Wet ,Windy ,Wild ... Winter !

Well another weekend of working which means I've not a lot of spare time so thought I'd do a quick post tonight in between making dinner!...lets hope I dont get too distracted and burn it! I'm still ahead with the Christmas card making I thought I'd share another one with you this evening. I have finished the autumn card I was making during the week and even made a tag too;but will save that for another day, tonight's card is using a sweet Wild Rose Studio stamp and papers which where free with a  magazine, she was a joy to colour and makes a sweet card I think .The trickiest part was the flowers as I wanted to add the stamens; heat embossing and colouring the stamens was very fiddly but I  think it was worth it.
