Fall in the Country

Hello friends.  Well, I spent the entire day yesterday hauling all my Fall and
Halloween decorations upstairs from the basement.  
I unboxed everything, and put everything out.
Then I was too exhausted to do anything else, but was fun while it lasted!!

  Poor dog is missing the bay window, where she spends a lot of time
 keeping watch over the neighborhood on a daily
basis in that window. Now she is peeking through the decorations
trying to see what is going on.

Made today's card with a stamp I bought a long time ago and just got
around to finally using it.



Stamp - Silhouette Grazing Horse - Blue Knight Stamps (11-01-0127)
Papers - White and Black card stock, Barn Wood designer paper from
a small Wood grain stack from JoAnn's  
Circle die - Spellbinders Grand Dies
Leaf  die - Gina Marie Designs
Autumn word die - Die Namics
Various die ink pads
Twine

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a good day.
Until later.........

Falling Leaves

Hi friends, hope everyone is doing well today.

The large Chestnut trees in our front yard are already losing their leaves
and this years crop of horse chestnuts (not edible, except by squirrels)
are just about ready to start falling also.

Soon, I will be complaining about having to rake and bag them all up.

This little fox seems taken by the falling leaves around him,
I ordered this sweet digi from Whimsy from their September
digi release.



I colored him with Copics.  Designer paper is from
Michaels 12x12 stack their brand.
The orange paper is from the Paper Cut and is
Metallic Mandarin

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a good day.
Until later..............

Di's Bio.
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people. I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

Many thanks to our generous sponsors for their continued support.
