Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #58

Hello folks - Happy Monday - but what dreadful weather we're having here in Wales!
Hip hip hooray though, I have the week off!!! Just a quickie post before going off to dye my hair, and then plan a few Christmas cards!

This is the second of a small batch of November birthday cards I need to make - I am going to enter it in this week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which is Four Seasons. I have chosen to make an Autumn card. I have used an Ollyfant stamp (Autumn 2, which includes a boy, girl, umbrella, dog, hedgehog and a mushroom - what a fantastic deal!). The poor girl looks so windswept, and her umbrella is blowing away in the wind (another penny slider) - I was so pleased with the way this worked! I thought the background paper looked as though it was a bit 'blowy' too!

I made the charm using a HOTP sentiment stamp, and added some glossy accents and seed beeds to it, and also glossed her boots. Her coat and the umbrella were paper pieced - I was going to add glossy accents to them too, but I was afraid to in case the paper curled up - one to try when I have more time if something goes wrong (not for a last minute card!!).

Well, that's it from me for now - may be back later!

Love, Andrea xx
