Scrapbook Thursday

 


It's Grandson Tom's turn for his October page.
Well one of his layouts as I want to add a Halloween one
to show how they are dressing up.

This page came about because he lost his very first tooth last week!
Look at all the size of it!!
He was chuffed to bits though as it means he gets a visit
from the tooth fairy!

I followed the same sketch as last week from

I will add a bit to the side so his Mum
can record the date and what the fairy brought!
The papers and embellishments are all from Nitwits.

Here are some photos of the first fall of leaves in our back garden!
We have since cleared the same amount two days in a row.
I love the colours of them but seriously back breaking work.
This is only the top end of the garden, but you get the picture lol.

Out getting my shopping early this morning.
Trying to avoid people as much as possible
and you would seriously think there was no lock down
on at all with the amount of traffic on the roads.
Stay safe!

Halloween at Tag Tuesday

 


The challenge over at
has the theme HALLOWEEN
chosen by the lovely Michele

For my tag I started with some old olive card
and stamped it with the web stamp.
I then inked up the edges and added some
branches coming down from the top.
The spider was hand drawn (obviously lol), not my forte!

I stamped the cat from a lovely stamp and die set
I won with one of my cards recently. It's a Tim Holtz set.
I coloured him up orange and black.
He looks totally scared of that spider lol.

I finished off with the little bat and BOO wording
and a bit of linen string for the top.

I hope you get time to join the fun this month!

The garden is laden after the storm last night
but just too wet to go clean up.
We are heading out for a walk round the lakes
before the next heavy shower comes!!
Have a great day.

Forever Fern Anniversary Card

 


Happy Monday!
Hope you all had a safe weekend!

I'm starting my week with a Thinking of You card
for a customer's friend who has a relative's 1st Anniversary looming.

I wanted to keep everything soft and fresh so went with pool party and
mint macaron colours. The stamp set Is Forever Fern
and I used one of the Ornate Layers dies with the lovely edging.

I just stamped and layered up the bunch until I was happy.
This stamp and die bundle is really lovely to work with
and so useful. I have made and sold more than enough
cards to cover the cost easily.

There is a right gale blowing out there
which has filled our garden with the start of the Autumn leaves.
Busy season between now and December as we
are totally surrounded by trees who all love
to live their last moments in our garden lol.
Beautiful sight but hard work to keep on top of!

Have a great week and stay safe.

Gather together for Autumn






I traced the leaf and stuck plain white one on back
to cover up any mess.


I will add the same die cut piece for my sentiment on the back
and have used leftovers to stick top and bottom.



This is mid way post for
where the theme is
Autumn Glory.

I have used the Gather Together bundle
to create this Tent Fold Swing card.
I have used lots of autumnal colours in this one
and the leave and pumpkins, and all the sentiments
have been stamped.

Pop over to Stamping Sensations and join us.

I would like to enter this into

Enjoy the rest of your day and stay safe xx
