Autumn again

Hi all,

Thought I'd swing by and drop off the tag I made for our your favourite season challenge at the Crafting Cafe this month.

I chose autumn for mine, not because it's actually my favourite (that would be summer, though I've been having trouble remembering what one of those is like since I moved to Leeds), but because it's my favourite "crafting" season. I just adore the warm colours and of course the browns. I do love browns! lol.

Anyways, this is what I came up with:

It's almost all Tim Holtz again, lol. DI background, blueprint stamps (these leaves look so awesome covered in Crackle paint, I think) and a TH word band. Add a little twine and some stencilling, and done!

One thing I don't like much about actual autumn however, is the incessant rain (ok, not much different from any other season there!). As I don't drive, I pretty much end up getting soaked any time I set foot outside the house, brolly or no. But that's life in Britain really, and if we didn't have the weather to talk about, whatever would we do?

Hope you all have a great (and dry!) day!

It's official Sammy Autumn must be upon us as the leaves have turned brown and are falling. Just love your work and this is no exception. Judy x

Wow Sammy........ FABULOUS! Love the rich shades you've managed and that crackle paint on the leaves.... looks so good!

Know what you mean about Leeds (we're a little further north at Wetherby), went back down to the Isle of Wight a couple of weeks back and it's so much warmer!! hehe

this is a stunner Sammy, LOVE the autumn colours I do!! Martin and I married in November just so that the leaves would be on the ground to have the photos taken outside the church and we honeymooned in Wales so we could take advantage of the gorgeous colours too xx

good golly, this is amazing! I love the leaf stamp in the bg. really helps sets the tone for the entire tag. of course the little metal sentiment tag on the twine is wonderful!

have a great day! :)

We do love to discuss the weather don't we?! And the weather report from here today is...sunshine...rain...sunshine...cloudy/windy...hmpf.
The autumn colours are starting to show though and that's a nice treat...just like your delightful tag! The leaves do look gorgeous with the crackle paint on and well, that word band says it all :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
