Colours of Autumn

Hi everyone,

A quick card made this afternoon for a monthly challenge over at Joanna Sheen's craft forum:

The challenge is "Colours of Autumn".  My diecut leaves and stamen flowers are all cut with Joanna Sheen's signature dies, pretty aren't they?  I cut an aperture with a Spellbinders decorative oval die and surrounded it with the selection of leaves.  I used up some of those bits from my ever growing stash of offcuts and remnants of old kits which I am pleased about.  The background paper in the aperture and the aperture part itself are cut from an old kit from Anna Griffin as are the green leaves.  The sentiment is from an old QVC kit from many moons ago too.

Have a lovely weekend, half-term for me next week so the decorating starts tomorrow!

Christmas Decoupage

Hi everyone,

 Apologies again for not being around much, but we have been having central heating fitted and have now got the house thoroughly cleaned and furniture put back, some upheaval but it will be worth it.  Still have lots of decorating to do but that will happen later.

Here are this week's cards, (the decoupage images were cut out whilst trying to stay out of the way of the heating engineer):

The photos are not great with the light being so poor so in real life they are much more sparkly.

I intend to take part in the Docrafts hop again this week, so looking forward to seeing all the fantastic creations.

Have a lovely weekend!
