Hi and happy Wednesday - and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BEAUTIFUL GIRL WHO IS 2 TODAY!!
Two weeks have gone (where??) and we have a new challenge up for you at 7KCF Challenge Blog. Our own fantastic Suzanne set the theme this time - she has created a gorgeous sketch - with an added requirement for the card to be fall-themed.
There's no tradition here to really celebrate autumn specifically so I chose to create a card with autumnal yellow and gold colours using one of my favorite stamps from WOJ - WILLOW WITH HOT CHOCOLATE. Such a cosy, timeless and versatile image! It's out of stock at the moment at 7 Kids College Fund but Tab will have it back in stock shortly.
The papers are from gorgeous Basic Grey Origins collection - one of my favorites of theirs. Rich, deep, beautiful colours and suitable basically all year round! Not many lines like that! I am now officially all out though. :(
The image was coloured with Distress Inks and yes, I know there's a piece of fluff stuck to Willow's face on the close-up. Didn't notice it before and now it's too late to take a new photo. Story of my life.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts. It's a old set but I use it very often - lovely sayings and also suitable for array of occasions and styles.
Tab has now loads of new stuff from Hero Arts in stock at 7 Kids College Fund, btw. Halloween and Fall stuff check it out in added this week section.
The flowers are all from Petaloo and that lovely green lace I got from my wonderful friend Tara as a RAK. And of course I couldn't resist adding some flat back pearls. Luvs pearls, what can I say...
