Hugs, ETC.....

Good afternoon,

Hope you've had a good week and are enjoying a restful weekend. It's very blustery in the UK today and perfect weather for getting washing dry.... I have lots of towels and bedding flapping about in the wind, in fact one of the towels ended up half way up the garden a few minutes ago!!!

I've made a card today which definitely won't qualify as CAS, lol! Just a few embellies on this one, smile! I've used a gorgeous Lunagirl vintage image and some yummy Bo Bunny Timepiece papers here.... there's even a scrap of Basic Grey paper which I believe is from the Urban Prairie range.

There are lots of Autumnal leaves from Pairloftet and I've added some of the fab TH acetate ribbon and some scrabble letters. The roses are hand torn using dusky pink Co'redinations cardstock and I found a couple of gorgeous vintage black buttons with a marble design to hold down the folded corners. The swirl is a DooHickey die and the ETC stamp is by Bo Bunny. The main colour inspiration for my card came from seeing the latest Colour Create challenge which is Pink, Brown, Cream and White...... yum! I also had fun thinking of a song title for Charisma and Saturday Challenge and came up with 'Lean On Me' by Bill Withers based on my image, tee hee!

I'm also entering the following challenges:

Totally Papercrafts - Cute With Buttons

Stampin' For The Weekend - Tickled Pink

Crafty Catz - Ribbons

Tuesday Throwdown - 3 Papers, 2 Buttons, 1 Ribbon

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
