Sean & Regina's August Blog Hop


WELCOME TO THE AUGUST BLOG HOP!

Hi everyone!  Thanks for playing along in our August blog hop!  The Blog Hop with Sean and Regina is featuring cards and sentiments celebrating the fall season this month! After a very hot and humid July, most of us are looking forward to a cool and colorful fall! When we think of fall, our minds swirl like we are surrounded by falling leaves and a crisp cool breeze in the air. Each host/hostess will have a card creation posted that is his/her representation of what fall means to them.    


Scrapbook Stamp Society is our blog hop sponsor!  The overall winner will receive digi’s from our sponsor.  Please visit them at http://scrapbookstampsociety.com/index.php?! Also some of our blog hop host/hostess designers will be offering blog candy as prizes on their blog sites, so please do not forget to visit all the blogs (and leave a comment) to be eligible for bonus blog hop prizes!

 My card is A2 size. I used a base of light brown and added a dark brown background embossed with the Diamond Pattern embossing folder. The image is from Dearie Dolls and the sentiment is from My Grafico.
I cut the edges of the sentiment with a square punch and sponged the edges with Memento Dessert Sands ink and added brads to hold the sentiment in place. The image itself is cut and embossed with Spellbinders oval die cuts. I faux stitched the oval with a fine point black marker and added some punched oak and maple leaves in various colors.

Now it is your turn to blog hop with all of our friends!  The rules are simple:

1.     Leave a comment on Regina’s blog first (and become a follower to enter a chance to win the grand prize from Scrapbook Stamp Society!  

2.     Go down the list of blogs visiting all of them (see below).  Leave comments on their blog pages to be eligible for bonus blog candy from select blog hosts. The blog hop host/hostee offering bonus blog candy will indicate that he/she has a bonus blog candy prize so read their blog post carefully.  Each blog will have the name and blog address for the next host/hostess in line for the blog hop.  Our number 2 on the list is Regina at http://cardsbyregina.blogspot.com (The next blog will be Regina’s and so on).

3.     At the end of the hop, a random winner will be chosen for the Blog Hop prize from our sponsor and select blog hop hosts for Bonus Blog Candy.  The deadline for leaving comments is Monday, August 20, 2012 at 8pm CST.   Winners of the Grand Prize and bonus Blog Candy will be announced Tuesday, August 21, 2012.

The Blog Hop with Sean and Regina participants are as follows:
