Stamp TV's CSS Alumni Blog Hop

WOW - cant believe this past month has flown by and here we are with another STV Alumni Blog Hop!
you should have arrived here from Kay's beautiful Blog . But if you didnt and you want to start at the beginning, then pop over to STV's Forum .
For this hop, we were given this wonderful inspiration photo from Better Homes & Garden! ohhhhh soooooo many ideas!

i opted for the inspiration of CIRCLES - and the GKD set that immediately came to mind is Melanie Muenchinger's "Year Round Fun"...this set is going to stay out and will be my "finish off" card for this year...(that's the card I need to have that's quick n easy)...PLUS this one lets me use those little scraps - I will be punching them into different size circles and will be stamping my stash designer paper with the main image as I go along...
looks like I will have my cards all ready by Thanksgiving after all (-:

here you go! just plain good ole stampin fun!!



I entered the last one in the  Championing Award Medallions Challenge in the Moxie Fab World challenge since I used a handcrimped medallion on that one (topped with glitter snowflakes)

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (November 22nd), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!

Now your next hop is over to Lori's amazing blog

Hope you enjoy and have been inspired,
hugs,

ink: Color Box Strawberry, Artichoke, Licorice, SU Craft White and heat embossed
copics: R29, YG63
