Well I decided to chose Autumn/Leaves for this week challenge - I know exactly what I intended to do - I was going to created a background with leaves. I couldn't find my leaf stamps anywhere - I really should stop re-arranging my shelves and drawers - when I have I can never find a thing!!!
I ended up quickly throwing a card together and I'm no very happy about it. I do love the cute image is Stampendous Garlic Scare and coloured with Copic Markers. The papers are Basic Grey Indian Summer. I added a Memory Box Grove Branch from which I decided to dangle some leaf charms.........I wish I'd never took me forever and didn't look as effected IRL as my imagine saw it!!!
I added some Peg Stamp leaves as the carpet Muzzy was escaping from and finally added some voile multi-coloured ribbon.  Here came the next problem - the ribbon was creased so I used my hair irons to straighten up - it melted!!! My next job today is to clean up my hair irons before I can use them again.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a brilliant week!!

Oh my goodness Heather - what a story of how this gorgeous card came together. I'm sorry that you had to go through all that to come up with such a beauty! It's a good thing you did or we wouldn't have this fabulous and rich and super adorable Onion running after Mousey creation to stare at!! heheheh... I especially love the charms hanging from the branches. Brilliant! Love this. Ans sorry about you hair iron issue. Hope you get it cleaned off. :(

Hi Heather, this card just made me smile this morning when I saw it. What a fun stamp and colored to perfection. Love your card, you are too critical of yourself!!!! I also hate it when you know you have something and can't find it. Charms are a great to touch too.

Gorgeous card Heather :-) I just got this image and need to ink it up now ! your colouring is amazing and I love the leaf charms hanging from the branch, well worth all the effort :-)
Hope you can clean your straighteners !! I bought some really cheap mini ones from Boots when I was there especially for ribbons,,, might be worth the investment ;-)
