Truly Scrumptious

>> Wednesday, 14 October 2009

Thank you so much for all your get well wishes.  My cold is nearly gone and I’m feeling much better.  However, Dave thinks he has caught it so he went out today and spent £16.00 (yes £16.00) on a pot of honey which is supposedly wonderful for treating colds.  At £16 a pot it certainly needs to be!! 

It’s time for another Truly Scrumptious challenge and this week we have a fab sketch by the talented Mina with the theme of ‘Autumn’. 


This card came together really easily (for a change!) as I knew exactly what image and papers I wanted to use.   I love this Autumn Milly from Pink Gem Designs.  She is coloured with distress inks and her log has some flowersoft moss along the top.  The papers are BG Indian Summer – these papers are such gorgeous rich colours.  I used a Quickutz die to cut the leaves which I then covered with crackle paint and spritzed with glimmer mist.  I’m really pleased with the effect but the macro setting isn’t good enough on my camera to show a close-up.


Janet (Pink Gem Designs) has a competition to win six of her stamps and is also looking for a Guest Designer so I’m going to enter this card.

I hope you can join in the Truly Scrumptious challenge this week.

Such a cute card Sharon and your colouring is gorgeous.
I thought the £5 I spent on Manuka honey was a lot!

Fabulous Sharon - love the colours you've chosen and those BG papers are gorgeous. The image is adorable and such stunning details.
Glad you're feeling better, sorry DH isn't - give him some garlic soup - garlic is a natural anti-biotic, not only that no-one will go near him so he won't be able to pass it on (lol).
