What You Give You Get Ten Times Over......

Good morning folks!

Well I really didn't think I'd have a card to show today..... the old mojo has been feeling under the weather for the past couple of days! I'm not sure why really but I suppose I have a lot going on at work just now and sometimes tiredness can make creativity suffer.

Anyway, nothing like a good sketch from Motivet to make things better! And playing along with the Motivet girls meant I could ink up one of my fave stamps of the Summer. How cute?!

Thought I'd show you the card laid flat so you can see the layering and depth better. I used Basic Grey Indian Summer papers and various Martha Stewart punches. Lots of inking and faux stitching hopefully add to the slightly antique, Autumnal effect.

I'm also entering the latest By The Cute & Girly Challenge where the theme is Indian Summer...... perfect!!! That's what my Basic Grey papers are called!!! Finally I notice that The Play Date Cafe have a gorgeous colour theme this week of burnt orange, plum and latte..... well that's the name I'm giving to the colours shown anyway, lol!

Have a fabbie day and I'll see you late when I get home from work...... oh and thanks so much for stopping by today ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
