Autumn Flowers

Good evening all.
After a nippy start it has turned into a lovely autumnal day so my card is quite apt:

Here I used my newly purchased Clearly Besotted 'Autumn Flowers' stamp set - love this set!!

This is actually my second attempt as when I nearly finished my first card I accidently dropped an inked stamp onto it which left a smudged mark.........Grrrrrrr!
Oh well I will save it and maybe cover up the smudge with something at a later date.

Luckily there are quite a few 'Autumn' themed challenges around at the moment so I'd like to enter the following:
Clearly Besotted 'Autumn'
Penny Black and More 'Autumn Colours'
Fantasy Stampers 'Autumn Colours'
4 Crafty Chicks   'Fall'
Cute Card Thursday  'Awesome Autumn!'
Creative Knockouts 'Happy-fall-y'all' 

So that's my share for today - thanks for visiting and hope you enjoy the rest of the evening.

Hot Chocolate Anyone?

Hello there - remember me?!!
I have been missing from blog land with my old enemy - Tonsillitis :(
The thing is Tonsillitis and I go back a LONG way, in fact I should have had my Tonsils out on my 18th birthday but I had a big party planned as I also got engaged. So I cancelled the hospital appointment and fell off the waiting list!!  Now whenever I get Tonsillitis it takes 10 days of strong antibiotics to clear it up. But never mind I am on the mend now.
Here is my entry for the Less Is More   Challenge where the theme is one layer 'Beverages':

Items used:
Paper Smooches 'Cyber Café' and 'Geo Graphic' stamps
Stampin Up inks
Glamour Dust
Glossy Accents
Fluffy Stuff
Brown metallic twine chopped up!

So that's my share for today, thanks for visiting.
