Cornish Heritage Farms Blog Hop


Hello, and welcome to week 3 of the Cornish Heritage Farms Summer Fling Blog Hop!

This week we're featuring All Things Considered a/k/a the ATC collection. All ATC stamp sets are on sale 25% off until Thursday at midnight.


I made my card using stamps from the Fall Harvest set and a sentiment from Cursive Expressions. I made the rosette by just accordian folding the crepe paper in a ring and then using a stapler to secure it together. Crepe paper is light but very sturdy. Perfect for cards!

If you're following the hop you should have come here from Tracy's blog. If not, you can go back and to the beginning and start at the Be Creative blog. Follow the hop and leave comments for a chance at a random draw to the CHF store for either a $10 or $20 gift certificate. Add your own creation to the ATC Special Gallery for a chance to win the stamp set of your choice up to a $16.99 value.

Next up on the hop is Melony.
