sending hugs {cardmaker blog hop}

Hi there!

Some of the lawn fawn girls are joining the cardmaker blog team for a fun blog hop.  No rules, no theme, just a fawnie good time with a prize at the end :)

leafy hugs.

I stamped myself an entire background with our sharp backdrops, and die-cut a leaf  (from blissful botanicals) into what I eyeballed to be the middle...

leafy hugs.

I backed the focal mat in a brighter pink, and adhered the leaf-stems-only to the base.  I love the little pop of color!

leafy hugs.

The sentiment (from so much to say) was embossed onto a banner flag and adhered with a little strip of pink lemonade twine.  

Hope you are having a good day! hugs! Here's a list of the rest of the hop stops:
