WOYWW, Autumn

Good evening my dear bloggy friends!

I am very late posting - it was a long and busy day and my eyes are dropping but I thought I must get on there and make an effort! I don't have much to offer - just an autumn card! But first is first - lets have a look at my really messy desk - hardly anything you won't find on there.....stamps, inkpads, even a bowl and a spoon - I had my chia! (you know that super food full of every goodness you need :-) ), A hook, a mouse well have a good snoop and you might find more! If you won't find what you want go over to Stamping ground where snoopers snoop all day!

 Yes my computer is showing Jozarts blog - thats where I got my idea for the autumn card.....and in the middle of the desk there you can see the background which I  made with the metallic distress stains, Adirondak Color wash and tattered angels sprays I was messing with it quite a while! Then I stamped leaves with stamps from the Stampattack with Versamark ink and embossed them with gold embossing powder and also stamped a few swirls... ....here is the result....

and a close up where you can see the shiny leaves....

I will enter this card into the Slovene challenge Craftalnica - as it is an autumn card and fits the challenge! 
So that is me for today short and sweet - ha, ha I bet Julia will be happy - for once I am short!
Girls I am looking forward to the BIG WOYWW CROP - not counting today we have 9 days to go! YIPEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Lots and lots of hugs - see you sooon!

    Thanks for the credit and I'm so pleased and flattered to have inspired you in whatever small way that I did.
    Stay well, rest that leg ready for the okey kokey next week! I'm recovering as fast as I can make it from a cold, lost voice, bad throat and dreadful cough after all the talking last week wrecked my vocal chords. Got to get it back asap so we can gab for Britain!

  15. Your autumn card is fantastic. So much shimmer and shine. I also like your Halloween card from the previous post. I thought it was extremely clever and so well done. Sorry I keep visiting late. Maybe one of these days I'll get here on time.

  16. oh my, your computer is right where you make a mess! Well, sometimes I have my laptop near me when I'm making something and now laptop has some green glitter and paint smudges! Patsy from

  19. In answer to your comment - yes I am coming to the WOYWW crop on Saturday - see you then!

  20. Zelo všečno; super izgleda :-))

  21. yes it's getting very close now. There will be lots to do. I am wanting to do the domino workshop too, so hopefully there will be time, the tassel takes a couple of hours but you could always start it and finish it at home I will bring you a kit, but no pressure on the day.
