Fabulous Fall Blog Hop Day #2

Welcome back for day 2 of our blog hop.
For today I made a long card 8.5 x 4 that fits into a business sized envelope.
The leaf border is cut from the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge, and the "fall" letters are stickers I got years ago. I hope you enjoy and can't wait to see you again tomorrow.

Up next on the hop is:

  6. I have lots of legal size envelopes but I really don't use them very often. (I'm not a letter writer :D) Now I can use some of them up. Thanks for the card idea.

  19. I really like the uniquesness (not sure if that's a real word, but I'm using it) of this card! The stitching looks great too. Was that done by hand? If so, what kind of pen/markers did you use? I'd like to give it a try :) Thanks for sharing :)
