Hi my name is Maria Gurnsey and I am addicted to October Afternoon Paper!
Seriously people...everytime I enter my craft room I can't help but use the new paper. I even tried really hard for today's Hip Hop card. I got out some Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket but ended up not using them.
For today's Hop Hop card I used was inspired by the cover of the new Country Living magazine that I still have yet to read. This is the photo that is on the cover. I wish I had a porch like this!!!
I used the {ippity} sets
and
It's hard to tell but I stamped the burlap on the red with red ink for some texture. This stamp is a must have!!
All three of these sets are on sale on my {SALES BLOG} until the end of the month.
Now make sure you hop on over to the {ippity} blog...the fabulous Eryn has a fun tutorial you won't want to miss!
