What's your favourite season of the year? When I'm asked that question - I have to be honest and say it depends. I usually pick the season we're in - who couldn't love the warm, deep colours of autumn - the shades of yellow, orange and brown - just lovely! And aren't these photos just stunning - and I got the inspiration for my card from that lovely Autumn Wreath.
I started off with a plain white card and added some yellow ink to the edges. I placed a leaf mask on the card and the sprayed, lightly, with some gold Cosmic Shimmer - the leaf pattern has a lovely shimmer. I stamped the wreath onto plain white card and coloured with Promarkers. I used the Spellbinders lacey square to cut the base layer in brown. In my stash I found some lovely fabric in shades of orange and yellow - perfect!! Onto the dark orange fabric I stamped the sweet oak leaves and acorns, and I stitched a square of the yellow and orange fabric to the brown base layer. Next I added a plain white card on which I'd stamped a brown frame and sentiment. I used pinflair glue to give the oak leaf wreath some dimension.

That's all for now. We're off to the Mold Food Festival today - it's an annual event where local farmers, small holders and businesses get together to show off, and sell, their produce. It's such fun - we get so try different foods, see cookery techniques, the kids usually get to make a quick and easy recipe of some sort. We always come home with lots of food goodies - so I'm looking forward to what I can add to the larder!! Have a good day and I'll see you tomorrow!
