autumn leaves...

are all over my back yard..Orange, gold, ochre and red as far as the eye can see. They blanket the ground, and hide the grass...The breeze coaxes the leaves from their branches; they swirl down from the trees and join the others on the ground. A spectacular fall heart is happy..We will not rake the leaves yet, they shall stay there in their gorgeous's a futile effort anyways, there are more leaves waiting to fall...
This card was the last of the set that I was making for my cousin. I have to say it was the most fun to make as well.. I had the little raffle ticket sitting in my stash for the longest while..and had the perfect opportunity to use it. I tried to make the background papers mimic a quilt, with all the patches and stitching..a mixture of Melissa Frances papers, The Girl's Paperie(how I adore their papers!)P.T.I patterned paper as well. Of course I had to use my favourite embellishments-buttons. It helps tie in with the theme I was going for. 
I also made sure to add a doily and a flower to my card so I could play along with the CCCB challenge this week that Ros has set out... It's good to be getting back into challenges and sketch sites!
Here's a peek at the set I excitedly sent out in the mail today. I hope Bibi enjoys them as much as I enjoyed creating them for her.

Til next time friends,

  7. As I mentioned to Becky when I asked her to make these cards, I moved away over ten years ago from a small town where I had lots of girlfriends - one of the special groups was our Stitch & Chat group. We had met every Monday night for ten years, chatting about kids, family, life etc while we cross-stitched, quilted, knitted... I hate to part with these cards but I know they will be appreciated for the beautiful art that they are. Thanks Rebecca,


Thanks for visiting and leaving some love! I appreciate it a lot!! :D
