The colours of Autumn x

For my DT blog post over at Hey Little Magpie this month, I concentrated on using 1 range of paper & their embellishments. I chose Fancy Pants - True Friend as it's colour palette is right up my street & with the added foxy embellishments you would think it had been made with me in mind :)

Just for you.
I've used lots of the fancy Pants  Brag Cards & a frame here to highlight a Foxy gift from a friend.
I added texture paste & stencilling to the background paper.
 You make Me Happy.
I continued to focus on the Brag cards this time in a much more formal design, then using embellishments & die cut leaves to soften the shape a little.
 Fall Fun.
For this page I clustered the Brag Cards & patterned paper with a frame & doily over a paint, gesso & sewing background I created to give the feel of the furry hood my DD is modelling!!
Many thanks for looking x

Boxing Clever.

Yesterday was my Husbands birthday & even though I don't usually make many cards I wanted to try & make something special for him. I had a good look on Pinterest but for once nothing caught my eye so I headed over to the silhouette store & purchased a couple of files which were right up his street x
Box cards have been all the rage this year and as he is a golf fanatic I knew he would be really pleased with it.
As the silhouette did all the cutting all I had to do was assemble it. The trophy part I took from a football card file they have, as Hubby has been lucky enough to win some silverware whilst playing recently.
The mechanics of these cards never cease to impress me and he loved it too.
Many thanks for looking x
