Autumn Whimsy..

Evening all!

It's strange for me to be posting on an evening! welll... i'm back at work now boo hiss!! but in 7 weeks time i have another 2 weeks off with my hubby so looking forward to that! it'll soon fly by!




I've been playing with some of my new stamps which i had for my birthday including the lovely Autumn Charlotte from Whiff Of Joy! I must say i've used the fantastic new fine nibs from leteraset for the promarkers in this image and i absolutly adore them! fantastic creation whom ever thought of it!

 I was challenged by my buddy Shannon, to create a card that had no magnolia, no cuteness, no glitter and no pink! oh and i had to use a marianne die! i must admit in my first attempt i cheated so wanted to give the challenge another go!

My card today has lots of elements to it including lots of swirlys that i adore yet haven't been able to use the die because i couldn't get the flaming card stock out of it, so i brought some ejection foam and walla!!! it worked a treat and i'm thrilled i can finally use my die!
 I've even managed to sqeeze my favourite flowers in from wild orchid crafts i love the vibrant wild roses espech in orange (stock running low now) so need to order! hehe but ssssh dont tell hubby!
 I've this thing that i love different unusual sentiments, not the wording the actual sentiment itself, i had a massive box full of all different sentiment things for a wide range of occasions, and was thrilled to find my american crafts no holes buttons which i purchased yonks ago (like everything else) haha and thought it went with my card just perfectly!

I've even dug out my trust prima leaves, i don't tend to use these often mainly because i totally forget what i actually have up in that craft studio! but love the colours and they matched my card so well!

Have you noticed the colour combo!!?!? totally love it and totally not me but i really like it, think i'll be using this one again! I've used these tiny little cute spotty and non spotty buttons from papermania something i brought on a whim and never got round to actually using them.... again the same with the little bow!

The metal corners i've sadly ran out of so if anyone knows where i can buy more i'd be really grateful as far as i know they're from we are memory keepers my last little too! i love the fact they have a tiny indent on them so you can add a little gem in the corners!

I've also (my gosh a long post) used my new Recollections punch which i bagged in a bargain a few weeks ago at QVC shop near me i got three border punches for about £11!!! Lush ribbons are from poppicrafts, i wish michelle would reopen the shop i miss poppicrafts they were my fav for ribbon and little bits and bobs!!

Anyways enough of me rabbiting i've an anniversary card to get made for me and hubbys 1st anniversary on sunday! Yep i can hardly believe it's gone that quick!!!
