Crafty Calendar Challenge

Today is the start of the Crafty Calendar Challenge blog with a new challenge every month, so plenty of time to enter. The theme this month is Autumn and with it all the gorgeous colours it brings, a added extra is to include plants or vegetation in your design.
I was having a play with my Martha stewart punch on this card and punched down the side of my card, it is hard to photography but there is a chunk out of the side of my card lol.
What I have used-
Tilda with bird coloured with copics
Martha stewart punch
Su flower punch and tag punches
Su sentiment stamp
Lace and pearls from craft box or should say boxes and boxes

Now I just wanted to show you my little terror, he is always going near my craft desk infact both of our dogs love to be near/under or on my desk. I think I need to do some hoovering because he came out from under my chair like this with a sticky pad on his nose end.

I would also like to say thankyou for all your lovely comments on my cards and my getting through to sketch Saturday design team. I am so looking forward to working with a lovely bunch of ladies and feel very honoured to have been chosen.

Hi Louise

This is yummy, how did yuou do those gorgeous flowers ? And the punched out section makes it all so unusual.

And well done on the DT spot, sorry missed it off last time.

Your crafting companion is adorable, mine like to 'help' as well, have you ever seen glittered labradores ? George in particular wears it well as he is black - very fetching.

Hi Louise

Though I might meet you today, went to Stampalot then on to Springfields so popped over to say hello but they said you left at 1 today. Missed you by minutes, took me ages to find that section, so another time.

Pleased to hear you are joining the 'elite force', although I have not got much this term as was afraid to book too much due these health issues not clearing up properly.

Mel said...

Hi Louise, i do love your colour combinations.
Lovely card. My binnies are usually covered in glitter ! well the whole house sparkles actually but at least the glitter twinkling in the light helps detract your attention from the dust ! Mel x

SemSee said...

Gorgeous card, Louise! I love the little lace bows and what you did with that MS punch - I've never seen it used like that before, but it's FAB! I'll have to have a go! Hugs, Sem x
