Autumn shades...

Wow, so it's been a week since I last blogged -naughty me! What has happened in those 7 days in the world of Han? Well...quite a bit I can tell you! Mr Hannah and I have decided to go to 5 weeks time! Nothing like last minute eh? His parents are out there for a month and his sister and her boyfriend are joining them for the last two weeks, as are we now. I'm very VERY excited about it but that doesn't leave much time to organise things but I'm slowly starting to tick things off my long list.

Obviously that takes first priority at the moment so crafting has taken a back seat but I managed to find some time last night to make a card. I chose to combine my card for this week's Anyone for Anya challenge which was 'Autumn Colours' as well as Passion for Promarkers which was Any colour + sketch. Well here is the sketch....

And here is my interpretation of the sketch and 'autumn colours'...

A close up of Anya coloured in with promarkers of course (excuse the poor pic!)...

Tried a bit of DIY decoupage this week with the flower on her hair...

The beautiful flowers came from Oxfam. They are cotton rags would you believe it! Only £2.99 for a good selection and they have brights, christmassy colours and pastel shades. I put the gold gems on myself...

Thought i'd try two colours of ribbon this week...trimmed the ends to a point...

My 'celebrate' stamp from Studio G inked in gold and embellished with adhesive gold gems...

Final look at the card to see which bits of the card are raised...


Backing paper is - DCWV Pet Stack
Plain Cardstock -The Paper Mill
Martha Stewart Doily Punch
Gold Adhesive Gems - Papermania
Ribbon - Hobbycraft (29p a metre)
Sentiment - Studio G
Flowers - Oxfam
TGF Wild Sprout Stamp - Dahlia. Coloured in with Promarkers (Ivory, Blus, Vanilla, Saffron, Cinammon, Cocoa, Pastel Beige, Berry Red, Poppy, Moss, Grass, Gold)

I managed to organise my stash completely last night which is great because I now know where everything is - hurrah! Hopefully my card-making sessions will be a bit more productive now that I won't spend half my time rooting around for a particular item!

Anyway, must get back to 'real' work :( Have a great Monday!

Much love,
