where has all the light gone...


Good morning everyone hows your week going, its chilly now isn't it there a definite smell of Autumn about and before you know it the fire will have to be lit 'sigh'...with the Autumnal weather the light has changed too don't you think, it far more wishy washy (that's a technical weather term lol)...plus it doesn't show dust as much negative its harder to take your photos, although our garden is still blooming and I don't have enough vases for all the stunning roses which reminds me I must take some photos of them before they are all gone...I had a relaxing day yesterday but didn't get any crafting done at all so will have to head into the craft room today, its a real mess too and needs a proper clean up and declutter I think...I have a bin you know but never seem to use it and always have an ever growing pile of tape backing, if only there was something we could make with the backing strips, I will have to have a think about that, all suggestions gratefully accepted of course lol...right now onto my card for today and its another of the super stunning new Winter Wonder release from Sugar Nellie...this is the gorgeously pretty Elf Made Magic coloured with my distress inks and glittered, well glittered in fact lol, with a few pearls added to her outfit...the amazingly lush papers are in fact from a Baby paper pad, it just goes to show you don't have to use Christmas papers for a Christmas card do you...they are from the Kaisercraft - Bundle of Joy 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad...I added a bow made with beautiful Organza Ribbon - Dusky Pink (25mm Wide) and cut out a couple of holly leaves from the check papers and added some pearls for berries...I like this colour combo for Christmas don't you?...the paper pad and ribbon I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the fab sketch is from the Just Us Girls Challenge and I'm also entering it for the One Stitch at a Time Challenge and the Totally Gorjuss Challenge too...I'm off for a coffee and a ponder over getting enough energy together to start tidying my craft room...or not lol...whatever your up to today have a gorgeously sunny warm one
