All about Autumn and puppy picture

Hello Peeps, just a quick post to let you know I'm still about and a picture of Buffy and Daisy who is now twelve weeks old and the most hyperactive puppy I have even come across, but absolutely adorable of course. One day I might even get all six of them in one place at one time for a canine family portrait.

Due to this enforced crafting lay off, a share of a card I did a month or two back for Stampalot samples, but not yet blogged so I thought I would use it for a few challenges.

The card above is using good old favourite.......are you ready for it......Stampendous P107 Agapanthus cluster along with Hero Arts S5316 silhouette grass, F5042 leaf flourish and G3316 harlequin. All stamped with versafine sepia onto a background created with Tim Holtz mustard seed and wild honey. I distressed the edges and embossed with detail gold. The sentiment is Hero CG189 which I cut into pieces after stamping. I made the rose from grunge paper stamping with the same swirl stamp and colouring with the TH inks. This is for the following challenges:

The Stampman - Distressed
Creative Card Crew - Autumn/Fall Colours
Spoonful of Sugar - Fall into Autumn Colours

My second card is a really quick and simple one following the Midnight Madness sketch this week. The DP is Crate Paper which I also used to make a rather full flower using my Tattered Floral Die. A border using Martha Stewart floral vine and Sizzix swirls. The sentiment is Penny Black 4075F which I think is a lovely verse with so many applications and to finish a generous helping of gems or should I say diamonds ? This card is for the following challenges:

By the Cute and Girly - Indian Summer
Tuesday Taggers - Diamonds are Forever (memo to Tagger girls, have to say this is an awesome theme, very imaginative indeed)

  9. 2 stunning cards Brenda. I love them both. And these doggies. I just love Labradors. My choccie Lab is 10 now and I think she misses the old Cocker since she died in May. I'd love another one! We've had a yellow one too so the only one left to have is black!

    Hope you're taking care of yourself Brenda and getting plenty of rest.

  21. Good luck trying to get all six dogs in a photo! It reminds me of when a photographer from the local paper came round to photograph our goat and her four kids, it was hilarious getting them all together for an acceptable photograph!
    Your cards, as always, are gorgeous. I love the tattered florals flowers.
