Autumn Breeze.

I'm a bit surprised at how quickly this card came together. I spent ages looking at the Basic Grey Indian Summer papers because I wanted to do a couple of Fall/Autumn challenges but somehow I couldn't find the effect I wanted! Then I settled on some MME bloom and grow papers. Not sure if they are right for autumn but they fit with what I had in mind lol! I edged the papers in frayed burlap and antique linen Ditress Inks and also added faux stitching. I used Promarkers to colour this sweet image from the Whiff of Joy Fall set. As embellishments I added a flower, a leaf and a button. The leaf was cut out using a Martha Stewart punch.

I am planning to enter a few challenges with this card:-

Crafty Cardmakers:- Sketch
Whimsy:- Autumn (Fall) colours.
A Spoon Full of Sugar:- Autumn.
http://lalalandcrafts.blogspot.com/:- 3 different embellishments - a flower, a leaf and a button.
Simon Says Challenge:- 3 embellishments, 2 papers and 1 image.
Stamp Something:- Favourite colours or papers - favourite papers - MME bloom and grow.

It's a beautiful morning here in Aberdeenshire. The kind of morning that makes you glad to have dogs to walk and washing to hang out lol! I seem to have a small problem uploading images this morning so I am going to leave this just now and come back to it later.

Everything seems fine now so I have uploaded my photo and now I need to go off and enter the challenges before I forget!! My daughter has been brushing one very hairy chocolate Labrador and now she (the dog) is lying down tired -poor thing - because she had a daft turn and started running about as only a Lab can. You know how they do it back legs in front of the front legs they are going so fast.

Hope you are all having this gorgeous sunny weather today, for September it is really fantastic. And what am I going to do now - well carry on crafting of course cos tomorrow is a full day at work and then I am out in the evening for a couple of hours at the Guild. I might manage another post later if I can get another card done before the light goes.

Enjoy your Sunday.
