Autumn Colours

Hi everyone,

I hope you are well and enjoying your Autumn it is one of my favourite seasons, its spring here though so a while to go for our autumn.

At Midweek Magnolias #73 the challenge is Autumn Colours..

My card features "Welcome to a lovely Home" (Sweet crazy Love Collection) I have used the Clouds  from this stamp many times so I thought why not use the whole stamp, it looks a really cozy little place to live, if only I were small enough lol.

The DP's are PION 'Vintage Garden' & "Waiting for Santa' the last one you can only just see, the card stock is American Craft, I have used Copic markers for the colouring, The lace is from Paper2, with Spellbinders Dies "Fall Foliage" for the leaves which I have edged with Kaisercraft Brown ink to 'age' the leaves a little, lemon ribbon from my stash with Ranger Stickles Platinum and Copper to add sparkle (can't live without sparkle in my life)



As a thought I have used FlowerSoft for the autumn foliage on the tree and little 'spots' of it in front of the fence to represent fallen leaves, I think it works okay!

Sweet Sparkle - Wee Stamp

Hi everyone,

As usual its been a busy week, we had our daughter's birthday last Saturday, Sunday we went to the Paperific Expo and gathered lots of goodies that had to be paid for, hey isn't that what money is for LOL.

I worked at the Paediatrician's all day yesterday and my head really hurt when I got home just before 6pm, not sure about this working lark!!!  I should be retired ha, ha I am old enough..

Anyway, I have made a really simple card to enter the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog 




"Sweet Sparkle"

This is a really simple card, I have used a Wee Digi Stamp "Sweet Sparkle" she is so easy to colour using my Copic markers, Kaisercraft card stock which I cut into shape with Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Big Scalloped Circles.  I added a large ribbon bow (my stash) with an Adam Pescott sentiment stamp.  Obviously being me she has lots of Ranger Star Dust stickles..  

Sorry the photo looks a bit out of kilter, not my best effort, oops!

Until next time, take care,


Book Page cards

Hello, I recently watched a youtube video using old book pages! I've torn pages out of a book I'd read but didn't like, so...
