Perfect Paper Crafting/The Craft's Meow Blog Hop


 Good morning, folks!  Welcome to your last stop on the Perfect Paper Crafting/The Craft's Meow Blog Hop!  You should've arrived here by way of the sweet and talented Larissa Heskett!


As you have read, there are TWO $50 Gift Certificates to be won... one from Perfect Paper Crafting and one from The Craft's Meow.  All you have to do is comment along the hop from now until Friday at midnight PST!  Winners will be randomly selected by each of the stores from all comments left on hop.  

The Craft's Meow is currently having a HUGE SALE on retiring stamp sets!   Perfect Paper Crafting is offering a 5% discount on their tools for our blog hoppers, too. The code to enter at checkout is meow5%

On my card today, I used one of The Craft's Meow stamp sets that's on sale right now...Speaking of Fall!   LOVE this set!  If you love it, better grab it before it's sold out!  I also used one of the fabulous Perfect Layers Border Tools...check out the wonderful tutorial videos that show you these tools in action!


There's a new COLOR CHALLENGE over at The Pink Elephant today, too!  Grab your ORANGE, BROWN, and CREAM and join us for a "fall finale!"  This will most likely be my last fall-themed card of the season...time to hit the Christmas crafting at full speed!  


Here are a couple of other challenges that suited my fancy for this THANKFUL card...Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #237 and the Deconstructed Sketch #127!



I used the Perfect Layers Border Tool #2 to cut the panel of my card front as well as the 1/4" and 5/8" strips to create my "stick/spindle" tree background!  This tool is really cool and I love having a handy straight edge nearby for trimming such slender paper slivers!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
