Autumn leaves

Morning all from a very wet and windy campsite in Carlisle , and I am referring to the weather!!!!

How has Friday treated you so far? Ok I hope...

We had a lovely nights sleep , snuggled down in our little van. Karl does like to listen to the sound of rain on its's a good job as we do seem to get rather a lot of rain.

The journey up here yesterday was eventful with the motorway closed near Kendal all morning due to a crane catching fire,,,thank goodness by the time we get there , two lanes were open .

Today we are heading up to Cairnryan to get the ferry over to Belfast. We are spending the evening with our lovely friends Sharon and Michael, and they are always great company.

Tomorrow is our workshop , Linda is fab at getting the hall ready, it is always great to catch up with Angela, oh she always make me smile,Claire is travelling up and ,,then there are all the lovely new friends that I have met over here, Norma and so many other .... I am really looking forwards to our day ...and then a lovely relaxing meal in the evening...oh it really doesn't get any better....( just hope that Karl can get the match on my phone...he won't be a happy bunny if he misses his beloved United )

This autumn weather may be wet, but I do love the colours that it you may have guessed they really are my favourite colours...all those Browns, oranges and reds..

So here is a little play with some Clarity stamps and a stencil that were on Hochanda this week...

I really loved making this....pure Clarity for me...


I started off by stamping using the blackout radiance ink pad....

Then added the stencil , oh it fits perfectly....and some yellow Artistry ink

Next some fine know what I's never to early for fine wine!!!

This is what I had when I removed the stencil, nice ...but it still needed more

So out with my Spectrum Noir pencils , yes , that's better

Some more fine wine,

A sentiment and some doodle lines

Then to finish off some matting and layering and glossy Accents

Look how they dry,,.what a difference...

I hope you like this as much as I do....and a card design that is so versatile, fit for so many occasions...even fit for a man,,,,( well they can be difficult !!!!)

Thanks for joining me today...I will pop back with photos from the weekend,

Take care all

Have a fabulous weekend

And see you soon

Jo. Xxxx
