I’m not sure about you, but we have been spending quite a bit of our “shelter at home” time, out in the garden, enjoying the sunshine and fresh air (well, except the last couple of days which have been rather chilly and overcast), and getting stuck into the garden.
Since it’s the end of Autumn here in Australia, it’s a great time to get our garden in to tip-top shape and we are enjoying having the time to make the most of it.
I’m also enjoying some time to do some stamping and cardmaking, and have been sorting out all the retiring things, so that I have room for new goodies that come with a new Stampin’ Up! catalogue.
I do get sad though, I love all of the gorgeous Designer Series Papers, it is my special addiction, I just have to have it all!
But then I don’t like to cut it up and use it.
I don’t think I am the only one with this addiction though.
Anyway, I found some retired Designer Series Paper which was just perfect for the current challenge at The Male Room, which is “In The Garden”, and made up this card especially for the challenge.
The gorgeous stamp is from the French Countryside stamp set, one that is, unfortunately, retiring in a week or so. It’s gorgeous for colouring and hasn’t had enough use in my craft room.
And isn’t that gorgeous pumpkin paper just perfect for Autumn?
I have popped a strip of it inside the card to keep the theme going.
Hope you are having a crafty day.
