Awesome Autumn...


Happy Tuesday everyone! Well I won't lie - this week is going kinda slow for me but I know that come Wednesday the rest of the week will be a blur and it'll be the weekend before I know it!

Just in case you haven't popped in our PTI blog, we've got a new challenge set! The challenge this time around is to be inspired by autumn. I have to say I found this challenge was soooo in my comfort zone - I tend to home in on these kinda colours not only in cardmaking but in everyday decisions too!

Here's my take on autumn anyways:Just love the warm fuzzy feeling that summer sunrise (I know, kinda ironic name for a cardstock that's to be used on an autumnal card LOL!) and pure poppy gives me!

Full deets can be found on the PTI blog and I would truly love it if you took a peek, maybe a plunge too and played along. Remember, there's some PTI goodies for grabs if you need tempting!

Finally, my dear friend Kate is celebrating her Blog Birthday! Happy Blog Birthday Hun!! Kate is celebrating in her true, generous style by offering some DELICIOUS Blog Candy that's calorie free and scrumptious too! Pop by to say Happy Blog Birthday and y'never know, you could be the lucky recipient of this:Right, that's all I've got on me for now! I was actually hoping to play along with the now ended RSCC before it ended as I adored the colours set. My aim was to create and post just before the deadline but as I'm yet to put ink to a stamp for it I guess it'll just be fun to play along even though it's ended. Well I guess I could still play along right? Better late then never!

Thanks so much for stopping by - I really appreciate it as I know I've been away a while so your visits really make me think I haven't quite lost my blog totally! I promise to update much more from now on!

Catch ya later!

Hey Aimes,

Or should I call you Queen of the Autumn swirls - I love this card. The mix between the polkadot and swirls looks great and the extra touch of the stamped swirl flower looks fabby.

Thanks for your comforting words from yesterday ;D

although Fall is not my favourite season, I sure do love the rich colours of the season...the flourish is perfect coming out of the flower...so glad to see you back! Hang in till the weekend!

Alison said...

That card is so lovely,the colours are perfect for the challenge. I'm lovin' the combo of the polka dot patten with the grid pattern, and the swirl makes the flower look like it's just blown in on the breeze.
You're rockin' the CAS style as usual!
