Favorite Ever Blog Hop & Giveaway

Graciellie Design is have a super fun blog hop today!! Each designer picked two of her favorite stamp sets to showcase. My two picks where Sending Kindness and Stay Cozy.

I'm not sure if these are my favorite EVER sets, but since we couldn't just say "All of them!" I chose two with autumn in mind. 

Gracie is having two special promotions:
Giveaway: $15 Gift Card (Leave a comment on each blog in the hop to be entered)
Favorite Ever SALE: ALL the stamp sets chosen by each designer as their favorite will be 40% OFF this week only! (No code needed.)

Supplies and Tools on Card Number One:

While the first card reminds me of autumn pear picking time, 
the second one has an even more distinctive "fall flavor!"

I had fun splashing colorburst around to create both the background and the pumpkin!

Supplies and tools:

I hope you'll enjoy hopping along today, and viewing the design teams projects using their
 all-time-favorite Graciellie Stamp Sets!
