A Feeling of Autumn

Thank you for your wonderful comments on my posts, it is so lovely to hear that so many of you enjoy seeing what I create.  If it was not for all the inspiration I get on Blogger and Tutorials I do not know if I could have progressed so much so quickly.  When I look back at my first batch of cards, which I still have, I see how much I have improved especially using dies embossing folders etc.  My journey into card making just gets better and better.

Yesterday I put two posts up in error, but you got a BOGOF, not often that happens with me I often struggle to get a card posted daily.

My card today is one that took a bit of time.  I bought the dandelion die and wanted to use it but when it come to pulling everything together my mind went blank.  I put this card with that and then another and another till I eventually pulled something together.

Mustard/Yellow Card American Crafts Cardstock Tropical

Heartfelt Creations Delicate Asters
Tattered Lace Dandelion Die
Sentiment from Kanban
Gems from stash
I commented on Heather's blog http://heatherscreationsandhappenings.blogspot.co.uk/ that I thought I had used Venetian Accents but on checking it was Vintage Lace Accents, sorry Heather.
My younger sister will love this card, NOT, it is yellow and black her most hated combination but I like it.
I finished housework and dinner preparation early today so was able to start crafting early.  Good job too as I had a project in mind to begin and it entailed a lot of die cutting with a new die.  I got there in the end so it will be shown tomorrow.  Can't spoil you two days in a row.  Seems I have my Mojo back and I am beginning to get into the swing once more.  I seemed to be in the doldrums for a while but I am in a happy place just now with lots of new goodies to play with.  Still have not got round to using Chloe's wreath stamp yet and a few other things I want to try but I will get there soon enough.  Must stop buying crafty goodies till I have played with my recent purchases.
Thank you for putting up with my ramblings and now I am off to browse your beautiful creations.
Take care out there.

  12. Oh Wilma! No need to apologise we all get things wrong me included I said I had used the bonsai tree and it was the other tree in the D Lites set. It is hard when you are trying to get a card out mistakes occur so no worries. I might have the die you mention yet another one filed away! ROFL!

    Anyway I am really loving this card that you have made sorry you struggled with it but it is so beautiful. I simply adore the colour it looks sensational with the black you used and that dandelion is gorgeous there are so many lovely stamps and dies I think we may all end up in poverty!:)

    Glad you got your mojo back hope Mum is good!
