Well I've had a lovely quite weekend after Fridays fab afternoon at Imagine That. I have to say I saw a sneak peak of two classes coming up next quarter and can't wait.I've not been idle though I've made a further 10 Christmas cards bringing the grand total to 64. I've also made a mosaic coaster which was a crafting gift from some friends as a thank you for feeding their guinea pigs, much better than the beer hubby got of course.I've also started decorating a little altered art birdhouse for the Christmas tree.
Now I've had to wait until hubby returned from his weekend in the IOW to post this as he had taken the camera. He has now returned with loads of photos for me to magically put on a disc for him so he can see them. He just doesn't have a clue how to do it and they say men are more technically minded, well not in this house.
Stamps are from Darkroom Door. Then lots of good old Tim Holtz Distressed inks, spiced marmalade, crushed olive and wild honey inks. I used Stampin'up chocolate chip to stamp the flowers. I did try stamping the sentiment in brown but it just didn't look right.

I'm entering this card for several challenges.

Let's Ink It Up - Use your favourite stamp and a charm too.

The ABC Challenge - D is for Distressing_ I used Distressed Inks

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Fall in Autumn Colour challenge
