I've went all out for a multi layered look card; I couldn't resist all the nice bits and bobs I had in my stash to create an autumnal card. I've had a HOTP tag art book lying around and gathering dust for ages which I have never used before. I used a sweet floral one for my card. I wasn't sure if or how I’d use the tags now I do. The Tilda is an older one and I think its ‘April showers’ although I think it works for our usual wet autumn weather..like today! I enjoyed using the browns and peach tones which is another first for me.
I had no time this weekend for Christmas cards but I did get some stamping done, so will start colouring, my next card will be a Christmas card. We did the garden yesterday,cutting everything back and generally clearing everything; its my least favourite time of the year in the garden...it looks sad and empty...although it has to be done so we can enjoy it next year, although I woke up this morning stiff and ache everywhere…I think I might have over done it slightly but off to work later so need to go, get this posted and get ready for work.
On a final note I would lie to say a big thank you to everyone who made kind comments on my Christmas card worry, I get the message loud and clear…It’s the thought and love that counts and any I do manage to make this year I will give to family and friends and stop being such a worrier …so thank you everyone your comments are very encouraging and will keep me motivated…Have a good week everyone…x
