Parts of the world are suffering so much with the disasterous
weather conditions.

Die Cuts Only

I do have lots of shaped dies, for matting and adding layers.
Hence my very geometrical diesigned card.
I recently bought a set of nesting square dies, this is
the result of my playtime. Hope you like it.

Autumn Colours


Hello, sending my love and best wishes to all my crafty
friends in Texas and Florida following the dreadful weather
conditions they have suffered over the last few weeks. 
Today we begin a new challenge at Make My Monday. 
Sue has chosen Autumn Colours - we in the UK are at the
beginning of our Autumn season, it is already colder and 
it gets dark so early. The Autumn colours bring an extra warmth.
Please pop and see the designs from the DT, they again have 
some wonderful inspiration for you to see.
I kept my card simple, several layers, of black and orange,
 to accent the main stamped image, which is a stunning
wooden stamp I recently bought for £1 at a craft event.
When I started stamping it was mostly with wooden stamps,
I still love them and like to rescue some of the good old ones
when I get a chance.  The only information on the stamp is
it is American. 
I have coloured the fruity Autumnal wreath with Promarkers. 
Have fun using your beautiful colours for the Autumn.
