Pumpkins and Autumn

 Morning and I have two posts today---delighted to say I was invited to join the Stamping Sensations DT and this is  my first DT card for Stamping Sensations and the challenge is Autumn.

There are two prizes from Highlight Crafts.


 

I used the Pumpkins stamp from The Basic Veggies set from AALL&Create coloured with promarkers and the coloured splats were made with the end of a cork from a bottle of Bucks Fizz and oxide inks lol.

The next background was an unused one made with acrylic paints and the very background one was copy paper that I used when spraying my die-cut leaves a few months ago.

Smash Your Stash

 Well today is my 72nd birthday and despite that didn't realise it was also the last Saturday of the month which means its the monthly Smash Your Stash Journal page challenge with VICKI who always makes amazing journal pages and is more organised than me so hope you will check  her blog.

I commented on her blog last night and she mentioned working on a journal page---WHAT??? quick check of the calendar and panic stations !!! Not sure why I was surpised same every month and never know what day it is even caused a panic in local Cooplands on Wednesday when I said it was Thursday! The assistant panicked because she picked her daughter up on a Thursday and a customer panicked because he was going to Germany Friday and hadn't packed lol good job they didn't ban me!

The theme this month is  "Use Scraps od Paper" well I have loads of those so sorted a few out and realised a few had Bees on so worked with that deviating from my original plan -no surprise there!

I swiped the page with a couple of oxide inks,added some details with a white gelly rool pen/gold gel pen-added a couple of die-cut Bees I found and a little wooden one from stash.I also added a few strips of washi tape too and a couple of splats using oxide ink and the end of a cork and a sentiment from IndigoBlu---panic over thank goodness!
