Creativity is a central source of meaning in our lives---when we are involved in it, we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life.

September CSS Blog Hop with Something Special

Hello, and welcome to a special hop  -- a color combination challenge blog hop hosted by members of the Gina K. CSS Alumni team, which is also featuring hand drawn sets designed by Melanie Muenchinger and Theresa Momber. As you hop along make sure to leave a comment because on Tuesday morning (September 25), we will randomly choose two comments from all the blogs and two lucky individuals will each receive a Gina K. Designs Stamp Set (the winners will receive either a set designed by Melanie Muenchinger or Theresa Momber).

I hope you arrived here from the blog of the very talented Joy. If you didn't and would like to start the hop from the beginning, you can go to Stamp TV for the full list of participants.

I have two cards to share with you and both are made using stamp sets that were drawn by Theresa Momber. I chose to use Fanciful Fall and Heartfelt, both of which include stamps that are perfect for fall cards. I love fall, especially the colors, so I was super excited to combine these fabulous stamp sets with Sharri's color challenge, which was to use the Gina K Designs Pure Luxury colors of Pumpkin Spice, Fresh Asparagus and Sweet Corn plus neutral colors (white, ivory, black, and brown).

Here is my first card using Fanciful Fall.

Now for the second card featuring Heartfelt

I adore all of Theresa's sets, but these two are definitely among my favorites. She creates such beautiful stamp sets and, if you haven't seen her gorgeous cards be sure to visit her blog to enjoy her works of art (and to learn from her fabulous tutorials!).

Now hop on along to see what the always inspiring and talented Linda has waiting for you. Enjoy!
