I couldn’t resist this one when I saw the elemental inspiration on the Daring Cardmaker’s Blog…


I love these colours and of course I’ve been leaf obsessed for the last month or so. I did, however, decide to do something different for this one, so using Distress Oxides, I made this.


For the Calling All Sisters Challenge, Black and white, I made this…BW AGE 1

…and for My Time to Craft’s Kraft card challenge, I made this, with my favourite all time technique – Versamark resist on glossy card…


… which, because of the quote, also fits Fashionable Stamping’s Quote Away challenge.

The challenge on Sweet Stampin is to use a stencil, so I used my Phyllis Harris stamps by Unity to make this.


The challenge at Allsorts is to use Trees and/or Leaves, so I took a break from what I consider to be Autumn colours and used pink and grey Oxides for this one.


That’s all for today...

I’m off to see the dentist now – unfortunately, I have an abscess, so have been in pain the last few days and my face is ridiculously swollen on one side Sad smile

Thanks for looking

See you soon

Fabulous cards Cath, the black/white one looks stunning and I always love to see that Unity stamped girl.
