 Long time no blog... I've been well and truly AWOL for a while and haven't even been able to do much stamping until I had to made a quick card today, so I thought I'd start to clear up my folder in readiness for the new things in my head right now... Life does have a habit of getting in the way of having fun, even if it's fun in other ways - not all the time, though 😊

I've just done a little catching up, so if I haven't yet made it to your blog, I probably will soon, though I already know tomorrow is a busy day. Please forgive me for not visiting. I'll get there eventually. I'm trying really hard not to do any Autumn stamping, though I know I can always journal...it's one of my favourite colour and imagery seasons, so I can feel the pull already as I've been looking around at what you've been doing and looking around me when I'm out. Aren't the trees and leaves glorious? They really bring a smile to my face.

Onward we go...so here are my makes. First up Aall and Create's Dragonflies. This is the first dragonfly stamp I've bought for a long time. They were once my favourite thing to use but I haven't stamped one in years. I love these, though. I also love this background. I stamped this one in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder, then smooshed and spritzed Oxides until I was happy with the result - and I love it! 

The next card is the other one from the set, with a totally different background and extra bits of stamping.

I did indulge myself in one little Autumnal play... this one was so much fun to make, too. I love autumnal colours with blue. They work so well together. 
I'd better end here. I was interrupted by a phone call, so I'll come back another time with the rest.
Meantime, I'd like to link to the following challenges:-
Allsorts, Autumn Colours

Thank you so much for calling in
Back soon!
Stay safe and well 😉
