I am back with a few more cards that I have managed to get made this weekend after a full on week at work and home. Next week looks pretty busy too so I am glad that we have had a few days without too much to do....
First up is my card for CASology where the cue card is Flutter. I immediately thought of leaves fluttering from the tree for autumn and was really pleased to find that the PTI Mighty Oak set has a sentiment with 'flutter' in it!
I love the woodgrain on the tree and the graphic patterns on the leaves - such a fun set!
I also wanted to play along with Merry Mondays to keep building my Christmas card supplies - I can't believe it is October next week :( There is a fun bingo challenge this week and I went with red/die cut/sparkle:
I used a Hero Arts sentiment, SSS stars stencil and bell dies from Lil Inkers. The central panel is cut with a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die which I am using on everything at the moment! I will also link up at A2Z Scrapbooking's September challenge to make Fall or Christmas cards. These HA sentiments are large enough to be the focal point of a card and I love the polka dot Jolly!
Oh, and course, I will link up with SSS Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes :)
I have a few more cards to photograph so I should be able to get a few more challenge entries in this week :)
Thanks, as ever, for stopping by and for your kind comments....
See you soon,
