Autumn Leaves!

Hello, Thank you so much for visiting me!  I am not doing too well at the moment.  My ME/CFS is really bad so the description will be less than normal as writing this post is quite difficult for me.  I haven't been crafting for a while but, luckily, have quite a few cards I have already made but have not blogged so I can keep up with you and enter challenges when I can.

Products used: 

The leaf is from a Creative Expressions stamp set - I can't remember the name.
Bronze, Gold and Mottled Green embossing powders.
Versamark ink.
Scraps of Kraft card.
Spellbinders Labels Four.
Autumn word stamp by Clarity Stamp.
Cream Card.
Gorgeous mottled bronze/gold shiny card base.
Scrap of string.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Pixie's Snippets Playgound - Use Snippets.
That's Crafty - Forever Autumn.
A Vintage Journey - Crazy for Autumn Colour.
Allsorts - Trees and Leaves.
Penny Black Allsorts - Close to Nature.

I will visit your blogs when I can.  Thank you so much for visiting.  Take care.  Christine xxx
