I bought some daffodils and tulip bulbs and decided that I would top the pots with some winter pansies and violas. This gives some autumn, and hopefully winter colour in my garden for the long dark months ahead.
I cleaned up my pots and lined them with some crocks
My bulbs will sleep and grow quietly over the coming months, cozy in their compost.
I was also delighted to see this pop through my letter box at the weekend.
and I love this photo below....just so autumnal...
here.There are also some amazing DT cards up at the moment too if you need any inspiration for Christmas, birthday or Halloween.
The image I have used is from this sheet here.. I used my distress inks to colour my tag. The grunge sentiment is such also such fun, here is the link.I used my favourite Cheery Lynn edge dies to make a "faux" lace border. The top two are cut using the Queen Anne's lace edge die and the bottom one is the Francesca edge. I also used the flourish leaf strip for all the leaves.
Here is that fab image in close up

As you like it anything but a card this is my favourite project as I have never made any Halloween crafts until this year. I love this amazing image and it just cried out for some distress inks! I had so much fun inking the background.It is going to be attached to one of my kids Halloween bags (yes he is only 24!!)
Papertake Weekly 2 by 2 I have used 2 different edge dies to create my faux lace border
We are also getting ready for our grandbaby's imminent arrival...my daughter's due date is 4 weeks on Friday...eek where have 9 months gone? As the sentiment on my tag reads...get ready to scream!! (with joy of course;0) Keep warm, there is a 10oc temperature drop forecast for tomorrow here in the UK, it's time to get out those winter woolies now. Keep warm and carry on crafting.
Bye for now,
