 Hello everyone,

Hope you are all well and happy and getting some crafting done..I have been having a great time playing in my room, I do stuff around the place as well and even went shopping yesterday and bought some new clothes, my others have shrunk...what!..what's so funny, they shrunk I tell you..2

Never mind, I love playing in my room and trying out new stuff and using up older stuff, so here's what I did with some of my leaves that I shared a few days ago..

I was trying to die cut Pumpkins but some had another idea..

I found these chipboard lamp posts in my stash and painted them then gold embossed them in patches...too much juice and the lamp fell off!

The smaller set I added glitter to the lamp shade part..

Used up leaves and leftover grunge flowers...

The background had lots of gold embossing on it using a Stamping Up leaf stamp..

Added half pearls from my stash of embellishments that I have had forever..

Then this card evolved with more leftovers, another lamp post and some pumpkins...
Moving on..

Leaves and pumpkins and an old rickety fence..

Pumpkins coloured with markers but left one white as I think it looks good..

I like this card the best..

Thank you so much for stopping by..while typing this my nose is so cold and so is around my waist that once was..need another jumper I think..
See you tomorrow..

Hi Chrissy, well I love them all but I like the last one best of all, it just appeals to me.
Love the pics of Holly, such a sweet girl, as for the shrinking clothes, I suffer from that, you have to wonder don't you!!!!!xx

Fabulous cards Chrissy, and love your furry helper! Hugs, Valerie

Ah Chrissy- so annoying when your clothes shrink like that...and expensive!
A gorgeous set of cards, love the autumn colours- the third one is my favourite too!
Holly is such a pretty cat- it's lovely that she likes to help with your crafting....I usually have a dog on my feet- he's hoping that I drop something so he can snatch it and run off and eat it before I can catch him. I'm not too bothered when it's paper or card but get a bit stroppy if it's a stamp- he has consumed more than one!

Awe! Looks like kitty is begging for some attention over your crafting time! LOL!! Wow! Your design looks so amazing Chrissy! Really love how you are able to piece items together to add color or heat embossing to make them fit your designs! The gold with the Fall leaves is beautiful! Nicely done!
