Hi there loveliest of peeps and hope you are all OK on this rather nice Autumnal day today :)

That’s the good news.

The bad news is that we are in for more rain next week, boooo hisssssss.

Ok today I have a card to share which  I made with some stuff I got recently at the NEC. It’s not at all like my usual stuff but I have to say that I do kind of like it.

I got some natural type bits and bobs from Anna Marie Designs ….

… and made this card up which is quite similar to the one that she had on display which I fell in love with.

I’ve done it a little bit differently as I used a kraft card base but the layout and some of the products used are the same, so a shameless bit of casing here!!!

I used Shabby Flowers, natural green moss and  natural jute. Other stuff I used is a Cheery Lynn  Francesca Border die which I got from Lili of The Valley but you can also get them from Jan at Sir Stampalot. And a Super Duper  Holly Punch which I also got from Sir Stampalot

I made a rolled rose out of some red Bazzill to sit on the top cos I love red with kraft card :)

I’ve been at the ink on the edges again!!!

As I got a big bag of stuff from there, you can be sure that there will be more stuff like this on here before to long!!!!

I do like natural type stuff even though I am not always sure what to do with it (you don't have to answer that one lol). So I will have to have a fiddle and see what I come up with, It’s nice to try something new isn't it – stops you getting into a crafty rut.

Well Dishy Dave is still in the jungle but ohh it was a close call last night. Instead,  OK Ya Hugo went. I think both of them were a bit gutted to be in the bottom two but you pays yer money, you takes yer chance and all that.  I am so into Corrie as well at the mo – poor Tyrone. What a good story line this is and I am on tenterhooks every time evil Kirsty comes on the screen, waiting for her to blow a gasket!!! Where’s it going to end? Ohh fo sho in tears for someone, but I wonder who??????

I am pleased to report that we are now officially a leaf free zone as his Lordship has finished the leaf picking up job at last. He is now power hosing anything that doesn't move so I am not sitting still for too long in case he starts on me! He still cannot play tennis cos of his  foot and so he is quite frankly bored out of his skull!!! So he is out in the garden doing any jobs he can find, bless him until he is back at work on 17th December.

Talking of work, some of us aren't so lucky to be off so I better get back to it. I’ll see you soon as soon – maybe tomorrow if I manage to make something else tonight. I’m trying to make a start on my Christmas cards a bit earlier this year so that there isn't the usual last minute panic or even worse, I have to actually BUY some (shock horror!!). 

Have the fabbiest of days and huggiest of hugs to all xxx

This is stunning Dawny. I LOVE the design with all the natural bits and pieces and that gorgeous flower.

I must admit, I thought about you when they left Dishy Dave's name to the end last night!
