STV CSS Hop

It's that time again - the CSS Group over at Stamp TV is hopping.  This challenge/hop is all  about CAS [clean and simple] with sparkle.  Works for me! [You should be coming from  TERA's blog - if you want to see the entire list of participants, click HERE.]

For tonight's card, I used Gina K Designs, Sun-Kissed Autumn.


For my second card, I used a sentiment from Sun Kissed Autumn, along with All Occasions Tags.


I made this masculine so I can send this to my son, who currently is in Navy Boot Camp in Chicago!  He has asked me to send him something daily to break up the routine.  Works for me, I love having an actual put-it-in-the-mail reason to make cards! :)


Be sure and leave comments as you hop along!  One random winner will receive a grab bag filled with Gina K Designs products!

Okay, that is the hop for tonight.  I hope you had fun - I know I did.


Thanks for stopping by~

The Turquoise and white-colored card--the one with the punch-out running from top to bottom..........What punch is that and where did you find it. I've been searching for one similar to this for quite a while now.

They are both beautiful, but I have to say the first one really stands out to me. That is probably because turquoise is one of my favorite colors.
