FALL for FWF

It's a Friday tradition: Unity's Friends with Flair blog hop! Check the Unity Stamp Co. blog for hop details and a full list of today's participants.

I'm playing along today with a versatile fall card: it could be for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or really most anything (thank you, thinking of you, birthday, etc.) the next couple of months.

I got all challenge-happy while planning out this card (I'm trying to keep up with you, Erin!). Here's what I rolled into it:
Got any good plans for the weekend? Wherever you are, I hope it's a good one! Thanks for swinging by for a little slice of bliss before you head off.

See you back here again soon!
Emily

Love your awesome stitching, the great colors and that awesome orange frame!!

Colleen Dietrich said...

THat's a neat sketch, and I love how everything is in the bottom corner for a redirected focus.

The frame is a new one to me (I barely own any Unity stamps, that's why!), and the little bits of plaid in the corners fit this fall card perfectly!
