Autumn Abundance

Another fabulous day here with Anna and the abundance is the food as well as the beautiful Autumn scenery.  So we started the day with fresh fruit and then crafting.  Then we popped out to lunch to The Wheatsheaf at Oaksey, another great find by Anna.  We started with the sharing platter, devils on horseback, ducks egg scotch egg, olives and home-made bread - yum.  Then we both had the beef roast dinner and everything that was served was perfect.  As we were full we left having dessert until we got back, but I'm sure it would have been delicious.

Here's what I made after we got back.  I was inspired by the front cover of a recent Papercrafts magazine and a card by Maile Belles and decided to have a play but went all pink.  The pinkness was inspired by the challenge at:
Stamp Something - Stamp something pink
Chicken Soup - recipe #18 - the patchwork effect is what inspired me.

Supplies used:
Card - Papertrey Ink
Ink - versamark
Embossing powder - clear
Stamps - fancy flourishes, round and round

This card was inspired by the challenge at:
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - zig zags - those butterflies are definitely zig zagging

Supplies used:
Card - Papertrey Ink
Ink - versamark
Embossing powder - clear
Stamps - Penny Black -  Butterflies and Happy Birthday

You know what I'm like when I like something, so here's a third card using the same technique.  I'm popping this one into the challenge at:
Card Patterns - sketch #88
The wording under the Sending You says "a hug with a fold in the middle"

Supplies used:
Card - Papertrey Ink
Ink - versamark
Embossing powder - clear
Stamps - Penny Black -  Rose, Papertrey Ink - Big & Bold Wishes

One last card for today, to wish you a Happy Halloween, inspired by the challenge at:
Totally Gorjuss - Spooky

Hope your day has been Spooktacular!
