Cloud 9 Blog Hop {September}


Eeeeekkk!  I almost didn't make it!  It {was} time for the September Cloud 9 Blog Hop and I did get something made but almost forgot to get it linked up in time!  And then my post....well, I left it in draft and unscheduled.  Guess that's what I get for having a busy start to the week!  So here is an updated version of my post!  ha!
 
This month's Cloud 9 blog hop was an inspiration photo of this beautiful outdoor scene.  I was inspired by the tree and the hanging birdhouses.  I knew right away what set I wanted to use!  I've been trending toward the less=more kinda card.  I like how this turned out; however, my photo doesn't show the lighter clouds very well.  Those cloud stamps are SOO fun....love how Dawn illustrated them with little dots!
