Oh my gosh! did I have a lovely time making these cards yesterday! (yes I did). It was raining drizzle fashion in the morning and then the sun came out - so I had to go outside and abandon card making for the sunshine and some blackberry picking activity. Then it got colder and I was back indoors finishing the cards off.
All of the cards I made were using the 'Bells are Ringing' bundle from the new Stampin' Up seasonal catalogue. I posted some catalogues out this monday to current customers but if you didn't get one and would like one just contact me. This bundle is one of the cheapest stamp set + dies bundles in the catalogue and so I decided it was a good one to choose.
I have put a couple of photos below of my walk and blackberrying - I am loving living in the country!
Below is the front of my house which I have not really ever looked at because I always go around the backdoor! It is on the road (country lane really) I have a little post box on the gate.
Blackberrying is such fun, it outweighs the risk assessment! (always the auditor!) The risks of being stung by nettles, bees, horseflies and prickled by blackberry thorns, of tripping on lengths of blackberry roots and falling down a hidden ditch in a bid to just reach that lovely shiny fat blackberry! All of which were achieved on this particular foray up the lane and were nursed in a nice hot bath last night and some germolene cream.It does feel very strange doing Christmas when it is so obviously nearly Autumn - I might have to do some autumn stuff next time I venture into the craft room! However it is good to get some cards up and running so you can check out what is on offer in the new seasonal catalogue and I can stash some cards for the busy season!
I hope the sun is out where ever you are, it looks like we may have a lovely weekend coming along so enjoy the beginning of Autumn!
