City Crafter 280

Hi there!

My sweet friend Stella is hosting for us this week at


The theme is "Fall Has Arrived"
Create a card or project and pick an element of the photo inspiration.


 Stella -
"Fall has just started and yes leaves are falling. But it's also harvest time so that's also a great idea to start with. Or create a view with hills/borders. Just have fun!"

Here's my card


I cut a little hillside, sponged it and added the sweet little wooden houses and then cut and water coloured the leaves in Autumn shades


Ok... So the ladybird was just an added extra ... not really Autumnal... But it's red like the fruit in the photo.. Yes that's how my old brain works Lol!
And the piece of painted cardboard just happened to be in my scraps waiting to be used on something so why not?


This week we have the lovely Andie Miller Guesting for us - Here's a link to her Blog - do pop by and say hello! And hop on over to CCCB to check out the creations from all the team

We're looking forward to seeing your projects this week ... You always blow us away with your talent!

I'm still away so I'll catch up with you all when I get home
Till then have a beautiful week ...

What a beautifully crafted scene, Ros. There's so much that captures the eye - the pretty leaves, the sentiment, the teeny ladybug! Lovely. I feel so honored to join the challenge today. Thank you so much for inviting me to join you City Crafters today!

Hope you had a lovely time away? Loving the take on the theme with this card. I think it's a clever use of the ladybird and your colours are gorgeous. The leaves with the pop of gold/mica are beautiful and the corrugated card pulls the whole card together. The sentiment is just perfect!

Such a beautiful creation! I don't know how my brain works but I actually like that battered piece of cardboard best :-)

Cute card Ros! What a fun scene that you created! The little wooden house looks darling!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

I love the crisp green and little wooden houses on your card, absolutely lovely!
Thanks for your kind words and moral support, it was hard for me to bring it up as I tried my very best not even to think, but it does help that I take a little baby step rather than buried it deeper and deeper in my heart. Thanks for hearing me out my friend!

Fabulous design. Love how you have done the leaves with the cute little ladybird to top it all off.

Sue Lelli said...

Fabulous card Ros... I love the whole composition of it, especially the tiny wooden houses.

Eeeps! What a combo. The cardboard, your splatters, a wooden house and a cute ladybug. Winner, winner, chicken dinner. LOL

Jinny Newlin said...

Eeek! Just look at all those amazing textures and techniques! This is stunning, girl, and that sentiment is perfection!
