My Time To Craft # 82 - Halloween Colours....


Good morning friends, are we happy to see Friday? I certainly am as I'm off work today - swapped my usual day off which is a Wednesday because my son has an inset day and so has broken up already for half term....... I'm also looking after his friend and as I type this they are sat in the front room watching 'Big' and munching on some sweeties. As a result I hope to get a couple of cards done for DT work which is fast approaching, yikes..... best get my skates on then!!

I thought I'd have a go at an easel card for this project and I've used one of the fabulous stamps sent to me by Tracey when I was still part of the Squiggle Team. This one is Daisy and Toadstools and I think she's perfect for Autumn cards. I followed the brief over at My Time To Craft where we're asked to use Halloween colours but not necessarily for a Halloween card.


The papers I've used are Cosmo Cricket 'Earth Love' and for the black swirls I made use of some more strips from my Bazzill Just The Edge range, these really are so versatile! The flower is layers of Prima flowers and everything else is from my stash.

Hope you enjoy the rest of today and the weekend ahead...... the sun is trying to peek through so maybe we're heading for some Autumn sunshine ;o)

Absolutely gorgeous Tara, love the papers you have used. I'm trying to do an easel card at the moment, has taken 2 days so far and I'm no further forward. It's not the card, its the kids - just can't get to do anything !!!
