New Product Blog Hop

It's that time of year! Time for a NEW Annual Inspirations Book! Fun! Fun! Fun! 
This  hop will feature anything new from the Annual Inspirations Book! Let's go!

If you arrived from Haley Dyer's blog you're on the right path. Just click the links at the end of the post to continue along the hop!

I couldn't wait to get inky with the Nature's Wish stamp set! I had two masculine birthdays coming up  that I bought this set for specifically! Big time outdoorsmen! Of course it was a no-brainer to pair it up with the new Rustic Home paper that looks like wood. Add the new twine as an accent and that's about all it took. TIP: On the bottom you see the twine as it comes in the package. I cut it in half lengthwise for the top trim to make it narrower. Very easy to do!

For the inside of the card I did a 2nd generation image of the trees. I stamped the sentiment on top and the trees made a nice background.
