... it's now official - and the weather has certainly changed. The clear blue skies and sunshine have vanished. It's rained almost constantly for the last two days - it's been warm though. I don't mind autumn when it's cold, crisp and dry. But I do so hate those warm, muggy, grey days. Still autumn does have it's own beauty. I love to see the trees change colours and hear the wind as it blows through the trees. And there's nothing nicer than walking through piles of crisp fallen leaves - being careful, of course, not to disturb any wildlife that might be hiding there.
Party Animal. I liked the image of a guy celebrating with a glass of champagne - something that Kim is apt to do :) It also gave me the chance to try out my, at the time, new promarkers. I got them for my birthday in June. I fell in love with them immediately - I think the finish is lovely. It's a fairly quick card. The background paper coordinates with the stamp set and I added the balloons and champagne bottle for extra detail. Ben was very pleased with the card, as was I. Ben used to make his own cards, but I suppose it's one of those things that happen as boys become teenagers - he doesn't do crafty bits anymore.
Pink Petticoat pattern - can't remember which one. But they always have lovely new designs and kits - you can download the images or get them on DVD. I added personalised greetings which I did on the computer - it took a while to match the pink text to the background but it was worth the effort. To finish it all off, I added a lovely pink organza ribbon.
Bye for now. I may not get chance to post over the weekend - lots of family plans. So I'll be back on Monday. Wishing you all a good weekend.
