Hugs and Kisses

Hello friends, thanks so much  for stopping by.  The week is well underway and the weekend has officially flown by - how does that happen?! I have been busy in The Studio creating a number of different projects, inbetween Design Team Projects and Publications I like to try and use some of the bit and pieces that endlessly gather on my desk, along with some Collectibles that are given to me by a very generous friend.   In saying that...I have another quick share...

My card front has been created using papers from my stash, with two papers 10cm x7.5cm being joined across the centre vertically - a great way to use those left  over pieces. I have cut/embossed the  card front using Spellbinders Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine and popped up onto a slightly larger pre-cut A-Frame pink card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.

I have played with Kaisercraft Collectibles until I am happy with how they look, a little tip - I often photograph the card front incase I forget exactly how it was and need to check the photo for reference - it can save a lot of angst.  They have been popped up with Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam 

I think this is another card where the the colours have been inspired by the change of seasons here in the Southern Hemisphere - autumn/fall is here and we are loving the cooler temps. Are you inspired by seasons or nature?
