General Store

For the progressive challenge for October at The Outlawz, I decided to create a Joyfold Card based on the tutorial at Beccy's Place.


and this is another view:



I have used two papers from a paper pad by Meg's Garden called "The Romantic Garden".  The image is the image supplied for the challenge by Createful Heart.  I coloured with copic markers.  I also added a vintage teapot tag embellishment.

Falling Leaves

We have yet another day of rain here today.  Normally I wouldn't mind but it is causing a delay to our swimming season!

Warm Wishes

October has been a very hectic month for me - so much so that I haven't had much crafty time.  I took some time this morning to create this card - for my sanity if nothing else!

A Haunting We Will Go

Since we are the month of October, I have created a Halloween themed project for the Anything Goes challenge at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.  This challenge we are sponsored by Kitty Bee Designs and Lemon Shortbread.




I have used an image from Kitty Bee Designs called Pumpkin Panda.


I also used a digital paper from Polka Doodles, some white web ribbon, some tombstones die cut from black cardstock with a Spellbinders die, and some Halloween embellishments that I received in a card swap.

Football Season

I used to play football - some years back (don't like to think how many years back it was!!!).  My favourite team was Liverpool so I coloured this image in their team colours.

Autumn Leaves

I've been away with no internet and then spent the past few days since I've been back with my daughter who is home for the holidays.  In between times, I'm working through my e-mails too.  But what I've really wanted to do was craft!  This morning, I managed to find time to create a few cards!
