.... the challenge at For Your Inspiration for the next two weeks is this wonderful autumnal photo. Stunning!!
This one was about as easy as it gets. I have a super stamp which feature falling leaves - and the picture above just brought it to mind. So I had a rummage and inked it up with a lush red ink and stamped it out. I used my square nesties to cut the image out and to make a suitable mat - dark green to echo the other trees in the image. I felt this would make a perfect sympathy card, so I added a lovely sentiment from Irish Blessings. Finally, I punched out a few leaves and added them to the card.
Stamps: Penny Black - Japanese Maple; Waltzingmouse - Irish Blessings
Inks: Distress - Barn Door, Fired Brick, Rusty Hinge; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Spellbinders: Classic Squares Lg (S4-126) die #7
Accessories: Martha Stewart punch; Card from stash
Last night's performance by Kathryn and her friends at Bugsy Malone was absolutely brilliant. The show was really good fun - all the kids performed so well. I don't think that any of them had any nerves at all. The costumes looked super, the dancing was excllent and the singing was superb! Can't wait to see it again on Saturday. That's all for now - I'm going to try and pop up one more card today before I go to collect Ben - he's here for a two week holiday!!!
