Indian Summer

>> Thursday, 24 September 2009

Good morning everyone. I hope you're enjoying some lovely weather at the moment. We're enjoying a bit of an indian summer in Kent at the moment. The mornings are a bit chilly but some beautiful sunshine and 21 degrees!!

I managed to get to the Craft Barn at the weekend. I had meant to go during their extravaganza weekend but got the dates mixed up so instead I browsed around a very quiet and peaceful shop while the shop manager made customers cups of tea!! I came away with more than I intended to buy (does that sound familiar?) and I've used some of my new stash on this card.

I've used my new yummy BG Indian Summer papers for this card and I think you will see a lot of these papers as they are totally gorgeous. Mimosa (from Bildmalarna) is coloured with distress inks and I sponged the background with Antique Linen. The flower was made following Rach's fab tutorial. I've tried to make one before without a mini stapler but it didn't really work so I bought a Bo Bunny stapler from the Craft Barn and voila, easy peasy! The leaves are a Quickutz die, as is the sentiment tag.

This card is for a number of challenges:

Sketch & Stash: Sketch and my new stash (BG papers)
Stamp with Fun: Autumn
Basic Grey: Embossing
Stamp Something: Favourite - these papers are definitely my new favourites

Hiya Sharon! Glad you got to the CB in the end :D and I'm not surprised you came away with one or two things ROFL, it's impossible to leave there without lots of gorgeous stuff and if you try a big buzzer goes off over the door and someone makes you another cup of tea :D. Love the Indian Summer papers, haven't got those.............yet! Gorgeous colouring on your image and your flower looks amazing, I must have a go. Take care and speak soon. Chris xx
