PTI Blog Hop

Hey!

Well I officially think I may be superwoman! LOL! Not only am I trying to sort out moving but have managed to craft with all my crafting goodies boxed up! I've recently had to make a load of cards due to typical Chris asking for cards at the very last minute - I keep tellin' him we have a calendar to prevent this problem but he's yet to use it! LOL!

So my first creation that I can share with you is this one which is for this month's PTI Blog Hop. My official post for this creation is over on the PTI Blog but I wanted to share it with you here too! The challenge was to create something inspired by autumn:
I hope you like it! Can you hear the leaves rustle with that big gust of wind and envisage the leafs blowing towards you? Well that was what I was trying to interpret anyways!

Now I've multi-tasked on this card as it also qualifies for Dawn McVey's Rapberry Suite Colour Challenge #15! I double stamped a couple of my leaves to add more depth to the orange leaves (it's all Melon Berry)
For more details on the card recipe and the PTI Blog Hop check out my official blog hop entry over on the PTI blog.

Right, I'll be back soon as I've actually got a back log of cards to upload - yup, that's how busy I've been!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Catch ya later!
