Autumnal Card...

Morning Everyone,

Well its certainly more like Autumn here in Scotland. You can smell the coolness in the air when you get up in the morning. I do love the colours of the  season but I dont like how the nights get shorter so quickly!! 

Today's make is done using a die but embossing it. I followed this Jennifer McGuire tutorial over on You Tube. I dont know if you can see it but I added a little sparkle too.

Card Recipe

A6 Card

Spellbinders Leaf Die

Creative Expressions Sentiment Stamp.

Coloured with Aquamarkers and Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen.

Thats all from me for today. I hope you are all safe and well. My plan for today is to get some fence painting done. I just do a tiny bit as I get tired quite easily. Its meant to be a lovely day so will be nice to be outside. 

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel

Hope the fence painting goes well and the forecast is correct. This is a beautiful card love that leaf, reflects the colourful time of year. It is true the further north you go the fewer the hours of daylight in these months. I moved about 300 miles from the south to the midlands and notice it, imagine in the winter your hours of darkness do seem long, but then in the summer your hours of light are longer as well. Have a great day. x
