Clear Dollar Stamps August Blog Hop - A few of my favorite things

Welcome to the August Blog Hop
 for Clear Dollar Stamps!

Did you arrive here from Lisa's blog? 
If you did - you are in the right place! 
Wasn't her project amazing??? 
Lisa does the most wonderful 
Tuesday Tutorials for CDS.
 You really should check them out!

If you want to start from the very beginning click HERE.
 You won't want to miss a thing on this awesome hop!

The theme for this month's hop is My Favorite Things. 
I used a newer stamp set from CDS called Leaf Hello.
One of my favorite things is the fall season. 
This cute little set is perfect for fall greeting cards!

My other favorite things spotlighted on this card are 
Distressing, watercoloring with Distress inks, 
acorns and of course Clear Dollar Stamps stamps!

The background paper comes from My Minds Eye
 and the other paper is from Bazzil. 
More favorite things of mine!

I hope you enjoyed viewing a few of my favorite things. 
I will be sending you off to
 Karen's blog
 for another beautiful project.

Thanks for stopping and I will see you next time!
