mini blog hop!

One of my blogging buddies (I love making blog buddies!) remarked on how many lawn fawn stamps I've been accumulating (not enough, in my opinion - they're so darn cute) and wondered if I had "clear to see" in my stash. I do, I wrote back, and it hasn't seen ink yet!  What to do, except invite another friend and organize a "clear to see" mini-blog-hop!  So, here's the oh-so-extensive lineup for our lawn fawn mini-hop - hope you'll check us alllllll out, and leave some love along the way.

Elena - that's me!



Since we heard talk of early snow, I put on my cold-weather glasses for this one (groan, I know!)  I used the folded glasses from "clear to see" and stamped them repeatedly to make my own background paper.  I also stamped them to form the double "O" in "cool" onto my mat stack 4 shape.  The "c" and "l" are paper-pieced, and from "quinn's abcs". 

My winter-dude was completed with the ear-muffs and scarf from "making frosty friends."  I stamped the die shape with snowflakes from the same set, and stamped over the glasses on the background paper too. 

Thanks for looking - now hop on over to the blogs of my other cool friends ;)
