Fall wishes!

Good morning all! It sure looks misty, murky and miserable out of my window today. Shame I have to go to work! Well today I have a card to sare with you all that I made using the fab new country cousin autumn kit from Sugar Nellie. There are some really cute stamps in this kit and it is such fantastic value. The leaves I have use are an accessory stamp that also comes with the kit. I used my favourite MME papers with this image as well. Love the colours, so autumnal, and I hadn't used them in ages and they were starting to feel neglected so it was the perfect excuse to dig them out!

I used the fabulous sketch by Kathy over at The Sugar Bowl challenge. As soon as I saw it I knew which image I wanted to use! There's an amazing prize on offer this week. A set of six new christmas stamps from Leanne Ellis! So what are you waiting for head on over and have a go! I am also entering it over at Stamptacular Sunday challenge where they want to see the theme of 'Fall'!


Image: From the Autumn Country Cousins kit by Sugar Nellie. Leaves also from the same kit. Available here from funky kits. Coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor.

Paper: MME Bloom and Grow


Sentiment: Papermania, freebie with a magazine

Tools: distress inks, sponge, nesties

Misc: Adhesive pearls from stash coloured with permanent whisper pens, Raffia lace ribbon from Hobbycraft

I am so pleased with how this card turned out, just how I envisaged it! I must tell you about the fabulous new releases form Sugar Nellie that will be available in the next few days over at Funky Kits! If you head on over to the Sugar Nellie Blog there are some sneak peaks of these fab new stamps! I hope you have been saving your pennies, I know there's plenty of them on my wish list!!

I had a great time at Stamp Magic on sunday with my mum, and unbelievably I stuck to my budget! I got some gorgeous MME Wonderful Winter papers, gimmer mist {never used this before}, sizzix snowflakes dies and some craftwork cards sentiments to name but a few. So watch out for some creations with my new stashover the next week or so!

Well I'd best dash and get off to work. Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you may leave I realy appreciate them!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
