Lovely Leaves...

Hey!

Happy Monday peeps! I have a feeling this working week is gonna flash before my eyes with the amount of things I have to do to get ready for our PTI Make and Take on Sunday! So sorry if I'm a little absent in Blogland this week, but that's why! (Speaking of which, we have a spare place! If you'd like it, then email us at apassionforpapertrey@yahoo.com)

But before I get myself surrounded with stuff to sort, I'm sharing a leafy li'l number with y'all today as well as some pretty cool news. I've been featured over on the Inspirational blog! You can check it out here!

Anyways, onto the leafy li'l number:
Thank You Autumn

This card was made for our brand new challenge on the PTI blog: Awesomely Autumnal! We wanna see creations inspired by the season of autumn. I focused on the colours and the leaves that turn. Now the leaves are definitely turning around here - some trees are pretty naked after the terrible windy and wet weather we've had! I do love autumn, but it's the dry, crisp days I tend to remember fondly rather than the soggy ones! LOL!

Now this card features some of PTI's new colour - Fine Linen; lemme say I *love* this colour! It makes a fab neutral colour; great for when I want a little less contrast than using Kraft and a little more contrast than using PTI's Vintage Cream. I just know this is gonna be a staple supply of mine!

I really hope you can find a chance to play along with us too! Your creations need only one PTI product on them to qualify, so let autumn inspire you and go get inky!

Right then, back to the organising for next Sunday. Organisation was never my strong point *sigh*

Catch ya later!

Brilliant stamping of the leaves in orange over the dotty biscotti! I love it! I never think to stamp these leaves in something other than green, but you have definitely inspired me to try it soon!

Really love this one! Those leaves over the patterned paper are gorgeous--are they stamped in Pure Poppy to get that color? I so agree about the Fine Linen. I only bought the cardstock but LOVE it. It's just the greatest neutral!

Stunning card, Aimes. I really love it. Fall is my favorite season, so I should really play along with you. It's been ages since I played along with your challenges. Shame on me! ;-) Wish I could come over to the UK to fill that spare spot. Have fun on Sunday!

Oh this is outstanding, Aimes! I love the effect of the stamped leaves on the dotty paper, and the buttons are gorgeous.

Hope the organising is going well Aimes! Will miss seeing you this weekend!

I just love how much of an Autumn feel this conveys! If only it was warmer weather in Autumn - it'd make it my favourite season by far then! Just love the leaves stamped on the Dotty Biscotti, and you're totally right about Fine Linen - I can't put it down!!

Best of luck for Sunday - sending lots of hugs!
