Autumnal Colours

Hello... It's good to be back

My Aunt arrived last Friday (finally) and left yesterday... She looked amazing and was just her old self, not quite what I expected really considering her recent health issues but she was as fiesty as ever and somehow still defying the ageing process
 We viewed a number of properties whilst she was here with the view to her moving nearer the family, but suffice to say nothing pleased her and I can't see anything changing in the future... 'Nuff said.

 I have a little card to share that I made last week whilst I was with Pat... I'm squeezing into the challenge at AAA Cards before it closes...

I smooshed cardstock with various distress inks and then die cut the leaves... then I did some dry embossing with the same die over the leaves

The Eiffel tower die was cut both in CS and in foam to give it dimension and then I applied Versamark all over the die cut and embossed it with a mix of silver and gold embossing powders.

The sentiment was stamped and embossed to match... 

I just love the colours of Autumn... I desperately try to hold on to our brief summers here in the UK but the golds, reds and yellows of Autumn are a beautiful distraction from the inevitable winter weather that seems to last forever and sneaks in unannounced, so quickly.
Did I tell you that our hedgehogs have been visiting regularly every evening? We feed them and it's good to see them so plump before they hibernate and boy can they run!

Have a beautiful day and I'll catch you soon
