The Heart Desires & Fall Coffee Hop!

Fall is definitely here, and one of the many things we have to look forward to is the Coffee Loving Cardmakers hop!  So many prizes, and fun to be had by all!

 fall-hop-with-date

I'm so happy to have made TWO cards yesterday... The Heart Desires September inspiration was the impetus:


I LOve the colors, and those stripes get me EVERY time!  I may just be back with another using the sketch ... which I totally forgot this time ... oops!  Leaving it 'sentiment-less' was intentional, however =]

An adored little gift from a special friend, that MFT mini fringe is SO fun!
SSS provides the blooms, paint chips provide the colors!
 
Up next:
 
 
I think you'll be able to figure out which card goes to which challenge, right?
 
Have a great Saturday... see you at the Hop!
 
=]  Michele

Two real cuties, Michele! LOVE those stripes, and those flowers. So darn clever to be 'handed' a cup of coffee, too. Pretty sure you've got a winner or two here. Fabulous cards. How's the new house? Settled yet, or still getting there? Enjoy. Bev

Sweet cards Michele, I particularly love the first with that little weave of paper through the grass.

Oh Michele!! I LOVE that you used the fringe for GRASS!! Going to have to use this trick now!! I love the way you used the hand at the bottom with the cup inside. Totally fabulous design!

Patti said...
