautiful card!!

So sorry that you broke you machine, Luanne! You card is so pretty though. :) I almost used that sentiment myself! :) I think you could play this over at AAA Cards Autumn Colors challenge too. :)

I feel your pain...I broke mine too, decided I should just get the hand crank one (it did make a lot of noise) and not worry about doing it again (wrong plates, too!) I love how you tucked the wreath behind the tag with the sentiment! and your sweet green bow tied off at the top with twine is just the icing on the cake!!

Well, I see a beautifully finished card, so all was not lost! Feel your pain, ended up always having a spare on hand... just in case! The wreath around the luggage tag is so sweet, and I love the subtle bg!

Oh no, sorry you broke your vagabond! I never had one but bet you are very sad to have it break Your card is simply beautiful!

Oh Luanne...this is SO pretty! How did you get the leaves of the wreath colored, or is it DSP? Either way, it is simply beautiful behind your gorgeous chalkboard tag! And so sorry to hear about your Vagabond...I just got a Big Shot a few months ago (love it!), but still keep my old Cuttlebug just in case...can't imagine being without a die cutting machine! Hope for your sake Santa does come early!! :0)

Oh no - sorry to hear about your Vagabond. I remember when I broke my Big Shot - it was a rough 2 weeks before I caved and replaced it! Here's hoping Santa is good to you!!

Your card is fabulous. Love the tag with the wreath around it!
