Hello, friends and anyone who has found themselves here by accident!!
Today's card is all about the new challenge at As You Like It. We are showcasing the straight or curved this time. Circles or squares, curves, rounded edges or straight lines, whatever you prefer we would love to see it.
I like order, symmetry and straight lines so this was an easy one for me, although I do have a little circle sentiment so, for that, I hope you will forgive me!!
I made this for our very special Grandaughter, Mollie Rose, who started school on Monday!! Yes friends, you have been following me a loooong time if you can remember when she was born here. She's all grown up and, of course, I had to colour the card to suit her uniform. The adorable little image was coloured with Promarkers and, once again, my stash came up trumps with a school type paper pad( Kaisercraft Class of '87) and some coordinating elements that finished it off beautifully.
Here is the little lady of the moment in all her glory...
...so proud of her.
Look at the leaves though, a sure sign that Autumn is truly approaching. Our cherry tree is casting leaves really heavily. We picked sloes from our hedges at the weekend (not as many as last year) so started the Sloe Gin off on Tuesday. Then I picked blackberries for Bramble jelly so am stocking up nicely!! The tomatoes have done really well this year too so I have also made several jars of chutney, not my favourite thing to make as the smell is so awful...anybody have any tips to share to avoid the vinegary smell at all?
So that's me for today. See you soon xx
