LIM week 41 one layer- leaves


I've really missed my crafting this week. On Monday I flew to Glasgow for work and didn't get back until late Tuesday evening. Yesterday I left the house at 5.45am and got back at 8.45pm from Croydon - the trains were a nightmare and no drinks either! So, time to chill out today and enter this week's Less Is More Challenge which is for one layer and leaves. I've actually made two cards. The first one is using Tapestry stamps through a leaf stencil and the second is a stamp that I added a few glitters one of which is called Autumn fire and is strands rather than particles of glitter. I hope to be back to my normal commenting this week, so sorry to have missed all the Limette cards for the last couple of weeks.
I'd also like to enter the second card into the DYSU challenge-inspired by a song - Autumn of my Life - Bobby Goldsboro.

Gorgeous cards again, I love the little tapestry stamps and using them as you have through a leaf template has worked brilliantly but my favourite is the tall glittered tree, fab bronze glitter adore bronzy glitter yum. Hope you're week is better this week, you were just 20 mins drive from me when you came down to Croydon but I don't envy you that journey, no drinks what were they thinking? Gay xxx
