I Must Say Thank You...

... to all of my followers, including the latest recruits (welcome to you all) for being so generous with your time and effort. I really appreciate hearing from you and am often to be found agreeing with / giggling at / sympathising with your comments. As we zoom ever closer to Christmas the hours appear to evapourate and challenge deadlines loom. With this in mind I will show you my entry for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge - Thankyou (sponsored as ever by Simon Says Stamp) as the closing date is only a couple of days away and I don't want to miss it.


More of my leaves! These were included on purpose (it's been made for a very special person who wanted to see them up close and personal and to whom I am very grateful).


They used lots of parcel paper and kraft glassine covered in various inks and embossing powders. An attempt was made to replicate the real ones in each case.


Lots of bling could have been added but I really wanted the garland of  leaves to make the statement, so some basic Coredinations cardstock above and below did the job nicely.


Originally I created a completely different background but it went wrong (yep, a bit has gone in the notebook of horrors and triumphs!) so I went back to basics and did something far simpler with permanent chalky inks and some Coffee Archival Ink. So there you have it for this one.

Pleased to say I'll be back v. soon with that tag as it got finished (and I really love it!!!) Here's wishing you all a wonderful weekend wherever you are. Hugs, Buttons x

  3. Hi there Buttons - you could not have done better - letting those wonderful leaves speak for themselves is eloquence enough. The clean thank-you and muted background are perfect. I laugh and love "notebook of horrors and triumphs" - my one of those is a very large volume enlarging daily! Looking forward to your tag. Have a lovely weekend. Nicola x
