Welcome friends, It's time once again for the monthly Gentlemen Crafters Design Team Blog Hop. The Gentlemen Crafters Design Team (#TGCDT) are a group of male crafters & Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world, that love to share our creative side with you on the 2nd Friday of each month. Be sure to visit all the presenters in this month's hop - links can be found at the bottom of this post.

The temperature here in Atlantic Canada has taken a sudden dip as we enter the Fall season. Frost comes almost nightly now, and the leaves are changing colour. The fields are ripe for harvest with pears, apples, pumpkins, squash, corn, gourds and every other kind of produce you can imagine. Indeed, you can't drive more than a half hour anywhere in Nova Scotia and not run into a roadside stand or farm market celebrating the bountiful harvest.  I am lucky to live just 20 minutes from where the video below was shot - this is what I see on my daily drives this time of year.

So it seems only fitting I feature the splendid "Hello Harvest Bundle" and the "Rustic Harvest" Designer Series Paper in my project this month.  I have been creating all sorts of cards with this set for upcoming events and classes, and I am having a great deal of fun - I may come back in a bit and update this post with more card samples, but not until my events take place, so please be patient. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this simple but elegantly beautiful card, and I hope you consider creating something with the Hello Harvest bundle yourself.
