Blog Hop for Melanie's newest set " Hip to be Square" from Gina K

Good evening!  Welcome and hope you enjoy the cards here for tonight's blog hop!  Have made so many cards with this set, these are just a few! ..hope something here inspires you !!
Since there are several cards here and many "stops" on the blog hop, have just quickly provided each card's details!


This card came to me watching the trees around our yard. Here in Virginia, the leaves are turning colors and blowing in the wind - leaving some trees bare, some are still full and some are all different colors!  Beautiful time of the year! also used Melanie's "A Year of Leaves"...

Hi Linda,
These cards are all gorgeous but I especially like the first one with the autumn leaves. I love this time of year as the trees begin to change colour before the leaves fall. A manifestation of the majesty of God's creation.
Hugs,
