The Craft's Meow's October Blog Hop

Welcome to The Craft's Meow's October Blog Hop. Our theme this month is FALL/AUTUMN. We are definitely enjoying fall here in Croatia. Sometimes it feels like it's ready to jump straight to Winter! It's been chilly early in the morning. If you came from Lin Brandyberry's blog, then you're at the right spot. Please check the TCM blog for the complete list.

I have a simple card today. I used the brand new Speaking of Fall, which you can get for free with $60 purchase this month! I made my own background by doing the 2-step stamping and random stamping of the dots in a subtle color. I inked the edges and stitched around the stamped panel.

The focal point is a tag stamped with the subway art that came with the Speaking of Fall stamp set. It's embellished with a fussy cut leaf, brown lace and coordinating twine.
