Autumn Wishes

Finally got around to making a card! There is a fab sketch to follow over at a spoonful of sugar, so I used that for this card and some of my new craft stash that I got for my birthday! I love autumn, it is my favourite season, I love the colours, I love watching the leaves turn to all the rich beautiful colours. I like the fact the the sun still shines but there is a slight crispness in the air and it's time for all the snugly sweaters to come out! I was born in the autumn and I'm an earth sign, so maybe that has something to do with it too.

Supplies: stamp and sentiment - Whiff of Joy coloured with promarkers/ DP - Basic Grey Indian Summer/ Cardstock - Stampin' up!/ Flowers - Prima and hobbycraft/ Buttons and raffia lace from stash/ linen thread - SU/ other - distress inks for edges, shimmerz mist in baby's breath on flowers.

I'm enjoying my holiday from work, funny though 'cos you don't realise how worn out you are until you stop! Visited my dear friend Becky in Nottingham yesterday, it was great to catch up, we hadn't seen each other in ages. I couldn't believe how big their son Ewan is now (he is 4 tomorrow) and was lovely to meet baby Oliver for the first time!

Some crafty news for you, Debbie, owner of Stampeezee now has her own blog, make sure you pop over and visit as she is very talented, I have always admired her work. She will also keep you updated with what's new and happening at Stampeezee.

Thanks for looking and any comment you may leave, they always brighten my day!

Autumn wishes,
