Gold, Brown, Red, Copper...

Good Morning All! What a gorgeous, sunny autumn day it is here! A perfect blue sky, glorious sunshine but with a crisp bite in the air! And what lovely colours with all the trees turning all shades of gold and red! Hope it's as lovely where you are!

On to my cards, this week I so loving working in my new craftroom! And to top that my hubby has gone and spoiled me again! He suprised me with some new Sugar Nellies, Tildas and Distress Inks! How nice is that! So I've made use of my new goodies to create cards for two challenges. The first card is for Cute Card Thursday, where the theme this week is "Autumn", yipee! All those lovely colours...I've been experimenting with my new distress inks to colour with, I have to say I'm quite pleased with the result...


I used:
- Tilda in the Wind Stamp by Magnolia (Great choice my hubby made choosing her)
- Distress Inks to colour (Tattered Rose, Frayed Burlap, Mustard Seed, Black Soot)
- Bazzil Card (Rust)
- Sentiment stamp by Woodware
- Heart Brads etc from my stash (it's getting bigger by the day!!!)

The second is for A Spoonful of Sugar challenge, this week it's a fabby sketch by Lim. I used one of my new Nellies, isn't she cute?!


I used:
- Sugar Nellie Stamp from Funky Kits
- Watercolours to colour
- Paper is by Paper Mania (Secret Garden)
- Sentiment Stamp by Woodware
- Rest from stash

Well I'm off to enjoy the sunshine now, thanks for popping by. Have a great day!
