................................and November already!
Oh my goodness! Time is flying!
Well I have a lot to show you today so keep with me!
Firstly it is Saturday so it is the Allsorts Challenge and today the Team have been asked to make a card using .................
and this is my take on the title ~
I have used a Pinflair scene as the background and coloured with Gentle Blends. The main focal point is the owl which is one of Joanna Sheen's mdf shapes, I have inked it and then embossed it with bronze embossing powder. These shapes are stunning and you can find them on Joanna's website. they are so unusal and can be used for so many different projects but still light enough to put onto a card. The leaves are from Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves die and I have inked and stained them to give a real Autumn feel. The branch is also a Tim Holtz die. Matting and layering the design finished off the card. I hope that you like it. The real leaves on our window sill in the shop seem to have joined in with the picture but hope that you can see the card!
We have had a busy week starting with a trip to the Tower of London to see the spectacular Poppy display. Thousands of people had the same idea - it was so busy but well worth the trip. Here are a few pictures so that you can see the amazing project ~
When the display is finished there will be 888,264 poppies representing the lives that were lost in the First World War. If you have the time before they are taken away after Remembrance Sunday I would highly recommend a visit. It is truly breathtaking.
Also this week we have had the Children's Halloween craft class which has become a regular activity at Let's Create and these are a few of the pictures we took and also the window at the shop which looks fabulous!
The children choosing their leaf before painting them and making them into ghosts!
