An Autumn Card to Challenge The Weather?



Todays card is an Autumn themed card which I think is quite cute!

I used an image, and backing papers given free within
that I subscribe, which is issued every month.
I have subscribed to this magazine for some years now and surely,
I should be given a long service medal!!!! 😄😄

Anyway, I used one of a collection of some gorgeous printed papers
with the lovely, cute, and colourful image of the girl with the umbrella.
I die cut that into a rectangle, matted that to a mini scalloped die cut
which is slightly larger. I then die cut an even bigger rectangle in a gorgeous mini leaves in multiple autumnal colours, having die cut a smalled mini scalloped rectangle at the same time for the sentiment to go on,
I decided to add the ribbon (well cord actually but very smooth), across
the dark caramel coloured backing card. The finishing touches are
the words "Thank You" and the 3 Stickles Glitter Glue in a metallic orange.

The colours on the card match almost fully, to the stated colours on
the "Color Throwdown Challenge Blog" for this week....

Not Just Cards Challenge Blog time today.......



Hiya peeps

Yes its time for a new challenge over at

As always, our challenges are Just For Fun with a
blog badge for the winner and the top three positions.
The theme is always Anything Goes too!!!


This month I made a card for a Facebook Friend's 50th Birthday,
I decided to use the Rose Gold Moments Collection by Hunkydory as I had
the set just sitting on a shelf not being used for almost, if not all of a year or more! Lol, Ive got to stop my spending for a long time...

The base card itself, was made up of 2 x A4 sheets of Linen effect
250gsm white cardstock from Papermill Direct. I then chose the cover
piece of card, cutting it down to the right size and then mounting it etc.
The only details I needed to add were the downstrip card ribbon the to sentiments and the arched image that matches the backing card perfectly.
The card ribbon is as flush as can be to the backing card then I used foam pads to add the image & two small sentiments. The circle "Bid 50" is an after thought of mine using a pinky beige coloured paper to cut it out. The last item to add was the insert.....
Overall the card measures out as almost 9 inch x 8 1/2 inch.
