Welcome Paper Issues Blog Hoppers!

Hi friends!
Today is an exciting day! Today kicks off our fabulous Paper Issues blog hop AND a new 'Issue'...(for those of you hopping along in order, this is old news, but for those of you just joining us...)


If you're hopping over from The fabulous Polka Cabana...welcome to you! And if you're just getting started here at Ribbon, Glitter and Glue, be sure to hop over to the Paper Issues blog for the complete list of blogs that you'll want to visit this weekend. Believe me, you won't want to miss seeing any of the amazing projects by this super creative team and you don't want to miss out on any of the fun giveaways that are being offered up along the way!!

For my little stop on the hop, here's the card I was inspired to create...

I love fall. I love everything about this season. Colorful leaves. Pumpkin patches. Chunky sweaters. Starbucks Salted Caramel Mochas and Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Season Premieres. Crisp, sunny days. Sunflowers, Mums and Rosehips. Anniversaries. Did I mention that today is also a happy day because hubby & I are celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary?!? Another reason I love fall! (And I digress...)
FALL! It's a season full of so much's a colorful, yummy smelling, bountiful, blessed season.

To create this card I used new patterned paper and a sticker from the super cute American Crafts Night Fall collection, some new Thickers from the lovely Amy Tangerine collection, some of my favorite Lily Bee alphas, some twine from The Twinery and a darling button from Doodlebug. I really love the traditional fall colors of orange, brown and yellow with a bit of light blue tossed about you?

To celebrate this blog hop and kick-off fall, I'm offering up a little giveaway to one of you, my dear readers! I have a $10.00 Paper Issues gift certificate up for grabs!!
(Have you checked out the Paper Issues shop recently? So much goodness there.)

For a chance to win, all you need to do is leave me a comment! Simple, eh? On Monday I'll choose a random winner. Also, if you're not a 'Follower' of Ribbon, Glitter and Glue, I'd really love for you to become one. Start following my blog & leave me another comment telling me you did that and I'll put your name in the hat twice!

Now, let's get on with this hop, shall we? For the next inspiring stop, hop on over and visit the fantastic Corri Garza at Bug Lover Cards.
