GinaK Designs "So Grateful"


Here is a little fall inspiration for you today.  I know I said I was going to post a Christmas gift set, but I totally forgot that I had pushed that one forward for a "Gift's Galore" blog hop with Layers of Color in November.  Sorry.  Hope you like this one instead!  And I hope you are enjoying some fall like weather in your neck of the woods.  It was 97 here today!  Seriously.  Well, I do hate cold weather and while some of you were shopping for winter wear this weekend ....  I was laying out in the sun!

This is a REALLY cute fall set that I bought over a year ago called "So Grateful".   It comes with an apple card, pumpkins, and the cutest acorn border.  GinaK has another fall set I have as well.  It's called "Autumn Beauty".  So if you are still on the hunt for some fall images ..  hop over and check them out!

Have a great day!!
Hugs,
Melisa

And here are a few other cards I made a long time ago using these sets.  And even though I'm not crazy about them, maybe you will be inspired by the images.  The photo's are old as well, I tried to fix them up a little.
