Oldie For Friday. . . . . . . . .Autumn

Good morning one and all. How's it hanging? Well I hope.

Are we all making the most of this wisp of warm sunshine before colder days set in? Its sad to watch the leaves falling from the trees on a warm day.

I managed to get out with some friends for lunch on Wednesday. It was a birthday gathering and it was so wonderful to meet up with everyone as I hadn't seen some of them for about 5 months. Anticoagulation clinic this morning but I'm guessing its just a check on how its going rather than a poking and prodding session.

Now, I know I said I would show Davey's birthday card from us next but I couldn't resist doing the Friday Oldie thing with one of my favourite cards as we have now officially entered Autumn.
It's not quite a year old but it was one of those cards that make you do a little happy dance as it turns out just as you wanted it to.

The original blog post is here with the ingredients and description of what I did.

Sometimes, less is more. 

I made the card for Nesta, and she still has it (along with all the cards I have made for her bless her.

Well, the nights are chilling down a bit but Jackie, fire on before November. . . . .Noooooooo! no matter how much Mr D begs lol!!
Karen, I don't think my old laptop could cope with having Serif on it, lol!!! My curved printed sentiment was done in Works.
Sandy, (confusing as there are now 2 Sandy's visiting lol!) thank you for your lovely comment. My friend works for Creative Expressions and I'm waiting for him to get back to me about US stockists of that embossing folder so I will answer as soon as I know.

Happy Autumn folks and hope you have a wonderful weekend, whatever you are up to and I'll be back with Davey's card, part 2 next time.

Be good.

  3. Good morning Ang I remember this card mainly because of the lovely sentiment. Glad you have been able to get out this week and meet up with your friends. I did have good reason for the fire on, with the floor screeding a couple of days ago and the rest of the plastering having been done a dehumidifier is helping as there hasn't been much sunshine to warm the place up this week. Hope you have a good weekend, I might go and see Bridget Jones' baby, love from Jackie xx

  9. Hi Ang, great autumnal card....and you are so right "less is more". Weather here in Kent today is lovely sunny & warm. It will be a shock to the system when the cold returns!!. Thanks for the crochet's in the pile of "must do!!!". Janice xx

  10. Maybe the second time around but still a very lovely card and love how you have used the same colours in the sentiment.
    Do hope you are feeling much better. Sorry I haven't been around much lately but life gets in the way.

  16. WOW! I just love this, it's simplicity, the colours and that beautiful sentiment. You must have posted the "original" when I was on holiday where the internet connection was dire becuase I don't see my name on the original post - sorry.
    I hope the visit to anti-coagulant went OK My son used to have to go every couple of days to have his INR (I think that's what they were measuring!) levels checked So hopefully you won't have to go too often and that your visits to A&E are a lot less frequent xx

  17. Hi Ang

    I love this card. The simplicity of it and the colour ways are so beautiful. The sentiment too is very touching
