I think there must be something wrong with my internal clock! Been making a whole bunch of cards that look way more appropriate for Spring than for Autumn. I might add that I am looking very forward to the cooler weather, so I think I will really have to think about my colours with the next lot of cards!
Blue cardstock background run through cuttlebug. (Bloom dots folder).
Heart cut freehand and then edges inked.
This card could be used as a wedding card, or for an anniversary, or any other occasion that requires congratulations!

This morning I had to go to one of our government departments to renew my drivers licence. Thank goodness it only has to be done every 5 years! It's enough to drive one to drink....to drink tea and eat cupcakes! You can see where my mind was when I made these cards. Enjoy.

This card has quite a bit of stamping on it. The green background and the red hearts have been repeatedly stamped to form a background. Circles cut with a circle punch. Sentiment (one of my favourites) was generated on the computer. The thin ribbon across the top just finishes the card off nicely.

Please excuse the 'skew' photo, but I was working with it in the early hours of this morning.
We are, hopefully moving into Autumn, and this card does look suspiciously 'Springy', but I love using all the greens and bright colours of Spring on my cards. What do you think?

This card is very versatile because you could use it for various occasions.
Enjoy your time relaxing!

Something on my list of things to do in 2011 was to start a blog which could chronicle my creative journey. Well, hopefully this is it. I am rather computer challenged, so bear with me please. This is very much a case of hit and miss to begin. I'll be back with more exciting posts (hopefully!) as well as photos,ideas and tips, and tutorials relevant to crafting.
