Hopping on Cloud 9

Wheee, this is the first time I've played along with the Cloud 9 Blog Hop!

I decided to go with all of the pumpkins in the inspiration piece, using the Pretty Patches Pumpkin set and came out here ...


I used Country Charm patches to mount them on and a sentiment from Happy Harvest (I've had a LOT of fun with that set!)

A white gel pen came in handy for some faux stitching and the background was lightly texturised using Hero Arts Envelope Pattern stamp!

Thanks for popping in and enjoy HOPPING! :0)

WCMD and ....

....in Canada, Happy Thanksgiving weekend!

Here is a little card to celebrate a little crafty-ness and a whole lot of gratitude!


This is an emboss resist technique, with a little twist that I enjoyed. I started by stamping the veins of the leaf, then clear embossed the leaf image over the top.

Distress inks were blended in a circle (using a mask) to create the fall colour that the leaf is missing.

A little pearl finishes the image off.

I hope this finds you with your mojo-a-flowing and many wonderful things to feel thankful for!

Happy wishes!

A Little Pub Toot ...

A few weeks ago, I was astonished and honoured to be contacted by Papercraft Inspirations Magazine, asking me if they could feature the card I made for the Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz in August, in their Fall issue.

The magazine went on sale in the U.K. on September the 28th, and my little card went out inside it - to visit all the wonderful folks in Europe first ... and apparently the magazine will be selling in North America some time near the end of November.


I just wanted to say THANK YOU to Papercraft Inspirations for including my card in such an unexpected and wonderful way! 

And thank you to YOU wonderful people who are so PATIENT when my blogging gets erRaTiC ... :0)

I do have a card to share in the next day or two!
