Autumn Already??

Actually feels more like winter outside - where did summer go. Surely those couple of days of sun wasn't it - please don't let that be true!!!

There's a challenge over at Craftymess this month for a card in autum colours and this is the card I made:

I think this stamp is turning into one of my favourites.

See what I mean - how cute is she...
Wild Orchid Flowers with Frosted Lace Stickles on them.

Sentiment foiled and cut with my nestie.

Ribbon (slightly wired at the edges, so is great for manipulating into a bow shape)

Image: Elisabeth Bell - Penpal
Sentiment: Computer generated & foiled in orange with Foil It
Medium: Promarkers
Papers & CS: from stash
Embellishments: Wild Orchid flowers, Mei flower metal butterfly, nestie used to cut out image & ribbon from stash.

I'd like to enter the above card in the following challenge:

Thanks for looking and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Summery card for my Cousin

Thought I'd bring a wee bit of summer to my page, since the weather is not bothering to sun-up!

This is a card I have made for my cousin, she is a nanny in Switzerland, so I will have to be extra careful when posting it so it gets there in one piece.

I must say this is one of my favourite cards and it will kill me posting it LOL. Might have to make one to keep myself, kinda cheers me up looking at it.

Coloured with my Promarkers.

Sentiment foiled with pink with my Foil It machine to match the card, it's murder trying to take a photo of this stuff as it is soooo reflective, looks great tho :oD.

My flowers, some Wild Orchid ones, some from my local craft shop. They have Frosted Lace stickles on them, but it hasn't come up to great on the photo.

Image: Sarah Kay
Sentiment: Computer generated foiled with Foil It machine
Medium: Promarkers
Papers: Wild Rose Studio (Butterfly Garden)
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Flowers and Stick Pins, Heather from local craft shop, Lace & Ribbon from stash

This was for my dad's card as he was an engineer in the shipbuilding industry for years, before it all started to fade away, but he still has a passion for ships.

Here's the card:
