Autumn Colourful...

travelling back from a Salmon Fishing break in Northumberland (he fished, I made Christmas Cards etc...Fabulous time was had by all - we did some walking and eating and drinking too as you do!) was very colourful, we saw so many beautiful views and the colours of the Autumn trees were amazing.  Short post to add this card to The Ribbon Girl October Colour Challenge.  Printed a  Pink Petticoat simple sentiment added a few memory box twig and leaves coloured in promarkers and some red Ribbon Girl top stitching thread to frame the whole... hope you like it...x

Top SECRET...Our daughter is nearly 40!

After a few weeks of extreme busyness helping out with the grandchildren (which I have loooved!!) I'm back on track.....I have been crafting (and baking, sewing and knitting - a little pink teddy!) but, not had chance to blog sooo,  here I am again with a card I have loved making for my beautiful daughter who is soon to be '40' and is having a 'sparkly' themed do (she won't see this blog I hope!! so no harm done..heehee) and I just know she and her 3 daughters will love it as much as I have enjoyed making it.

 I just love black and white or white on white so decided to mix this with one of her delights... shoes!  Not sure I have captured the sparkle on the white section of the shoe which is dusted with glamour dust and looks very effective, the diamonte on the front is one I saved from of all things a bar of beautifully wrapped soap!

The shoe is a template which comes in pieces..afraid I cant remember offhand the site I bought this from but if anyone is interested in it I will certainly do my best to find some details as it comes in several pieces and you can alter the style of shoe, which I printed onto card and cut and pieced this shoe from inspire me embossed card.  The swirls are from a memory box die, ribbon saved from some packaging and the words are computer generated..Hope you love it as much as I do!  Inoticed Less is More is Lucky Dip week goes although this doesn't meet the marriage I am changing the wording for this to be used as a wedding card in December which is a black and white theme and it does represent as it is LOVE I will put the words HAppy Ever After on the Wedding shoe card!( LIM may throw me out, but never mind the thought is there and I hope you enjoy!)
