Purrrfect...

Hello Everyone,

Another gorgeous spring morning, the winds have died down, the weeds are flowering beautifully in my garden!!!.....I must fix that...when I finish another card...lol..I do like gardening and will get out there...it's just that I made fatal mistakes out the front and now I'm suffering for it..

Never rake out bark, onto stones...makes life very difficult...The stones have now gone...the bark has now gone...but the fatal seeds have spread everywhere.What was a parking area, stones, for my husbands car, should now be grass again, and the barked garden which housed cockhroaches, should be flowery and pretty...BUT..I never sprayed first, and when I raked, the weeds that were growing in the bark, spread to the grass...and the garden...terrible...looks shocking...and still I have not talked myself into cleaning it up....think I will spray everything and start again.


Made this card using my new spellbinders leaf die...LOVE the dies......


Another cute image off the net, coloured with Faber castell pencils and blending oil.Added dots  around the image...yay..it worked better this time.
Sentiment is PC made with tiles font.



I love these leaves, cut them out with a green patterned paper and one cream leaf which I inked up.

No DP's, just green card stock, and the back off one of my pads then disstressed the edges.



Bit of a side view...inside is just lined with the pad cardboard.

Will tell you a hint I found when loading up your images on a post.
Sometimes the little turning thing goes round and round drives me crazy....picture wont come up and I wait for ages...well, today I'm in a hurry, and was getting ratty, so I clicked in the turning, thinking, thing, and the blue highlight came around the would be photo and then the photo appeared, so I did that with the other pics, and sure enough it poppped up super quick...

Enetring this card into a  challenge hopefully...

Sentimental Sundays   Autumn colours

Thanks for dropping in, and hope you all have a fabulous weekend....

Luv CHRISSYxx

LOL Chrissy..your comment cracked me up! You are so welcome for the additional work that I may have caused you. :D Nice to see that we both have "fall" cards on our minds. We get tons of trick or treaters around here, the most excited one is my 16 year old. LOL...
Your card is fantastic and I love that new Spellbinders leaf die. Incredibly versatile for anything.
OH...btw, thank you for letting me know how you made your tiny matchbox books. I've been tinkering with them over here.
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! The couch is calling me now, time for mom to rest up for bed.
Take care,
Lisa xx

Hi Chrissy, I can see why you are loving your new leaf die. Very nice indeed! I love image that you have used. You sure do color wonderfully. Really cute card my friend. I am tired just hearing about all the work you have ahead of you. lol... I always love the look afterwards, but I admit I would rather Jerry do that than me. Have a great week. Hugs, Lisa
