I love this time of year. I hate this time of year.
I love the coolness of the day, the changing colours of the leaves, the autumn sunshine, the early morning mist, the build up to Christmas.
I hate the never ending virul infections that plague me this time of year. This autumn seems to be no different and I have been struggling with a nasty little bug again for the last few weeks.
I don't need much of an excuse to cheer myself up, and to help me feel a little better I ordered some new stash from Papertreyink.
It has worked and I'm feeling better already lol.
This set is called "Harvest Berries". I have created 2 contrasting cards using SU's Rich Razzleberry, and Papertry's Vintage Cream cardstock.
I cut the rectangular aperture carefully with a craft knife, cutting round some of the leaves so that it forms part of the frame.
I've also stamped the inside of the card so that the leaves can be seen through the aperture.
For the berries I've just used some black gems.
The sentiments are from Papertrey's Star Prints stamp set.
As ever, work is sapping me of my time and energy...I'm sorry that I don't get to leave you messages as often as I would like. I think inevitably I will not be able to post as often either, there just aren't enough hours in the day. I would rather post less frequently and bring you I hope some decent stuff rather than rush and be unhappy with the creations I post.
Whatever happens you can rest assured I will do my best!
