Seasons Change. . . . . . . . . .


Good morning blogging chums. Hope you are all as well as you can be and that you haven't been affected by these bad winds (no vindaloo jokes please lol!!!)
Its been great for drying the washing but there's always that element of worry that my smalls are going to end up in a different postal code.

Thank you for your kind comments on my raindrops on roses. It seems a popular theme at the challenge so hope you will join in.

Now, today's card is CAS for me and one I made for Nesta (still sunning herself near Malaga at last contact) a few weeks ago as I hadn't seen her for a while due to work............boy, does it interfere with your social life something terrible hahaha!

I used the leaves that I had cut for the aperture on the base rather than just inking the base card as I wanted the texture from the embossing on the leaves.


Ingredients
Cream card
Lime green card
SB Foliage die
Hougie for the embossed lines (just in an "L" shape rather than all around)
John Lockwood Rosebud Elements stamp set (for the beautiful sentiment)
Variety of orange, green and brown distress inks and Mementos
Teeny bling


For the sentiment, I decided to go a bit off piste (I know folk will be doing a double take with that word like I did with Nattyboots "itis" last time lol!!!) and used some green and brown shades of Mementos to dab at random on the stamp to give a graduated look, if that makes sense?

As for my "itis", its still in evidence as it usually takes a couple of weeks to shift to a comfortable level. I know its been due to stretching at work as the set up for stock storage is different at the new store...........and yes, I am chasing getting it changed lol!!!

Well, that's me done for now. Busy times at work again on the run up to the festive season so please bear with my random visits at silly times at night lol!!!
Enjoy the rest of the week folks and be good.

TTFN

    I do like the autumnal colours you have used here. I must say I like to stamp in different shades of ink it makes it more interesting.
    The winds have died down here although our wheelie bin decided to go for a walk down the street last night ...lol..

    Take care xxx

  25. I will NOT be good, Ang, and you can't make me, neener neener! What I can be is mega-impressed by this exquisite fall card for your friend! It's truly stunning and I'm pinning it! And your random dabber-daubing of ink to create that coordinating gorgeous sediment is nothing short of brilliant! I'm throwing out my fancy multi-colored pads which always leave a stupid straight line between colors anyway! You taught me new schtuff today! So kewl!! Now do take a teasy when you can at work so you don't overdo. Big hugs that your itis goes underground soon and for ever such a long time!! Darnell
