Well I have really enjoyed myself today as I have managed some crafting in fact I have made 2 cards. Might not get around to posting both as still have the pictures to take and the sunshine doesn't know quite what to do but if it stays out long enough for me to get both cards piccies taken I might even get both cards posted before son is home from school and then there is no peace. I swear he has an inbuilt sensor that tells him as soon as I sit down to do something even if I'm in another room as as soon as I do he shouts to ask something that he can't do and I have to get up, but I wouldn't change him and as time just seems to disappear I'm making the most of having him around . Before I know it he'll have left school and I won't see much of him unless he wants something of course, well I imagine anyway.
My first card is for the new challenge set by Spyder. This talented lady gave everyone a freebie to enter a not mushroom challenge she set and she said she had so much fun she has set another. There are a few freebie digi's on her site so why not pop across and join in the fun, you might win a custom drawn digi.
I decided that after being outside pegging out the laundry it felt really autumnal even though the sun was shinning and the sky clear blue , there was just no warmth in the sun outside, behind glass is another matter. The leaves on the trees are just starting to change colour so there is green smattered with oranges and browns and the grass has that tired look, quite beautiful really. I decided to couor the freebie woodland from Spyder in these colours and turn it into a thank you card.
I coloured my images with promarkers and then cut out the mouse and stuck him on with foam squares as I wanted some dimension as though he was walking out of the woods. I finished off with some candy brads from craftwork cards and a ribbon from my stash. The papers are all from my scrap box so sorry but unsure of the makes.
