Back to Normal

Well it's all over like a Wedding!
We had a fabulous day, the weather was glorious and so warm, we couldn't have asked for more.
I only have a couple of photos that I managed to take, so can't bore you!

The happy couple are now in Mexico having a wonderful time - and life is now getting back to normal.  I did promise myself a 'me' day yesterday, but only managed a short time as 3 lots of visitors put paid to that idea.

Anyhow, I did make one tag - the very kind Ignacio of Nicecrane  Designs gave me some images to play with a couple of weeks ago which were perfect for Autumnal cards, so I just had to have a play.  The image is from the Tom Sawyer collection.

I softly coloured with Distress inks and layered onto torn corrugated cardboard that had been distressed and then heat embossed with copper powder, I stamped leaves and painted with Distress Crackle.  My letters were coloured with DI's and then sprinkled with the copper embossing powder.  I saw the sentiment a couple of times yesterday - sorry I can't remember where, so printed it as it fitted perfectly with my falling leaves theme.

I am entering this at:
  C.R.A.F.T - Autumn/Halloween/Thanksgiving
  Creative Belli - Leaves
  Divas by Design - 3 or more layers
  Rhedd and Rosies - Shades of Autumn

Before I go and do some blog visiting to see what I have been missing, I would like to say, 'hello' to my newest followers,  it's great that you want to join me on my crafting journey.
Thanks for visiting, and I hope you all have a great weekend.

Avril xx
