Special Gina K. Blog Hop ~ A Year Of Leaves!!!!!!!!

Smiley from

It's Autumn!!!! Well, at least it is on my mountain!!! Some beautiful overcast days and chilly nights and a bit of early yellowing on all our Aspen trees!!!! That puts me in the mood more than ever to make Fall projects!!! Tonite is a special Gina K. Designs hop putting the ever talented and amazing Melanie in the spotlight!!!

I sooooooooo love A Year Of Leaves by Melanie's just so.........well..........AUTUMN!!!!!!! LOL I really wanted to showcase the gorgeous leaf images, so I decided for a fairly CAS card. I also got to practice my Copic coloring! I really hope someday I can find a Copic Certification class and reallllllllly learn how to use these cool markers!! I used all Gina K. Pure Luxury cardstock.........Pumpkin Spice, Green Apple, Black Onyx and the White. I hope you enjoy this hop full of beautiful Autumn goodness and inspiration!!!!

For even more inspiration, please visit our Illustrator of the Year of Leaves stamp set, Melanie Muenchinger's blog. You'll want to leave a comment on her blog because she is hosting a drawing for her gorgeous stamp set there tonight!
