Autumn 2010

Afternoon everyone.
Firstly i have to make a small apology for the lack of posts for a week. I have had a hard time with my M.E over the week.
But have finally managed to sit down and join in with the belles n whistles first challenge on their new blog. They have some amazing candy up for grabs for the winner. Oh did i say "winner", i meant winners, yes winners, there will be 2 winners how cool is that?!

The sentiment is a stamp and die set found HERE. I love this set and havent seen anything like it, so versatile. The orange and leaf border and background of the sentiment is handmade. I took a piece of plain white thin cardstock and coloured it using a distress ink spiced marmalade. The leaf stamp is from a set by stampin up called lovely as a tree. I stamped it using memento coco ink. The punched edge was done using martha stewart doily lace punch.

Flower is a Marianna design set LR0110.

The charm "made with love" can be found at bunny zoes. Ribbon is from my stash made with the bow-easy. I added a 10mm orange rose from wild orchid crafts to the middle.

Image is a belles n whistles stamp called beary big hugs. I have coloured the image with distress inks.

I have distressed all the edges with a distress tool. The DP`s are from Bo Bunny, kitchen spice rosemary and kitchen spice nutmeg.
