Stamptember in October


I'm so late with this one and I do feel like the white Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland. I won a fabulous Stamptember kit from Simon Says Stamps collaboration with Altenew, the wonderful layered roses. I used Halloween colours for them, it could work at spring time too. The sentiment says in "Wild roses and friends...always come back" in Swedish. The other half of the sentiment is hidden inside the card.

You can find the stamp set here.

Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp: Colour challenge
Addicted to stamps: Anything Goes
Crafty Catz: Anything Goes


Golden embossing powder and a Sakura pen.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated! We've been enjoying a wonderful warm and sunny day. We walked to a plant nursery near by that has a nice café at an old Orangery and could sit outdoors, that's extraordinary in October. I hope that your day also was filled with warmth and sunshine.

Sketchy feeling



Friday is here, whoop whoop! Time to Show Your Face and I have four of them. One evening the sketching bug caught me really bad, so I just draw some faces from my mind. It's quite fun and relaxing.


Thank you for visiting, it's much appreciated! Have a wonderful weekend, sweeties!
