ScrapFIT Color Inspiration Blog Hop!

Welcome to the ScrapFIT Color Inspiration Blog Hop!


You should have arrived here from Diana's Blog.  If you've gotten lost somewhere along the way, begin HERE at the ScrapFIT blog. We hope you're enjoying visiting the FITGirls' Blogs and seeing all of the beautiful Fall-colored cards.

We have a fun Color Inspiration to share with you!  And the twist, was that we needed to create a card, using Diana's down to earth color combination.

 
And you will have to give me a little leeway on this post because my card making skills are about negative 100%!!  :)



Since I am not an experienced card maker, I decided to keep it simple!!  I used some patterned paper from the Simple Stories Harvest Lane collection and fussy cut that cute little house shape out of one of the papers.  Two of the leaves, the Bookworm Spray Mist, and the word Fall, were included in the November FITkit, Gather, that I ordered from Paper Issues.  And of course, I had to add a little bit of splattered Mister Huey's Dark Calico mist across my card.

AND...here is where the fun comes in for you!!

I am having a little giveaway on my Blog.  You can be entered to win the Fall Kit I put together, by becoming a new Follower and commenting on this post to let me know you did.  If you are already a Follower, just leave a comment letting me know your favorite thing about Fall.  I will announce a Winner on Wednesday, November 21 .  Please leave a way for me to contact you, along with your comment.


You also have the opportunity to win an awesome prize from ScrapFIT, by visiting each Team member's Blog.  You must collect a Word at each Team Member's Blog and leave a comment at each Blog.  Once you have collected all of the words, you must unscramble them and arrange them into a sentence.  Once you think you have the sentence figured out, please email it to missy@whiddendesign.com.  By completing the Hop, leaving a comment at each of the Blogs, collecting the words, and unscrambling the sentence, you will be eligible to win a $20 Gift Certificate to Paper Issues!!  The Hop will remain open until 8PM on Monday, November 19.

The Word from my Blog:  WORTH

And don't forget, that you can Workout along with this challenge, by using the Color Inspiration and creating a Card.  Just make sure you link your Card up at the ScrapFIT Workout Blog.  You will have the chance to win the November LowCal FITkit, designed by Diana or you can head to Paper Issue's Etsy Shop and purchase one!!


Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today!  Now, you are off to visit Laurie's Blog and check out her fabulous Card!!

I know you say that you are not an experienced card maker, but it certainly doesn't show! It is beautiful! I love all the elements on your card! My favorite thing about fall is the leaves changing color... Ok and maybe all the pumpkin desserts? :) Angela at alexfam dot com
